CRAWLEY, WEST SUSSEX, UK. (07 October 2013) — Edwards Group Limited (NASDAQ: EVAC), a leading manufacturer of sophisticated vacuum products and abatement systems and a global provider of related value-added services, is exhibiting at the 69th Heat Treatment Congress, 9th-11th October, Rhein-Main-Hallen, Wiesbaden, Germany.

Visitors to the show will be able to meet with experts from Edwards and discuss customised solutions to their vacuum technology questions, using a variety of choices from Edwards’ portfolio of innovative products. 

Visitors can see the robust GXS dry screw industrial pump in action on the Edwards’ booth. With advanced temperature control, low maintenance and long service intervals, the compact and highly intelligent GXS is Edwards’ most robust and economical vacuum pump for industrial applications with pumping speeds from 160 m3/hr to 3450 m3/hr.  The GXS vacuum pump uses patented screw technology to deliver high vacuum performance and increased capacity from a smaller sized pump.  It enables users to optimise their processes, resulting in a low cost of ownership.

The GXS offers increased speeds at lower pressures, low ultimate vacuum, and allows users to minimize their environmental footprint as it has low gas and power consumption.   It has low vibration and noise levels of less than 64 dB(a), which extends bearing life and the GXS design features mean it has a service interval of up to 5 years without user intervention.

“We are delighted to be attending the 69th Heat Treatment Congress. Edwards is at the forefront of vacuum for all heat treatment applications, providing high quality, reliable and cost effective vacuum solutions, with reduced environmental impact” commented Dr Simon Bruce, Market Sector Manager, Industrial sector, Edwards Europe. 

A new series of videos describing the GXS features, benefits, design and operation is now available online: www.edwardsvacuum.com/gxs/video_en.htm
