Industrial Vacuum Increases Productivity by Compressing Scraps

MALVERN, Pa., Oct. 14, 2005 - Maintaining cleanliness through the product packaging process is a major challenge for packagers everywhere. The removal of build up at source can effectively ensure a high-quality process, and to meet that need, industrial vacuum manufacturer Nilfisk-Advance America has developed the CFM R Series of vacuums for packagers. A valuable resource, the CFM R Series vacuums efficiently capture packaging material such as cardboard, foil, plastic and paper at the source, then compress it up to 300%, greatly reducing the number of times per shift the tank needs to be emptied.

The CFM R Series combines the collection and compression of packaging scraps to not only increase total collection capacity, but also improve overall productivity.

Saving companies valuable maintenance time and effort, the CFM R Series vacuums deliver the powerful performance of large, continuous-duty vacuums in a compact machine. In addition to their scrap-compacting capability, the vacuums also have a small footprint (4-8 square feet) and a vertical-base configuration, making them ideal for packaging suites where floor space is at a premium.

The R Series is designed to run virtually maintenance-free across extended periods of use, and features a simple, streamlined user interface. Other key features include container latches for quick access to the collection tank and a viewing window so operators can see when the polyester filter bag needs to be emptied. Mounted on wheels for easy maneuverability, the vacuum also runs quiet, increasing user comfort.
