Vacuum plants solutions by AZMEC

The skill and the experience consolidated in 55 years of presence in the market (AZMEC was founded in 1960) say that AZMEC is a serious and available partner for all the companies for the paper mill industry that have to optimize the performances of its own vacuum plant, main part of the paper machine in the production of the paper.

AZMEC is not only proposing its own solutions in new vacuum plants, but allows to the customers, through its overhauling service, to rebuild old pumps working since many years, to the original performances with an accurate revamping operation.

The AZMEC production includes six lines of vacuum pumps, machines available to grant capacities from 150 up to 50.000 mc/h; together with the vacuum pumps, AZMEC offers to the customers all the available accessories that’s to say the driving systems (pulleys and V-belts, gear reducers when the installed power is more than 355 kw), the discharge separators, the silencers, the pre-separation groups, the safety valves, the self-priming extraction pumps and the dampers just to mention the main parts.

The vacuum pumps of the range AL/2000 cover a range of capacity from 150 to 12.500 mc/h; the range ALBV/2000 covers a range of capacities from 2000 to 7500 mc/h and the characteristic of these pumps is to have practically two pumps in one due to the presence of an internal wall that creates two sections each of one available to grant the 50% of the total capacity and different vacuum degrees; the same solution, but with horizontal suction nozzles, is granted from the pumps of the range ALZ/2000 have the same range of capacities of the range AL/2000; with the range ALCZ, pumps available to work without and with the internal wall, the capacities reach the maximum of 50.000 mc/h; the range AL-BC grants capacities from 450 up to 17.000 mc/h and the range AL-B4 grants capacities from 4500 up to 21.000 mc/h. A special care is offered from AZMEC to one of the problems that is present more and more frequently: the reduction of the noise level of the machines according to the laws concerned to the ambient; to get the best solution, AZMEC offers to the customers the covering of the pumps with soundproof panels available to reduce the noise level to 75 dB(A); clearly these solutions can be applied also on machines already installed.

The AZMEC proposal is not concerned only to the supply of its own machines; AZMEC is offering to the customers a complete service for the best arrangement of the vacuum plant; usually AZMEC is preparing a lay-out of the vacuum plant arranged according to the necessity of space and of installation of the custode just to optimize everything both from a technical view and a logistic view just not have problem in case of maintenance.

Just to go inside the maintenances, AZMEC overhauls not only its own machines but also the competition pumps; all the pumps are sent back with the due guarantee and with the test data available to confirm the right operating; to check the eventual necessity to arrange a maintenance, AZMEC can be present with its technicians near the customer workshop to do the measures of capacity, vacuum degree and absorbed power of the vacuum pumps present in the plant.

Usually, AZMEC supply to the customers a spare pump so that the production has not to be stopped during the repairing of the other pump. It’s important to mention the last and very important supplies made recently from AZMEC: new vacuum plant to the company KARTOTECH in Paraguay (n. 1 pump ALC506Z inox + n. 1 pump ALC500Z inox); two new vacuum plants for PM1 and PM2 to CHANDARYA in Kenya (n.4 pumps AL22/2000 + n. 2 pumps ALBV55/2000); ANDRITZ Austria (n. 4 pumps ALC 530 + n. 2 ALBV 95/2000) with final destination Japan; SENECHAL in France (n. 4 pumps AL 22/2000); ENEL in Italy (n. 2 complete turn-key skids AL120/2000, n. 3 complete turn-key skids AL 95/2000) for the Energy plant in Pietrafitta, Porto Corsini, Termini Imerese, Priolo Gargallo and Arezzo; COPASA Spain (n.2 pumps ALC520Z + n. 1 pump AL 120/2000) with final destination Bolivia; ANDRITZ Austria (n. 2 ALC 520Z + n. 1 ALC400Z) with final destination Bangladesh.

The production is arranged in the two Italian workshops in Genova Voltri and in Verderio (LC) where the vacuum pumps are manufactured through the utilization of CNC tool machines and tested in the new certified test room. AZMEC is working according to the rules ISO 9001 and its target is to offer a more and more complete service to the customers, depending to the consolidated quality of its own products and to the efficiency of its staff.
