CASE STUDY NAME
Stenter Exhaust Filtration
Case Study Facts
Requirements and Challenges
The company, AKDEM, is producing various types of fabrics: Fabrics made of natural fibers up to fabrics made of synthetic fibers or so-called chemical fibres. During this fabric production, a heat treatment is carried out in order to provide different physical properties to the fabric.
This heat treatment is done at AKDEM, in Brückner Stenter frames. The operating temperature of the Brückner Stenter frame can reach up to 210°C, or even higher depending on the fabric type.
On the exhaust outlet of the stenter frame, there is a high amount of smoke, wax and mist, which creates severe odor-intensive problem around the production plant. Therefore, AKDEM was looking for a filter unit to solve this exhaust gas problem.
