Sustainability Strategic Partners for Aluminum Recycling in the International Foundry
OMAR, which is already a partner of ALUMIL for the supply of fumes and pollutants extraction systems coming from melting processes, has recently built a new fumes extraction and filtration system for one of the Group's factory and, through its ITR Recycling Technologies, division, has also provided for a new recycling plant for scraps and aluminum profiles.
The forty years of experience of OMAR group in the foundry sector have awarded the Treviso company again.
In one of its European factories, the ALUMIL group needed to carry out an accurate analysis of its system for the extraction and filtration of fumes, coming from the furnace loading and slagging, in order to find solutions that aimed to improve its performance further. The customer therefore asked OMAR to verify the existing situation and to propose a modernization, in order to eliminate any possible risk for the health of its personnel, and the environmental pollution.
OMAR, following an accurate analysis of the variables and the risks involved, has redesigned, built and installed an effective system for extraction and abatement of the fumes and for the neutralization of the acid pollutants coming from the fusion of recycled material. The high filtration efficiency is ensured by the use of specific filter media installed in a PJ dynamic system, equipped with an automatic cleaning system. Particular attention was paid to the safety of the system, providing for a pre-abatement system for any incandescent entrainment, and the installation of ATEX certified components, according to the belonging area. The new system currently works non-stop 24h/day with an airflow of 100.000m3/h and a dusty flow at 160 ° C.
Satisfied with the construction and the service of OMAR group, simultaneously with this intervention, ALUMIL Group has relied on OMAR's ITR Recycling Technologies division, for the acquisition of its new treatment system for aluminum profiles scrap, in order to reintroduce it in their own manufacturing processes.
The aluminum scraps treatment system is equipped with a special dusts extraction and filtration system that helps to ensure the highest quality of the aluminum fractions, which have been recycled and sent back to new life.
The installed system was appreciated by the customer for its efficiency levels, versatility and maximum flexibility of use, as well as for its simplicity and affordability of maintenance operations. The integrated, simple and absolutely intuitive management of the machines and of the system takes place via touch panel and working programs that can be memorized, according to the type of treated material. The control system was created and customized ad hoc by the software engineers of Treviso company. All of this can be perfectly integrated into 4.0 intelligent factory systems.
Finally, it is important to underline that this is a new custom-made realization, which has been created according to the specific needs of the customer, and that qualifies OMAR Air Filtration Systems and ITR Recycling Technologies as specialist partners of the foundry industry.
