2013 saw an increase in orders from the Italian fine chemical and pharmaceutical sectors
Edwards celebrates a successful 2013 in the fine chemical and pharmaceutical sectors in Italy. Many European companies in these sectors, particularly in Italy and exporting worldwide, have placed orders with the company for chemical dry vacuum systems during 2013.
Edwards’ chemical dry vacuum pumps offer clean and robust vacuum solutions. Companies who require pumps for chemical and pharmaceutical applications have ordered CDX and CXS screw pumps and EDP reverse claw pumps, in combinations with mechanical boosters.
CDX pumps are particularly useful in drying and other applications where high pumping speeds are required at high inlet pressures. For those companies using vacuum systems for distillation or reactor service applications, CXS pumps or EDP pumps, sometimes in combination with mechanical boosters, are usually the most suitable. One advantage of the CXS pump is that it is a complete, compact ‘plug and pump’ solution, enabling customers to save money and time. Another is that it is very quiet, which is particularly important when pumps are situated in an area where people are working.
Gianluca Grazzini, Sales Manager, General Vacuum for Italy, Edwards, said: 'Edwards is a world leader in the design, technology and manufacture of dry vacuum solutions for fine chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Our applications expertise has enabled us to develop strong partnerships and we are delighted to be able to share our customers’ successes. We remain a market leader in this sector in Italy thanks to our application expertise and our reliable, high quality products.'
CXS is Edwards’ most advanced chemical dry pump featuring cutting-edge tapered screw technology for exceptional energy efficiency and performance. It has excellent reliability, is environmentally friendly and gives very good liquid and solids handling. The CXS offers low maintenance, with up to five years between services, which together with low energy usage and utility costs provides chemical and pharmaceutical companies with a low cost of ownership for vacuum.
