Here you will find an overview of selected experience reports from companies that have successfully managed to solve challenging extraction tasks.
Employing approximately 40 people, DKF Kloz manufactures and coats wire products. As a finalist for the Gipfelstürmer Award, the company is a recent recipient of a special commendation by the state government of Baden-Württemberg, having emerged as an environmentally responsible industry model. Keller Lufttechnik supported the success of their project. As experts for clean air, we engineered and installed an energy-efficient extraction system that enables clean air to be recirculated into the plant.
DOMO is a manufacturer of recycled plastic granulate at Arco in northern Italy. Unfortunately, outdated extraction and filtration systems did not match the company's green image. This has been addressed since DOMO opted to install CLEACOM from Keller Lufttechnik. The extraction process, in particular, on eleven extruder lines posed a significant challenge.
Vitakraft pet care GmbH & Co. KG produces branded pet food for small animals. An existing (third-party) filtration system at the Bremen plant was replaced in order to ensure continued compliance with explosion prevention directives and to avoid (further) explosions.
The machines to be extracted are designed to shred hay and package it in plastic bags for pet supplies. The dust should neither enter the plastic bag (end product) nor the disposal press.

Haas Metallguss, a company with a long tradition in Baden-Württemberg, is not only economically successful, but is also setting a positive example by reducing energy and resource consumption in production. The new eLine electrical separator from Keller Lufttechnik helps Jürgen and Dr. Michael Haas to achieve their goal.
Since January of 2017, KS Gleitlager GmbH of St. Leon-Rot has been operating a new dry extraction system for the cleaning and inspection lines of its steel/aluminum production. The goal was to replace their old wet scrubbers with an efficient, operator-and maintenance-friendly new system.
"Healthy and motivated employees are the foundation of our success," says Thomas Zeiträg of tool manufacturer Emil Arnold GmbH & Co. KG in Ostfildern near Stuttgart. First-class extraction technology to ensure clean air inside the manufacturing plant
is the primary goal for the company. Keller Lufttechnik has been their reliable partner in this effort for over ten years.
Aurora, manufacturer of plastic composites, transforms a dusty process into a clean one: Production manager Alexander Schweinle selected CLEACOM from Keller Lufttechnik - a customized solution for clean air in plastics production.
Persistent, hazardous smoke fumes in the air we breathe - it’s no longer a problem at the hardening factory of Sandvik Tooling Supply in Renningen near Stuttgart. Oil mist separators from Keller Lufttechnik in Kirchheim/Teck ensure clean air for the manufacturing
plant. In order to safeguard its air quality, the company, part of the Swedish engineering group Sandvik, invests in regular maintenance and professional cleaning of its extraction systems. To this end, it has completed a peace-of-mind service agreement with Keller Lufttechnik.
Schorr - a traditional company located near Stuttgart produces large plastics/metal components for the automotive / aviation
industry with a new Zimmermann Portal milling machine. Occasionally the machine releases dusts and chips, as well as oil mist. Keller Lufttechnik's extraction system with its practical combi-filter cartridges FLEXI-P is up to the task.
Martin Landwehr is head of maintenance at Schweizer Group, aluminum and die-casting specialist at D-Hattenhofen, located between Stuttgart and Ulm. The company has been using the Predictive Monitoring Service by Keller Lufttechnik for more than a year. In an interview with LUFTREIN editors, Martin Landwehr related his experiences.
Barely visible, but cutting-edge: Processing machines and air pollution control systems are interconnected, and transmit data to the company’s technical staf inside the production works at the new Festo technology plant. Continuous monitoring of multiple system parameters ensures optimal operation as well as far-sighted maintenance and servicing. Moreover, Festo acquired a new exhaust system and substantially improved their in-house air quality, achieving an investment in employee health.

Volvo Construction Equipment in Braås, Sweden was facing a hot summer: Before long, their painting system would be upgraded with
a new overspray filtration system. Volvo and Keller Lufttechnik assembled the complete RECLAIM separation system in a plant in
Kirchheim and put it into operation for preliminary testing.
Industry experts know that it has not been feasible to design wet separation systems in the plastics industry that are flexible enough for
the air flow to adapt to the number of currently required extrusion systems. Keller Lufttechnik was able to solve this issue. At Leuna, Keller designed a system capable of precisely that, thereby achieving substantial energy savings.
