An industry on the rise
The demand for board and tissue products is increasing and shows no sign of slowing down. At the same time, prices of energy and water are steadily rising, and technological solutions to reduce energy and water consumption in paper production lines are in high demand.
Ingenious solutions for the paper industry
TURBAIR® vacuum systems by MAN Diesel & Turbo are designed for paper sheet dewatering and felt conditioning on paper, board, tissue and pulp machines. They help reduce the energy consumption in the paper production flow and will effectively lower the demand for process water to an unprecedented low.
Increasing your production efficiency
The ecological and economic advantages offered by TURBAIR® effectively enhance the competitiveness of the production processes. Today, paper producers around the world are replacing existing vacuum systems with the far more efficient TURBAIR® systems.
A modular solution
The modular TURBAIR® vacuum systems are available in single and multi-stage variants and offer considerable potential for energy recycling. The systems can deliver suction flow rates up to 3000 m3/min and achieve vacuum pressure down to 80 kPa.
Experience to back you up
For more than 60 years, well over 1000 TURBAIR® vacuum systems have been installed around the world, replacing the traditional liquid ring pumps. Whether we are talking about refitting or new designs, you can trust our experience and wide range of engineering and project management skills.
The result: A much more efficient production line and less environmental impact, too.
