At Itac we are always looking to find ways to drive down costs and make savings that we can pass on to our customers.
Last year we invested in the installation of a stainless steel auto-line self cleaning filter, on a machine that regularly produces an advanced coating for a leading international manufacturing company within the packaging industry.
The new filter was manufactured by Heco, it provides an initial buffer which removes particulates prior to further filtration through two disposable filters within the filtration unit.
The filter has had a number of benefits. As well as lowering operating costs, it has reduced the number of disposable filters needed and in turn the number of filter changes required. This has resulted in an increased yield as the solution is now filtered and retained within the batch. Overall savings are dramatic.
