THE CHALLENGE

There were large quantities of fine particulate at workplaces and on products at the ‘s-Gravenzande location. ‘The primary reason for seeking a solution is that we want to do all that we can to ensure that our employees can work in a healthy environment,’ explains Ronald van der Tang, Director of Operations at Royal Brinkman. Measurements were carried out to demonstrate that the quantity of fine particulate in the air was far above the standard. This manifested in the infamous ‘black nose’, and can be a hazard to health in the long term. Initially, they tried to resolve the fine particulate problem in a more standard way by cleaning more thoroughly with a sweeper and scrubbing machine. Other ways of reducing the fine particulate level also proved ineffective after accurate measures were carried out.

THE SOLUTION

Royal Brinkman made contact with Euromate, who they consider ‘the specialist’ in the field. On a reference visit, they became acquainted with the Dust Free Industrial (DFI) air cleaner.

In view of the significant reduction in fine particulate at the location, and the company’s complete satisfaction with the air cleaner, Royal Brinkman decided to get round the table with Euromate and seek some recommendations for their own site.

There are four units in Royal Brinkman’s distribution hall for a total area of 8000 m2 and one unit in the ADR goods storage area. ‘We’ve since had several filter changes and it’s shocking what gets filtered out of the air. The key was finding the right setting for the unit, and the frequency for changing the filters. But now we’ve worked that out, we are very happy with the result,’ explains Marnix van der Born, Logistics Manager at Royal Brinkman. Employees now have to suffer less ‘black nose’ thanks to the units, plus they are also experiencing less particulate settling on products in the warehouse.
