Leybold’s Hygienic Enclosures for Vacuum Pumps

23 March 2020

Leybold, a vacuum pump specialist, has developed a series of Hygienic Enclosures to guarantee vacuum pumps are protected from aggressive cleaning media in the food production industry. The company is offering users these stainless steel housings in seven different sizes, tailor made for each vacuum pump. 

In order to counteract potential risks, Leybold has developed a new protection concept with the Hygienic Enclosures. Encased by these stainless steel enclosures, the vacuum pumps can be positioned near machines and systems without any problems. 

These stainless steel enclosures are tailor made for each vacuum pump. As a result, each enclosed pump can run constantly on every working pressure. The only limitation is the maximal ambient temperature for the enclosure. Nevertheless, the normal working temperature in F&P environments are around 10 °C, and the company has qualified most enclosures up to 25°C. Further, all the enclosures are offered as a “Do It Yourself” kit and can be as well installed as commissioned by the user themselves without great effort. “These properties make of the Hygienic Enclosures a cost-effective, sustainable solution. In the end, Hygienic Enclosures make investments in expensive piping obsolete and at the same moment they offer a better pumping speed performance,” argues Niels Gorrebeeck.
