The clean workplace

Environmental protection means protecting the world we live in and safeguarding people at their workplaces against dust, gas, smoke, vapours, odours, and noise. Environmental protection is becoming increasingly important, and thus the technology, which requires and enables it at the same time, is gaining in importance as well. The air technology is an important part of this environmental technology, which has to meet important requirements in the production and processing technology.

In the modern world, extraction systems in their diverse forms and modes of operation are taken for granted. Dry or wet extraction removes all pollutants that come up in production as material residues in dust form and are harmful to humans and their environment. Machine extraction within process technology prevents the emission of hazardous substances or heat into the work environment. Centralized or decentralized welding-smoke or soldering-station extraction systems ensure the direct extraction of pollutants at work places.

We distinguish among various extraction systems. They are available in combination with heat recovery systems, mechanical or electrostatic filters, fully automated hose filter systems or biofilters. The exhaust air purification by means of biological filter systems is the most environmentally friendly technology for the removal of solvent-borne exhaust air and odour-intensive pollutants. Problems are not shifted but solved. The fields where biological processes can be applied range from the chemical industry through solvent processing plants onto the removal of odours in other areas.

Biofilter principle  
It is based on the ability of microorganisms to microbially turn pollutants in the exhaust air into non-toxic substances, such as carbon dioxide, biomass, and water.

Some specific application examples of our solutions: 

  • Welding and gluing tables with extraction 
  • Wet separators/air washers
  • Secondary oil cleaners
  • Exhaust systems for the maintenance of car workshops and test stands for combustion engines
  • Fully automatic hose filter systems
  • Semi-automatic vibrating filters
  • Electrostatic filters
  • Cyclone separation
  • Extraction arms and cranes
  • Work chambers and work tables with extraction and sound insulation
  • Extraction walls for centralized extraction
  • Mobile extraction systems
  • Paint-spray booths for surface technology

Where can we find good and healthy air? 
Good air is not only a question of definition but also that of location. The purest air on earth is certainly found in the areas of the North and South Poles as well as far out on the oceans. For example, only very low dust masses of about 0.1 g/m3 can be measured in the air there. Dust loads increase to 5 to 20 g/m3 in rural areas and health resorts and reach 20 to 40 g/m3 in small towns and 50 to 200 g/m3 in large cities. On top of it, there are gaseous air pollutants from road traffic, house fires and industrial production plants, which can partly be accumulated in airborne dust.

Units for illustration:
1 mg = 0,001 g 1 g = 0,000 001 g
