Looking back to a successfull trade fair

ACHEMA is the top global trade fair for the process industry, held every three years in Frankfurt am Main. From June 10th to 14th, 2024, it again was be the place to be for all things process industry technology and services. Piller Blowers & Compressors GmbH was there again: at booth G 65 in Hall 4.0.

It was a pleasure to introduce our latest innovations for the VapoFan:

  • the PILLER VapoStation, our new solution for serial connected VapoFans in mechanical vapor recompression (MVR) applications
  • the powerful 160 KW motor - providing extended performance and additional application areas

Showcasing innovations based on the VapoFan

The PILLER VapoStation: a serial connect system for MVR applications


"The VapoStation makes it possible to implement a serial connect system in MVR applications with VapoFans in a much more compact, modular design," says Gunther Röllgen, Head of Product Management at PILLER. "Plus, the VapoFans are arranged on a consistent horizontal level, and the system as a whole is only 2.5 m tall."

The new VapoStation design combines the reliable performance, high efficiency, and extensive performance range of the VapoFan with a smaller footprint for our serial connect applications and optimized access for maintenance and service. Plus, the base frame and connecting pipes with flexible joints are included in the scope of supply of a PILLER VapoStation.


Extended range of performance with a new 160 KW motor

As a steam compressor, the VapoFan can be used as a modular solution for low mass flows with the new motor type for applications with mass flows of up to 9,000 kg/h. With a new 160 KW motor, PILLER is expanding the performance range of the VapoFan.
The expansion of the VapoFan’s range of services is a direct response to numerous customer inquiries from various industries and thus to specific market requirements,” says Dr. Steffen Kuberczyk, Chief Sales Officer at PILLER.

All PILLER VapoFans, with motors in the power levels 37, 55, 90 and 160 KW, are driven by a VFD with up to 13,500 rpm. They are great for installing a compact evaporator system, being small, easy to install, and providing new capabilities for energy and cost savings.

ACHEMA Congress

On June 10th, Dr. Gregor Schumm, Head of Process Engineering, gave a lecture titled "Options and Limits with PILLER Blower and Compressor Technology" as part of the overarching session “Heat integration in process industry through mechanical vapour recompression – WindaB”.
