Our vacuum pumps are used to suction body secretions or breathing air in operating and treatment rooms where the feared virus may be present. They are equipped with special filters which prevent the viruses from passing through. In addition, our vacuum pumps do not require operating fluids such as water or oil, which could be contaminated with the viruses.
On January 25, Chinese New Year's Day, Busch China received an emergency order in Shanghai to supply the vacuum pumps from our headquarters in Maulburg. Fortunately, the vacuum pumps were already in our warehouse in Shanghai and could be technically prepared there for this application. Despite the public holidays and the work stoppage imposed by the government, several Busch China employees volunteered to prepare the delivery to Wuhan, located 850 km away, and to install the vacuum pumps in the two new hospitals there.

Busch Vacuum Solutions
was founded by Dr.-Ing. Karl Busch and his wife Ayhan Busch in 1963. Dr.-Ing. Karl Busch developed the “HUCKEPACK”, which was the first vacuum pump that could be used for vacuum packaging of foodstuffs. The follow-up product, the compact “R5” rotary vane vacuum pump, revolutionized food packaging. A further milestone represented the development of the “COBRA” screw vacuum pump. In 1971 the international expansion of the Busch group started with the founding of a sales company in the UK. The first production plant outside Germany was established in the USA in 1979.
