Coca Cola chooses Rietschle

Rietschle Thomas has supplied the vacuum system for five production lines at Coca Cola Enterprises’ plant in Milton Keynes, UK. The system will help process the packaging on the production lines for Capri Sun, a lunchbox juice drink. CCE opted for five Zephyr VLR300 claw vacuum pumps to supply a constant vacuum to the five production lines: backed up by a high-capacity Covac SMV300 multi-stage side channel pump for stand-by duties. CCE site service manger, Peter Philbrick, chose the frictionless, claw vacuum pumps partly for their dry-running design, since oil-lubricated pumps are not welcome in the food-packaging environment. Their low maintenance regime was also an important factor, according to Mr Phillbrick. The Rietschle Thomas multi-claw series are twin-shaft, rotary claw units, which generate frictionless vacuum (or pressure), offering an economic alternative to dry-running rotary vane pumps.
