Efficiency measure - exchange of air compressor (2018):

At our location in Reuthe, the existing Kaeser DSD 201 SFC air compressor will be replaced by an energy-efficient Kaeser DSD 205 SFC air compressor. The waste heat will be fed into the heating system of the production hall and office areas. Numerous innovations regarding the compressor block, compressor control and drive motor contribute to significant energy savings.

This measure will save 123.4 t of CO2 per year compared to the present system.

 

Efficiency measure - exchange of drying chambers (2018):

At our location in Leoben, the existing TK40-43 and 50-54 drying chambers will be replaced by type 1003 Mühlböck chambers. This is the best technology currently available, with low, specific thermal and electric power consumption levels.

Compared to drying chambers according to the current state of technology, the Mühlböck type 1003 drying chamber lines recuperate 100% of the waste heat generated during post-drying for the pre-drying process.

This measure saves energy. The CO2 savings of these measures amount to 4,551.60 t per year compared to the current status.

This project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund.

 

Efficiency measure - extension of the belt dryer to include heat recovery (2017/2018):

The existing belt dryer will be converted. Its efficiency will be increased by expanding the dryer with heat recovery over the existing dryer.

In this highly efficient dryer, the energy from the circulating air of the post-drying section (recuperation module) is used to heat up the fresh air in the pre-drying section (condensation module).

This measure saves energy. The CO2 savings of these measures amount to 7,152 t per year compared to the current status.

This project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund.

 

Efficiency measure - exchange of drying chambers (2016/2017):

At our location in Leoben, the existing TK6-16 drying chambers will be replaced by type 1003 Mühlböck chambers. This is the best technology currently available, with low, specific thermal and electric power consumption levels.

Compared to drying chambers according to the current state of technology, the Mühlböck type 1003 drying chamber lines recuperate 100% of the waste heat generated during post-drying for the pre-drying process.

This measure saves energy. The CO2 savings of these measures amount to 4,341 t per year compared to the current status.

This project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund.
