“Kivanc Textile paper division’s main target is to be not just the quality leader on the market but also the technology leader and pacemaker for environmental issues. So it was finally quite easy to make decisions relating vacuum system supplier,” says Chairman of Kivanc Textile, Mr. Ziya Kivanc.

“Our discussions with Kıvanç were very much technology-oriented. The cost of energy used by a vacuum system exceeds the investment cost many times over during the system lifetime. Our customer chose the most cost-effective option, in terms of both installation costs and energy efficiency,” says Jussi Lahtinen, Sales Director, Runtech Systems.

Environmentally friendly and energy efficient, RunEco vacuum system provides a reliable, completely water free vacuum solution. Less energy and no water contribute to lower CO2 emissions and smaller environmental footprint. EP Turbo Blowers are always variable speed and capacity, which allows the vacuum system to be optimized quickly without bleed air and with minimal throttling and expansion losses. With integrated high-speed motor controlled by a frequency converter, rotation speed and vacuum level can be adjusted according to the process requirements.
