When it came to extracting the shavings and dust mixture produced during wood processing, the SEPAS-PLUS system was the only option on the table for this type of production. Thanks to its ability to adapt the air volume and power consumption automatically – depending on whether the processing machines in production are working simultaneously – this patented system offers outstanding energy-efficiency. This means that energy consumption is continually optimised and maintained at a low overall level. The familiar single-pipe system, to which machines are connected individually, offers the utmost flexibility. In the future, too, it will be possible to make adaptations at the extraction system with hardly any effort. And there is nothing to stop ATOMIC productivity rising even further – a unique benefit of the Scheuch SEPAS-PLUS system.The exhaust air that is purified in the LIGNO filter with ETAmax unit to a residual dust content of max. 0.1 mg/Nm³ is recycled by a return air system in order to recover the heat. Depending on the outside temperature, it is possible to regulate the exhaust air/return air between 0 and 100%, and blow it into the factory hall through a special blow-out duct with no draughts. It is also possible to use the system only occasionally. During warm periods too, some of the thermal energy is recovered by installed heat exchangers (CAV systems).
