The demand for disinfectants is constantly increasing due to the hygienic measures in the fight against COVID-19. Chemical companies all over the world expanded their production capacities or even switched to the production of the urgently needed disinfectants. A customer of Busch Vacuum Solutions
in Canada did exactly the same thing and changed its manufacturing from producing sealants, such as silicones and glues, for the construction industry to producing disinfectants.
The customer is using R5 vacuum pumps in the mixing process for degassing and preventing oxidation. And also for the packaging process of the filled disinfectant bottles and containers. The vacuum pumps are installed in the packaging line for pick and place of cardboards. The sprayable disinfectant bottles are mainly produced for the use in schools and for the employees in hospitals, grocery stores, senior citizen residences, factories and construction sites. With the use of Busch vacuum technology, the chemical company was able to help out in the shortage of disinfectants and support the preventive measures in the fight against COVID-19.

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.
