Thorite has a supplied three PIAB vacuum pumps to McCambridge Foods of Blackburn, a producer of mince pies. A bumper pre- Christmas production run put a noticeable strain on existing pumps, with a reduction in vacuum resulting in batches of pastry casings being pulled out of place or damaged.

Clive Halliday, Thorite's process & vacuum manager, recommended PIAB's P6010 Coax Technology pumps, to achieve more powerful vacuum, a better 'hold' of pie casings during production, and improved quality control.

He says: "The PIAB P6010 provides up to 40% more flow than conventional vacuum pumps, while still reducing overall energy consumption.

The maintenance-free design makes it suitable for automated material handling, characterised by powerful, non-heat generating suction at very low feed pressures."
