Air filter systems for food processing industry and pharmaceutical manufacturer

Clean air. Save energy.

KMA produces exhaust air filtration systems for many application areas in the food processing industry. The development focus of our engineers and process technicians has always been sustainability and efficiency. The result: KMA exhaust air filtration systems usually need about 80 % less energy than conventional afterburning systems!

In addition to exhaust air solutions for industrial frying, smokehouses and spray dryers, KMA offers tailor-made systems for drying systems and roasting plants. The systems clean the exhaust air from the drying and roasting of food and pet food. In addition to exhaust air purification, modules for heat recovery and odor removal are available. Drying fruits such as apples or bananas, hops, herbs, spices, tomatoes or onions are dried in drying plants; in roasteries nuts or cocoa.

Less energy consumption means less costs.

“KMA exhaust air filtration systems will be self-financing after a short time due to the saved energy costs.”

KMA Umwelttechnik stands for quality and innovation. This is proven every day by more than 3.000 air filter systems installed world-wide.

Their application allows the prevention of environmental pollution and makes an important contribution to the climate protection.

Application areas of the energy-efficient KMA exhaust air filtration systems in the food processing:

  • Frying / baking machines
  • Meat and fish smokehouses (any type)
  • Baking systems and ovens
  • Cocoa and nut roasting
  • Commercial kitchens, canning factories
  • Animal breeding and fattening farm
Compared to thermal afterburning, the energy consumption when using a KMA exhaust air filtration system is reduced by more than 80%.

The Greek letter Eta (Ƞ) used in the physics as a symbol for efficiency. Efficient industrial environmental protection is the consequently used synergy effect resulting from the combination of maximal efficiency and minimal energy consumption.

Active environmental protection, that pays off

Clean air. Save energy.

In the food production the exhaust air filter technology, besides the cooling technology, dispose of the highest potential reduction in CO2 levels. Because traditional catalytic or thermic afterburning systems need for exhaust air purification large amounts of gas, oil or electric energy. The high energy consumption is accompanied by the corresponding emission of CO2.

KMA delivers the energy-efficient solution:

KMA offers with the two exhaust air filtration systems AAIRMAXX® Smoke Filter and ULTRAVENT® Hybrid filter, which combine the high clean air quality with profitability and eco-efficiency and fits to any food processing machine.

The advantages at a glance!

KMA exhaust air filter systems suit every production process
Regardless of whether you are frying, roasting, baking, smoking or drying: With KMA AAIRMAXX® and KMA ULTRAVENT® you will master any problem caused by waste air and you remain free to choose the production process.
Renovating old plants with KMA exhaust air filter systems
KMA exhaust air filtration systems have zero negative impact on processes taking place during production. Existing production plants are able to continue operation without modifying their original design and will in turn meet the requirements of the TA-Luft* regulations. The advantage: established food products maintain their former manufacturing technique and 100% of their aroma, flavour and taste characteristics.
The operating costs of a KMA exhaust air filtration system are considerably low
KMA exhaust air filtration systems use the most advanced, most cost-effective method for waste air purification by combining the techniques of electrostatic precipitators with gas scrubbers. In comparison to conventional methods of post-combustion, energy costs are decreased by up to 80 percent.
High filtration efficiency
KMA exhaust air filtration systems ensure compliance with the emission limit values according to the TA-Luft* regulations and the VDI** directives. KMA systems are designed according to the high requirements of the German legislation relating to workplace safety (BG) and Federal Imission Control Act (BlmSchG).
Operation almost free from wear
KMA exhaust air filtration systems are not vulnerable to thermal wear. More than 3,000 systems installed in numerous manufacturing works - some with over 50,000 hours of operation - prove this in a striking manner.
Automatic filter cleaning: Unmatched in comfort
The highly effective automatic filter washing system ensures regular cleaning of the modules, thus ensuring the longevity of the filter modules and low-maintenance operation.

Did you know?

KMA exhaust air filtration systems permit centralized and decentralized extraction concepts. Which particular solution is ideal for each specific case depends on the characteristics of the production faciltities: for example exhaust air volume, space and distances between the processing systems.
