Spain has the second-highest number of confirmed infected people after the USA at 131,646 (status on 6. 4. 2020). Within 48 hours, the Spanish army, firefighters and hundreds of volunteers have now set up and equipped an emergency hospital in an exhibition hall at the Madrid Exhibition Centre. The emergency hospital can accommodate 6,000 patients. 500 of them can receive intensive medical treatment and ventilation.
In order to be able to supply a suitable vacuum system in the shortest possible time, Busch Spain chose an extraordinary path: The vacuum system in its own show room used for training purposes was dismantled without further ado and delivered immediately to Madrid. The vacuum system consists of three R5 rotary vane vacuum pumps, mounted on a vacuum vessel and upstream bacteria filters. Since it was already ready for operation and connection, it could be used immediately.

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.
