The German company VOORTMANN specializes in service and maintenance of business-critical industry functions such as control, compressed air and loading systems. At its facilities in Issum, 60 km outside Düsseldorf, VOORTMANN performs orbital welding to produce high-quality pipes and load arms for its customers. In 2020, they invested in a new extraction system from Fumex for their welding plant, which extends significantly further than standard solutions.

Demand-driven cleaning of the filter cartridges, with power pulse valves and aerodynamically designed deflectors, significantly increases the life of the filter media. The filter can be cleaned during operation or during cleaning cycles when not running. With air circulation in winter, the filtered air is fed back to the production hall, which significantly saves heating costs.

The smoke extraction system has a very low pressure drop and can be controlled as needed to extract smoke from production booths, reducing energy consumption and environmental impact.

The installation of the Fumex extraction system is just one of the many activities the German company has carried out. All employees are also trained in sustainable measures and energy saving. The overall sustainable concept from VOORTMANN has reduced the energy demand on the Issum site by 40%. It is a new way of doing business. Social responsibility will also become even more business critical in the coming years.

We are very proud to be part of their journey!
