Dedusting machine in the moulding hall

Since December of 2006 a new technological milestone ensures even cleaner air in Donawitz.

In the moulding hall a modern dedusting machine was built. Thereby the development of dust could be reduced by 95 per cent in this area. With massive extraction units up to 700.000 cubic metres air per hour  are extracted and purified in filters. The results fall notably below the statutory threshold values.

The resulting iron oxyd dust is totally recycled. About 720 tons of dust per year are again fed into our production process.
