THE CHALLENGE

Extraction systems for the plastics industry

While most plastic materials are generally considered harmless when cured, various hazardous materials can be released during their production and processing. Manual or mechanical processing, e.g. grinding, cutting or drilling, or conditioning, coating and printing during final production, can create undesired decomposition products and hazardous materials. Dusts, vapours and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are often released and need to be extracted and safely separated before they spread around the production hall and are deposited on the machines. Workers' health may be put at risk when they inhale these hazardous materials, because they harm their organs and respiratory tract.

How extraction systems are deployed in the plastics industry

 

Extraction and filtering systems for the plastics and rubber processing industry make it possible to meet environmental regulations and workplace exposure limits and to create an energy-efficient and clean work environment. In addition to ensuring the purity and quality of the raw materials and final products, they are an important contribution to occupational safety and health protection.

Herausforderungen bei der Arbeit mit Kunststoffen und Gummi

Die kunststofferzeugende Industrie ist ein wichtiger Zweig der chemischen Industrie. Zu unterscheiden ist dabei in die Kunststofferzeugung, Kunststoffverarbeitung und den Kunststoffmaschinenbau. Kunststoffe finden dabei in nahezu jeder Branche zur Anwendung, denn sie punkten durch geringes Gewicht, hohe Festigkeiten, Korrosionsbeständigkeit und vielfältige Einsatzmöglichkeiten. Die Kunststoffindustrie zeichnet sich daher durch eine hohe Innovationskraft und eine vielfältige Produktpalette aus.

Kunststoffe werden zu Formteilen, Halbzeugen, Fasern oder Folien weiterverarbeitet. Sie dienen als Verpackungsmaterialien, Textilfasern, Wärmedämmung, Rohre, Bodenbeläge, Bestandteile von Lacken, Klebstoffen und Kosmetika, in der Elektrotechnik als Material für Isolierungen, Leiterplatten, Gehäuse, im Fahrzeugbau als Material für Reifen, Polsterungen, Armaturenbretter, Benzintanks und vieles mehr.

THE ANSWER

NOVUS extraction solutions for plastics processing

NOVUS offers special systems across a broad range of capacities for extraction in the plastics industry. NOVUS generally recommends systems which extract and filter hazardous substances directly at the source of their emission. We distinguish between mobile and stationary systems. These systems offer perfect employee protection in combination with production hall air extraction. NOVUS devices are available both as explosion-proof and as non-ex versions.
