What does an extraction system do?
The exhaust system is one of the solutions for the disposal of waste products in production. However, these systems have even more functions than the mere disposal of residual materials.
For example, these systems clean the air at the same time. You can also use them for separating and separating material. For this reason, they are also referred to as extraction and filtration systems. In the following, you will learn more about the mode of operation as well as the extraction systems of Hunkeler Systeme AG.
How is waste transported within the extraction plant?
ZuOne of the central tasks of extraction and filtration plants is the transport of residual substances. The plants remove unwanted substances directly at the source. This can be the production or the area of packaging.
There are various technical solutions for this. In particular, extraction and filter systems with negative pressure or pneumatic conveying are used. With this technology, it is possible to extract waste products with high effectiveness directly at the point of origin. The functional principle of Hunkeler’s extraction and filtering units is made clear in this video.
This solution shows its advantages especially with dust and small particles. Thus, extraction systems prevent polluted air from escaping from the system. At the same time, the systems remove dust and similar material before they contaminate the air and production areas.
The plant transports the particles via the vacuum in the line system. On the one hand, the vacuum results in a very high transport speed. On the other hand, particularly compact systems can be realized in this way.
What are the advantages of an extraction system over other solutions?
Various solutions are suitable for the disposal of residual materials in production. A belt system is often used. However, it has significant limitations and disadvantages compared to an extraction system.
Conveyor systems, for example, score particularly well in terms of cost. Extraction systems, on the other hand, are more space-saving, more flexible and improve production characteristics. The central advantages of an extraction system are:
- very space-saving due to ceiling mounting
- thanks to the pipe system, space in the production area is freed up for machines
- very space-saving due to ceiling mount
- highly flexible solution that can be converted with little effort
- improves the performance of the production equipment
- reduction of manpower required for waste disposal
