Illinois Glass Plant Installs Hi-Vac Vacuum System with Manifold Piping

A major worldwide glass container manufacturer has once again chosen HI-VAC and FR&S to design and supply a new vacuum manifold system to support a new furnace and batch house installation in their Illinois facility. The system is anchored by a Heavy-Duty 50 HP Industrial HI-VAC 800 Series Vacuum System and features schedule 40 carbon steel piping with "wearback" sweep elbows and lateral connections to handle the highly abrasive glass cullet and mixed batch. The isometric sketch below was created by FR&S as part of a design engineering contract with the customer. HI-VAC & FR&S have supplied over 30 similar systems to this manufacturer alone across their North American operations.
