A prime example of using the latest filtration technology is the newly built production hall for Kratzer in Offenburg, in which innovative filtration systems from LTA Lufttechnik were installed for the extraction of 21 emulsion machines and four oil machines.

Central extraction removes harmful particles between 0.001 and 100 μm from a wide range of machine tools such as lathes and grinding machines with oil and emulsion. Central filtration systems also maximise space and optimise maintenance. This individual solution means that Kratzer can achieve optimal air supply in their new hall. The 5000m2 production space is divided into three hall sections and includes the central filtration system. An additional filtration system cleans the exhaust from four oil machines in Hall 1. A blower with 16,000 m3/h power also ensures constant extraction via a piping system with an average length of around 150 meters.

An automatic volume flow control regulates each filtration system for maximum energy efficiency. The central extraction can then use a signal line to detect the operating status of the different machines and automatically set the ideal operating point by specifically regulating the blower and different butterfly valves. Florian Kratzer, Managing Director at Kratzer confirms, “We want to continuously improve the workplace and machine conditions.

With the new production hall, we have therefore opted for a central extraction system from LTA Lufttechnik because the entire package simply works for us.”

During the planning phase, LTA and Kratzer identified the most crucial aspects of this project: safety, seamless installation of the future-proof systems, and reliable service. With an innovative and sustainable concept, LTA Lufttechnik developed the perfect solution for this new production hall.
