Heat recovery and exhaust air purification at melting furnaces Energy efficiency is the foundation for the competitiveness of foundries. In addition to reducing CO2 emissions, energy efficiency enables significant cost savings and decoupling from rising energy prices and impending supply bottlenecks. As an expert in energy-efficient exhaust air management and heat recovery in foundries, KMA Umwelttechnik presents its latest development activities here.

Ultravent-System für Abluftreinigung und Wärmerückgewinnung
As an expert in energy-efficient exhaust air management and heat recovery in foundries, KMA Umwelttechnik presents its latest development activities in this article. The company is currently implementing new solutions for exhaust air purification and heat recovery at melting furnaces for several companies.
The Ultravent system offers an integrated solution for exhaust air purification and heat recovery with a small footprint: For an exhaust air volume of 20 000 m³/h, the system has a "footprint" of approx. 2 x 3 m. The Ultravent system is designed for the use in foundries.
KMA Umwelttechnik is an owner-managed family enterprise, which had been established in 1959 by Josef Kurtsiefer as a metal processing company. In the beginnings the company concentrated on the production of doors, gates and metal facades. But in the 1970s followed soon the change to the plant construction.
The emerging laws for the environmental protection have led to the specialization in exhaust air filtration systems for the food industry. In the course of the company´s extension KMA expanded its delivery program to additional application areas as for example metal industry, foundries, textile industry and further industrial areas for use.
