FayreField Foods has selected Busch to supply its vacuum pump equipment for the company’s new cheese packaging plant in the UK.

Busch will supply and install two R 5 0630 oil lubricated rotary vane vacuum pumps, which provide vacuum for packaging through a Sealed Air Octopus machine. A Busch Puma WP 1000 Roots blower will supply the required end vacuum level and packaging speed.

Busch will also provide a full service contract for FayreField’s new vacuum pump equipment. It claims that the company’s vacuum pumps will provide FayreField Foods with the continuous operation that it needs.

FayreField Foods site director Niel Kerr said the company has decided to open its own packaging plant to have better control and flexibility with product packing activities.

"We took over the old Bentley parts storage facility here in Crewe which has been completely refurbished and transformed into a new and modern packaging plant to meet our exact needs and those of our customers," Kerr added.

Busch UK sales director Mark Sumnall said: "Our strong track record in food manufacturing and processing has stood us in good stead with this project, in particular our experience in the dairy produce sector and we’re excited to have our vacuum pumps installed in this state-of-the-art cheese cutting and packaging facility."

Busch’s vacuum and overpressure pumps can be used in applications such as food, pharmaceuticals, oil and gas, woodworking, printing and packaging.
