Increasingly used in the food packaging industry, modified atmosphere or protective packaging (MAP) extends the shelf life of fresh food without adding additives. To meet this specific application, DVP Vacuum Technology has developed the series of Lubricated Rotary Vane Vacuum Pumps with PFPE oil from 8 to 365 m3/h.

Modified atmosphere packaging preserves the organoleptic properties of fresh foods for longer and keeps them from spoiling thanks to gas mixtures, generally carbon dioxide, nitrogen and oxygen, contained in the atmosphere inside the package.

When the percentage of oxygen is high, the use of traditional oils in the pumps located inside the packaging machines can cause dangerous situations for the working environment. The right solution is the use of the DVP series of Lubricated Rotary Vane Vacuum Pumps with PFPE oil, the special range of pumps with a distinctive red color.

PFPE oil is a special lubricant that is non-reactive to oxygen and 100% non-flammable, ensuring total safety for the pump and machinery. It is also optimal for use in the food industry because it is completely odorless and colorless.

DVP Lubricated Vane Vacuum Pumps with PFPE oil are highly resistant to water vapor suction and are equipped with FKM rubber components, features that make them widely used in the food packaging industry.
