Vacuum equipment specialist Leybold UK, based in  Chessington, Surrey, has been recognised by the Instrumentation Excellence  Awards. The Leybold Hygienic Enclosure for vacuum pumps has won Product  of the Year Cases and Enclosures.

Leybold UK was honoured and  pleased to receive the Instrumentation Excellence Awards during the award  ceremony on 19th October in London. 

Hygienic Enclosures for Vacuum Pumps 

Food Safety is essential for the food market and typically food producers & processors disinfect  their installations and machines daily just to guarantee a high Food Safety level. Vacuum  pumps are mainly built-in or installed next to the machinery and that’s with only poor or even  no protection at all. Most vacuum pumps cannot cope with daily washdowns, especially with  aggressive cleaning media, these result in corroded vacuum pumps, reduced life cycles or  even increased risks of pollution. To avoid this, Leybold has developed a range of Stainless Steel Hygienic Enclosures. The enclosures are simple and don’t interfere with the pump’s  operations. 

“Receiving the Product of the Year Award in this category in particular is a special recognition  of the quality of our products in the area of food processing,”says Juliane Garz, Business Line  Manager Leybold. “It’s impossible to overstate the importance of safety and quality in food  manufacturing and with the Hygienic Enclosure food applications can now be operated more  hygienically, ergonomically and flexibly.” 

Vacuum systems are used in a wide range of applications and processes 

Leybold designs and manufactures vacuum pumps, systems and components that create the  necessary production conditions for the industrial manufacture of semiconductors, data  carriers, displays, coated architectural glass and solar cells. Vacuum systems are critical to  food processing and packaging, especially when it comes to food safety, improved shelf life  and ease of processing. Vacuum is also indispensable for the operation of mass spectrometers  and electron microscopes as well as in almost all areas of modern research and development,  including space simulation and exploration.
