Energy efficiency is today’s buzzword, in all countries across all industry sectors.
The Australian Government’s Clean Energy Future sets to cut pollution by at least 5% compared with 2000 levels by 2020, which will require cutting net expected pollution by at least 23% in 2020. The Australian Government has also committed to a long-term target to cut pollution by 80% below 2000 levels by 2050.
Similarly, by adopting the Kyoto Protocol, the European Union has undertaken to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 20% by 2020. To achieve this climate goal, the EU adopted the the ErP Directive (Energy-related Products Directive). This new directive helps with studying the savings potential of numerous energy-related products and stipulating minimum requirements.
These new regulations mean that up to 50% of existing electrical fans will need to be upgraded. Limits for fans were defined in June 2010 and are valid now.
Fans are used in many areas of manufacturing and in many in-design products, so the EU changes could be long-lasting in cutting CO2 emissions – not only in Europe but also in other countries like Australia. Machine tool-based mist extractors use fans and therefore will be subject to these new directives. REVEN GmbH can deliver from now on all of its air cleaners with fans and motors that already fulfil the ErP directive. All of these air cleaners, also known as mist extractors, now wear the green ErP ready sticker.
Dimac Tooling, Mulgrave, VIC, offers the German-made REVEN Recojet oil mist separators Ultra Cleaners and Rejet-A air cleaners, which are highly efficient mechanical air filtering units using the mechanical separating system X-Cyclone. Air pollutants and contaminants from oil, emulsions and other fluids are separated from the ambient air as aerosols to a very high extent.
Many manufacturers in Australia benefit from Reven products because they require almost no maintenance and low power consumption.
The new extreme energy efficient ErP version comes with much more updates and improvements:
- The motor has been moved outside of the air stream, which leads to a higher lifetime for the motors.
- The ErP version comes with a much more compact door design, therefore the door is now more resistant and is oil- and water proof.
- The fan housing is completely welded and therefore now 100% oil- and water proof.
