Founded in 1926, Tollpost Globe AS (Oslo, Norway) has a long history as a supplier of transport and logistic services. Currently it is owned by the Swedish post (Posten AB) and Danish post (Post Danmark A/S) who merged in February 2009. With a turnover of 2.4 billion NOK (approx. € 270 million), employing 970 people of which 700 drivers and handling 60.000 boxes per day, they are one of Norway’s leading suppliers of transport and logistics solutions and of cross-border parcel and pallet services to and from Norway. Within Norway there are 29 logistic centres providing a national coverage. The main office is located in Oslo which is being expanded with a new terminal.

THE CHALLENGE

Airborne micro particles of dust produced by paper and cardboard boxes – but also rubber particles from transportation belts and truck wheels – are typically found at terminals, post handling centres, warehouses, paper recycling companies, and logistic centres such as at Tollpost Globe AS in Norway. Dust (in particular by that from paper and cardboard boxes) inhaled by employees and settling down on machinery causes health problems and damages machinery. Dust settles on cameras, optical sensors, and computers causing increased maintenance and cleaning which is very expensive. It is important to remove as much dust from the air as possible before it settles down or is inhaled. Euromiljø (our Norwegian distributor) concluded that the HFE industrial air cleaners of Euromate are perfect to solve this problem.

THE SOLUTION

To collect as much dust as possible, four HFE-50 units were installed at the main logistic centre of Tollpost at 6m height hanging 2m from the ceiling. This was a test installation for a period of four weeks. After this period a heavy reduction of dust was noticed and hardly any maintenance was needed. The filters were removed and weighed, the result was remarkable. Each filter collected 500 grams of dust (airborne and rubber micro particles). The outcome was so satisfying that Tollpost ordered 26 HFE units to be installed at their new terminal. The objective is to filter 26 kg dust per month. Every two months service and maintenance will take place. Mister Trond: “After installation, the problems we had were reduced heavily.”

“After installation, the problems we had were reduced heavily.”

“The HFE unit combines everything we want, it does the job, is environmental-friendly, and saves energy!”

Mr. Trond Trehjørningen, Technical Manager

HFE-50

Euromate offers the HFE unit, a very effective and efficient system for filtering dust particles. Even welding fumes and oil mists cause no problem for this system. The HFE unit is built around an electrostatic filter and has an integrated fan.

Features of the HFE:
• Huge reduction in malfunctioning and in the cost of maintenance of machinery, as airborne micro particles are being removed.
• Reduction of dust and rubber particles, creating a pleasant and ealthy work environment (no more annoying ‘black noses’).
• Energy-saving; removing dust from the air by ventilation only leads to high cost of energy heating up fresh air conceived by ventilation units from outside replacing the polluted heated air inside. The HFE unit circulates the filtered, already heated air, levelling out the difference in temperature between floor and ceiling.
• The reusable and cleanable electrostatic filters were preferred to disposable filters, because of an environmental point of view and cost awareness.
