Our company’s moto is to provide only environmentally-friendly solutions. Our technological equipment meets all environmental standards set by the European legislation concerning environmental protection. We enable our customers to use equipment in a manner which protects the health of employees and does not pollute the environment. We pay special attention to the environmental protection at a very early stage of designing technological equipment and processes.
The planning process includes four key points:
- Reduction of the impact of technological processes on the environment;
- Reduction, recycling and avoidance of waste;
- Saving in resources (paint, chemicals, energy);
- Use of technology to ensure the largest savings and smallest pollution of the environment, a BAT approach (Best Available Technology).
The technological equipment for the surface protection of materials includes waste water and air purification, as well as heat recovery devices.
Preparation and treatment of process water
The main sources of waste water in a paint plant are primarily workpiece pre-treatment devices. The first step to the reduction of environmental exposure to chemicals is the use of cascading system in pre-treatment devices, which enables a use of smaller quantities of chemical additives. Waters used for degreasing and pre-treatment of workpiece surfaces are polluted with degreasing agents and heavy metals, and are treated in purification devices before being discharged into the environment. The purification devices used for this purpose are adjusted to specific technological process and enable an exceptionally high level of purification. The water at the outlet meets all standards concerning discharge into the sewage system.
Energy recuperation and air purification systems
Paint plants are extremely large consumers of heat, which is used for heating of the air and drying of protective coatings. Vast amounts of heat are discharged into the environment through the exhaust air. The most efficient method of heat waste reduction is the use of heat recuperators of reputable world manufacturers which ensure up to 75% heat savings. The reduction in the heat requirement results in a reduced amount of environmental smoke pollution.
Air extracted from paint plants and discharged into the environment is often polluted with solid particles (powder painting) or solvents (synthetic paint spraying). Using high quality filter materials, the amount of solid particles discharged into the environment can be reduced to the minimum. Solvents which escape during the painting process using synthetic paint are extracted from exhaust air by means of carbon filters. In larger paint plants the technology of waste air burning is used (TNV).
