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. 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.

AZMEC is working according to the rules ISO 9001

The vacuum pumps of the range AL/2000 cover a capacity interval from 150 to 12,500 m³/h; the range ALBV/2000 covers capacities from 2,000 to 7,500 m³/h and the characteristic of these pumps is to have practically two pumps in one due to the presence of a divider that creates two sections each 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 that have the same range of capacities of the range AL/2000; with the size ALCZ, pumps available to work without and with the divider, the capacities reach the maximum of 50,000 m³/h; the range ALBC grants capacities from 450 up to 17,000 m³/h and the range ALB4 grants capacities from 4,500 up to 21,000 m³/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 space necessity and to customer installation just to optimize everything both from a technical view and a logistic view just not to have problems in case of maintenance. Just to go inside the maintenances, AZMEC overhauls not only its own machines but also the pumps of competitors; 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 pump.
