KMA is a solution provider for highly efficient smoke separation in the die casting industry. KMA ULTRAVENT air filter systems provide optimal smoke extraction and create clean air in the foundry. During the casting process often occur greasy, oily and pasty smokes, which can quickly clog the filter when using unsuitable filter material and thus could result in high follow-up and exchange costs.
With the modular ULTRAVENT® System KMA Umwelttechnik GmbH offers an exhaust air filtration system especially developed for the foundry, which allows due to its cleverly harmonized elements the exact adaptation of the filter system to the needs of the foundry. In this way, dust, smoke, but also sticky or greasy aerosols and various odours can be high efficiently filtered.
Systematic clean air.
KMA exhaust air filtration systems are characterised by a modular design, high filtration efficiency, long durablility and extreme low energy consumption. KMA filters reduce the energy demand for exhaust air purification up to 80 % and conserve the environment effectively.
Individual solutions for different requirements
The KMA ULTRAVENT® exhaust air filtration system is suitable for an operation in a circulating air as well as exhaust air mode. The question of which system is used, is decided by the individual needs of the company. The key is: Whether in the circulating air or exhaust air mode, KMA ULTRAVENT® filter systems reduce energy consumption for air purification in foundries by up to 80 percent.
Exhaust air mode with integrated heat recovery
If the filtered exhaust air is to be ducted into the open air the filter system can be expanded by a high efficient heat recovery system with integrated heat exchanger and if necessary with heat pump. The Filter System consists of demister and electrostatic filter. The electrostatic filter is really important in this case, because it ensures the high-grade separation of oily and greasy emissions as smoke, dust and mist and simultaneously the efficiency level of the heat exchanger. By means of the heat exchanger the energy is withdrawn from the warm exhaust air and transferred to the incoming ambient supply air.
Energy saving circulating mode
ULTRAVENT® exhaust air filtration systems permit the cleaning of the indoor waste air during the energy saving circulating air operation. This largely avoids the application of exhaust air ventilators and prevents high heat losses in winter. The total energy consumption of traditional air handling systems reduces by using ULTRAVENT® exhaust air filtration systems about up to 80 %.
ULTRAVENT® exhaust air filtration systems ensure clean air. Therefore, the building and the machines stay cleaner – maintenance and cleaning costs are reduced. As the filtered air can be mostly recirculated back into the production hall, the cleaning-intensive exhaust pipes to the outside can be avoided. At the same time, the heating costs for the building decrease clearly. For a die casting machine of medium size (800-900 to) the yearly CO2 emissions are reduced by about 25 tons due to saved heating energy.
