“During the last scheduled maintenance I was shocked by the amount of dust. The filters really do their job well!”

Originally from Spain, Tolsa is an organisation that focuses on providing innovative solutions that contribute to improving the competitiveness of their customers around the world. With offices in Africa, Asia, America and Europe, Tolsa has a global reach. The Industry business unit produces products such as paint, asphalt, absorbents and purification products.

The Consumer business unit is Europe’s largest manufacturer of pet-hygiene products, which is sold under both their own brands and those of other companies.

The Challenge

"The process produces large amounts of dust, which settles on the floor and machines."

Tolsa Nederland BV, based in Vlaardingen, is the production company that packages and distributes all kinds of cat litters in various sizes. This process produces large amounts of dust, which settles on the floor and machines. Activity in the production hall, such as forklifts driving back and forth, lifts the dust back into the air. The result is poor air quality for the employees who inhale this dust, which is harmful to the health. At the same time it also has a detrimental effect on the operation of the machines. This naturally increases equipment downtime, which results in the loss of valuable time. The extractors at the machines proved inadequate to the task, so the company began looking for a suitable solution to reduce the dust in the hall.

The Solution

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

The advisor from Euromate, conducted a professional air measurement, which showed that the dust concentration was too high. Tolsa has a large production area and a warehouse. To achieve improved air quality everywhere, Euromate installed five HFE-50 air cleaners with bag filter to keep the dust pollution to a minimum. Mr. Leo Don: “There were two reasons we decided to have the new air cleaners installed: the health of employees and the protection of our machines. We have seen a significant improvement. Naturally we also have to keep the hall and floor well cleaned to achieve optimal results.”

Maintenance and expansion

"A great cooperation."

Tolsa also plans to have these air cleaners installed at the locations in France and then Spain. Mr. Leo Don: “Given our activities and the amounts of dust, we want to be certain the unit is kept in peak operating condition. Therefore we also concluded a maintenance contract. We are given ample notice before they come, so we can have the high worker ready and waiting. That’s what I call great cooperation!”

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.
