Why the foundry Lößnitz has invested in modern filter technology?
The Lößnitz foundry has a long tradition, good customers, but, unfortunately, it has also had an increasingly dissatisfied neighbourhood. When casting the huge tools it manufactures, fine dust and unpleasant odours are also produced, which pollute the environment. The residents were fed up with finding greasy soot on their laundry, windowsills, cars and garden furniture, and were commonly bombarded with unpleasant odours. When a decision was made to expand production in 2014, it became clear that the burden on employees and the neighbourhood had to be massively reduced. Kappa then developed a tailor-made system that efficiently and economically separates fine dust, soot and odours.
The foundry is proud of it. The system is one-of-a-kind in Germany.
