"Employees need to be protected from fine particulate pollution."

Knorr-Bremse Introduction

Knorr Bremse GmbH, founded in 1905, equips vehicles for shortdistance use with highly developed products. Originally founded as a manufacturer of compressed-air brakes for passenger and freight trains. The Munich-based Knorr Bremse AG has been a major contributor to safety and efficiency on road and rail for more than 110 years.

 

The company is a world leader in brake system and is the leading provider of safety-critical subsystems for railway and commercial vehicles. Employing around 29,000 employees today, the company continues to grow its expertise at more than 100 sites in 30 countries, helping customers with safe and efficient solutions.

 

With a turnover of more than 6.6 billion Euros, the company is one of the most successful German industrial concerns.

The Challenge

"Employees also need to be protected from fine particulate pollution."

The production and assembly of highly sensitive, safety-critical products and solutions necessitates high levels of cleanliness. Employees also need to be protected from fine particulate pollution.

 

Working with ‘Knorr Bremse KB Kama’ of Naberezhnye Chelny, Tatarstan (Russian Federation), we have found a local solution to help the customer, as well as it employees, achieve a high level of process reliability.

Solution

"The extraction units also effectively filter out oil mist and cooling lubricant."

With ample experience in the field of clean production hall air, Euromate was able to meet the exacting requirements of Knorr Bremse with a bespoke solution. In consultation with the production specialists at KB KAMA, the air circulation in the production hall was stimulated by the Euromate extraction units suspended from the ceiling and then filtered with the air-recirculation principle without the need for additional pipes.

 

The extraction units from Euromate also help to reduce heat loss, thereby reducing heating costs. For effective filtering, the HF-units are also equipped with optional oil separators as pre-filters. The extraction units also effectively filter out oil mist and cooling lubricant. So what’s the benefit to the customer of our electric filters and oil separators? They can be reused, which makes them especially environmentally friendly. The units also require only minimal maintenance.

 

“We are delighted with the extraction systems from Euromate.” Mr. Manfred Kindermann, Managing Director, Knorr-Bremse KAMA “The extraction units are suspended from the ceiling and have achieved a considerable reduction in air pollutants. They can also be programmed as we require.”

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 significant reduction in the number of faults and reduced machinery maintenance costs thanks to removal of fine particulate from the air.
  • Reduced welding and grinding particulate helps provide a comfortable and healthy work environment.
  • Energy-saving – removing particulate from the air via a ventilation system and conveying it outside generates high costs on account of the loss of warm air and the need to heat fresh air coming from outside.
  • The HFE unit filters according to the recirculation principle where previously heated air circulates and can be conveyed downwards again, helping to reduce heating costs.
  • For environmental and cost reasons, the preference was for reusable, cleanable electrostatic filters.
