“Our volunteers suffer less from nasal complaints because of the reduction of fine dust. we experience a big difference in cleaning.”
Merel Pieneman, manager at Het Knaaghof
Dierenbescherming Het Knaaghof

Introduction Dierenbescherming Het Knaaghof

Since 2010, Dierenbescherming Het Knaaghof has been the rabbit and rodent shelter for the south-western animal welfare region. The shelter takes in around 600 rabbits and rodents every year. Rabbits and rodents are increasingly in need of shelter, often purchased on impulse and pushed aside when the care becomes too much.

 

The shelter’s managers work with volunteers and interns to provide care for the animals and to advise anyone considering offering a home to a rabbit or rodent. The staff have solid expertise and experience allowing them to offer sound advice and to assess an animal’s suitability for its potential new owner. Professionalism is a high priority for Dierenbescherming Het Knaaghof, and animal welfare always comes first.

 

The Challenge

“We’d clean in the afternoon and by the next morning, you’d think we hadn’t done anything. I really wanted to improve the indoor air, for staff and the animals.”

Volunteers at Dierenbescherming Het Knaaghof work together in close quarters. The shelter has 125 spaces for animals and if all are full, fine particulate quickly accumulates in the air. Manager Merel Pieneman explains: “We’d clean in the afternoon and by the next morning, you’d think we hadn’t done anything. I really wanted to improve the indoor air, for staff and the animals.”

Work environment

“Since we work with so much straw, hay and sawdust, we suffer greatly with fine particulate. The animals also shed hair and skin flakes. All of this hovers in the air,’ explains Merel Pieneman. Animals who are sheltered at Dierenbescherming Het Knaaghof enjoy steel and plexiglas accommodation bays during their stay. Professionalism is a high priority, and for Merel, it’s important to provide a pleasant working environment for volunteers and clean accommodation for the animals.

The Solution

“We now have our very own air cleaner and a visibly improved working environment!”

Merel Pieneman continues: “I went online to look for a fine particulate extraction system and stumbled upon Euromate. Advisor Marco Balkema was immediately enthusiastic about our shelter and gave us a lot of support in looking for the right solution. That instilled in me the confidence I needed and I started to put together a project application with an external foundation. Thanks to that and the allowance from Euromate, we now have our very own air cleaner and a visibly improved working environment!” The control box allows staff to adjust the mode themselves. During the day the air cleaner operates at a low, silent level and in the evening runs at a higher level for powerful cleaning.

Achieve favourable savings

  • Filters up to 90% of the contamination.
  • Customized solution for different pollution sources.
The Product

HF-Series

Euromate’s HFE unit is a very effective and efficient system for filtering dust particles. Even welding fumes and oily mist pose no problem for this system. The HFE system is built around an electrostatic filter and has an integrated fan.

  • A considerable reduction in malfunctions and costs associated with machine maintenance thanks to the removal of fine dust from the air.
  • A reduction in dust and rubber particles helps to create a pleasant and healthy working environment.
  • Energy-saving – dust, removed from the air through ventilation and conveyed outside, involves high energy costs thanks to heat loss and the need to reheat fresh air coming in. The HFE unit filters air according to the air-recirculation principle, whereby heated air is recirculated and can be conveyed back downwards. This helps to reduce heating costs.
  • Reusable electrostatic filters that can can be cleaned were preferred for reasons of environmental and cost awareness.
