IFFA 2019 – experience innovative exhaust air technology live

To mark its 70th anniversary, IFFA 2019, the world’s largest trade fair for the meat industry, will be welcoming visitors from Germany and abroad to Frankfurt am Main from 4 to 9 May 2019.

As an expert for efficient exhaust air filter systems for various food fields, KMA Umwelttechnik will present the latest and most energy-efficient exhaust air purification processes for meat processing companies at IFFA.

KMA presents its latest KMA ULTRAVENT® 5000 exhaust air filter system at IFFA 2019. The system includes the award-winning KMA electrostatic precipitator cell and a heat recovery module, as well as a UV light and activated carbon filter module for odour elimination.

We inform you around the topics exhaust air cleaning, as well as compliance with the TA-Luft regulations and show you energy-efficient solutions for the exhaust air cleaning of your company. KMA exhaust air filters offer you a high separation efficiency with low energy consumption.

Compared to catalytic or thermal afterburning (TNV), KMA filters reduce energy consumption by more than 80 percent!

Combine the inspirational with the useful and visit us at our KMA stand: Hall 8.0 | Stand F 5. You don’t have an admission ticket yet? We would be happy to invite you and send you an admission voucher on request.

We are looking forward to your visit!

The efficient alternative to traditional post-combustion

Case Study: Industrial smoke houses in Italy

Industrial smokehouse in Italy

Industrial smokehouse in Italy

Exhaust air volume: exhaust air flow of 2.250 m3/h
The smoking plants are operated with a maximum exhaust air volume of 2.000 m3/h on 6 working days per week with a daily operating time of 16 hours.
Due to the high natural gas and power consumption the annual operating costs of a conventional post-combustion system (with heat recovery) would be about 53.600 €.
The enormous energy consumption lead to an annual CO2 emission of approx. 213 tons.

Lower energy consumption means lower costs

Lower energy consumption means lower costs

This is how the energy efficient KMA AAIRMAXX exhaust air filtration system for smokehouses functions:
1. The hot exhaust air from the smokehouses is collected in the collecting pipe.
2. Particles and aerosols are separated by the tubular electrostatic filter.
3. The gas scrubber separates all the gaseous components.
4. Then, the cleaned air can be directed outside (exhaust air mode).
Inside a frost-resistant housing the KMA AAIRMAXX Filter System is also suitable for outdoor installation.
Existing production plants can still continue to be used without modification.

Reduction of the energy consumption about more than 80%

Reduction of the energy consumption about more than 80%

- The KMA AAIRMAXX 2250 Filter System saves more than 80 % of the calculated annual operating costs for the post-combustion system (with heat recovery): 8.000 € operating costs in comparison to 53.600 €!
- The annual CO2 emissions of the smoke house are reduced to only about 11 tons (in comparison to 213 tons before the installation of the KMA Filter System). The reduction of more than 200 tonns of CO2 emission every year improves the carbon footprint of our client in a sustainable manner.
- Filtration of aerosols (smoke, mist, …)
- Automatic discharge of tar or grease
- Automatic filter cleaning system
- Low-wear operation
- Low energy consumption

Case Study for Frying Lines

Industrial frying lines and cooking ovens in Germany

Industrial frying lines and cooking ovens in Germany

Production plant for the production of meatballs in NRW, Germany
Exhaust air volume: exhaust air flow of 25.000 m3/h,
CO2 emission per year of more than 1.000 tons
Special challenge:
- Exhaust air mixture of oily and sticky emissions
- Strong polluted exhaust air
- Meat-processing factory is in the direct neighbourhood of a residential area

The alternative to expensive post-combustion

Energy efficient ULTRAVENT® hybrid filter system with heat recovery system, UV light tubes for odor removal and automatic filter cleaning system (CIP).
1. The exhaust air is purified from particles and aerosols by means of an electrostatic filter.
2. The heat exchanger extracts the heat containing in the filtered air flow and uses it for heating the fresh supply air.
3. In the last step the separation of odors takes place via a vacuum UV light system.

Reduction of the energy consumption about 80%

Reduction of the energy consumption about 80%

- 80% less energy consumption in comparison to a conventional post-combustion system
- The CO2 emissions of the frying line are reduced by more than 800 tonns per year which substaintially improves the carbon footprint of the company
- The KMA hybrid filter system is honored with the European Foodtech Award, Fleischerei Technik Award and further innovation awards
- The project is supported with funds made available under the Environmental Innovation Programme of the Federal Environment Ministry

Exhaust air filter systems for the meat processing industry

Clean Air. Save Energy. Use KMA filtration technology.

During the processing of meat, the emitted exhaust air is usually a mixture of smoke and intensive odours. The KMA ULTRAVENT® hybrid filter is an energy-efficient alternative to conventional afterburning systems. KMA ULTRAVENT® exhaust air filtration systems eliminate oil, grease and odours from the exhaust air and are used at various food processing industries.

KMA ULTRAVENT® hybrid filters purify the exhaust air in an innovative 2-step procedure while avoiding conventional and expensive post-combustion systems: in the first step the exhaust air is conducted into an electrostatic precipitator which assures a highly effective separation of aerosol particles such as oil. The second step is an odour abatement through UV light and an activated carbon filter. In case of significant heat energy in the exhaust air stream, KMA provides heat exchangers in order to transfer the recovered heat to another process – e. g. for heating of water.

The innovative exhaust air filtration system replaces conventional post-combustion systems and thus decreases the total energy consumption by up to 80%. This is an important improvement for the operational carbon footprint of manufacturing facilities.

The high eco-efficiency results from the interaction of various energy-efficient components:

  • Energy-saving electrostatic filter
  • UV-light and activated carbon filters for odour separation
  • High efficient heat recovery system, consisting of heat exchangers and heating pump
