The term forging press is the generic term for machines used for large-scale metal forming. Different areas of application require a different type of forging press, the most common types are open-die, drop forging as well as hydraulic presses. Depending on the application, forging presses can be specifically adapted in design and propulsion method in order to meet material or product requirements.
To protect the forging press and to improve material processing, companies apply lubricants and coolants during the forming process. Due to these emulsion and oil-containing agents, the forging process produces strong oil and emulsion mists. These oil and emulsion mists contain oily and pasty aerosols as well as very fine solid particles. As a result, the exhaust air stream is highly contaminated. To prevent the exhaust air from entering the working area, the environment or the production machines themselves, companies have to efficiently extract all impurities and contaminations using an exhaust air purification system. The high-performance exhaust air purification systems by KMA Umwelttechnik achieve a separation efficiency of more than 90% while keeping energy consumption low. Due to their modular design, KMA filtration systems can be equipped or retrofitted with a heat recovery system or the fully automatic KMA filter cleaning system (CIP).
In order to fit the filtration system to the production plant, KMA Umwelttechnik draws on more than 30 years of experience with exhaust air purification in various industries. This process results in energy-efficient exhaust air purification systems fitting seamlessly into existing production plants and ensuring high pure air quality.
