Less fine dust - less smell!
Nobody wants to have fine dust and odours around them. The foundry Lößnitz GmbH has invested 5 million euros to reduce emissions. The Kappa Ekon® filter system reduces energy consumption and residual dust by a good third. This improves the air around the factory premises. The work areas of the foundry hall are now also supplied with pre-conditioned air. Employees can also take a deep breath.

Nobody wants to have fine dust and odours around them. The foundry Lößnitz GmbH has invested 5 million euros to reduce emissions.
The Kappa Ekon® filter system reduces energy consumption and residual dust by a good third. This improves the air around the factory premises. The working areas of the foundry hall are now also supplied with preconditioned air. Employees can also take a deep breath.
The new filter system is based on precisely fitting modules that are prefabricated in the factory and assembled according to the Lego principle. Everything fits together perfectly and ensures that no leaks or malfunctions occur in the cleaning area. This is the only way to ensure that the air around the factory premises is really efficiently cleaned of odours and fine dust.
Gute air is important. For local residents and also for our employees. It is therefore a matter of course for us to invest in modern filter systems and to continue to reduce odour and fine dust pollution in the future.
Summary of the advantages benefits new system:
Significant reduction of the odour emissions from the foundry to the environment
Significant reduction of dust emissions from the foundry to the environment
improvement of the workplace situation / air quality in the foundry hall
5 million for better air and less fine dust pollution
The grey cast iron or nodular cast iron of tools for the automotive industry releases fine dust and separates corresponding odours. And in this context it is important to reduce emissions as far as possible. Gießerei Lößnitz GmbH has invested 5 million euros in an economical and future-oriented system of foundry dedusting and odour separation. This protects residents, employees and, of course, the environment from harmful emissions, fine dust and odours.
The exhaust air purification of the Kappa Ekon® filter system collects the emissions at 17 extraction points on the hall ceiling. The purified air is then blown off into the environment by a fan through a chimney 38 meters high.
In order to improve the fresh air in the working area, the preconditioned fresh air is transported to the workplace in the foundry hall. This supply air is heated by the recovered waste heat of the melting furnace.
In the core area of the plant, the new filter system is used for the separation of industrial dusts. The new filter system requires only half the space of conventional solutions and is capable of reducing the residual dust content by half. This reduces energy consumption by one third. Precisely fitting modules were prefabricated in the factory and then assembled on site. This prevents leaks and malfunctions.
The new filter system provides a flow-optimised air supply. The air supply and the air discharge are to be understood here as one overall concept. An efficient exhaust air purification system is installed upstream of the extracted fine dusts and gaseous substances with a precisely defined quantity of reactants. This binds the odour emissions in the entrained flow phase and also on the filter element itself. After this process, part of the adsorption additive already used, which still has a corresponding absorption capacity, can be recycled via the recycling plant and reintroduced into the raw gas stream. This saves disposal costs and protects the environment by reducing the consumption of fresh adsorbent.
And what is the result of this investment of 5 million euros for a new filtration system? The highest air quality far below the legal limits and the greatest possible economy and resource efficiency. And that in turn means good air for employees and local residents. Filtered from odours and fine dust using the latest technology.
