Huge savings by upgrading old Oil Mist Extraction units

Immense savings potential by replacing old centrifugal oil mist separators, which is also supported by many funding programs!

Rentschler Reven GmbH has recently been involved in more and more upgrade projects for replacing old inefficient centrifugal oil mist separators (centrifuges). For example, at AES Seal Plc from England, at GKN Driveline from Spain and other manufacturers in Northern Germany, where more than 100 REVEN X-CYCLONE RJ and C series air cleaners have recently been installed to replace inefficient centrifuges.

The newly installed X-CYCLONE air cleaners meet the new ErP ecodesign guideline and the requirements of the Industry 4.0 guidelines for both electronic motors and electronic fans and so these oil mist separators save the above-mentioned companies a six-digit euro amount in electricity costs every year. Furthermore, the previously installed old-fashioned centrifuges generated additional costs of several thousand euros every year, in service and replacement filters, and lost suction performance relatively quickly, as the filter technology used does not allow a constant suction volume.

The above examples were part of large refurbishment and energy efficiency programs that KfW Mittelstandsbank specifically supports with large funding programs in Germany.

An air cleaner – oil mist separator renovation measure carried out by Rentschler REVEN GmbH proceeded as follows: It took more than 6 months for the existing old centrifuges to record all consumption data, such as electricity, replacement filters and cleaning effort and to evaluate them together with the customer. This was followed by a 6-month test phase that was used to test the REVEN X-CYCLONE RJ and C series. In this test phase, the customer and the Reven technicians meticulously documented and evaluated the exact power consumption as well as the cleaning and maintenance costs of our devices. The result was so positive that within a few days, after this test phase, the customer made the decision to replace all old centrifuges with new, modern air cleaner / oil mist separators from REVEN.

Convince yourself of the air purity and cleanliness in the production halls of AES Seal here on the following pictures, that their production shows after an oil mist separator refurbishment:
