Energy optimization at Coloplast reduces CO2 emissions by 230 tonnes per year

Coloplast develops and manufactures products for the urology area, the supply of ostomy, continence care and for wound and skin care. Coloplast operates around the world, employs more than 7,000 employees and is listed on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange.

For many years Coloplast works closely with Munters in creating optimal climatic conditions in cleanroom production together men. With the steady progress in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption has helped to optimize energy efficiency in Coloplasts Danish Munters systems.

The performance of two MX-Munters dehumidification systems, both accurately controlled dry air for clean rooms in the production provide tion processes, has been thoroughly analyzed. Together with Helge Jensen, the specialist for energy at Coloplast, Munters has then created a plan for energy optimization. Both dehumidifiers are equipped with a pre-cooler, the air flow to a water content cools down from 5 g / kg. Ler with a bypass and a Nachküh- provide both air systems with 15 ° C / 15% RH (Water content 1.5 g / kg).

The energy optimization consists of:

• Installation of the Munters Energy Recovery Purge® - a system for energy recovery, waste heat from the hottest part of the rotor collects and uses to support regeneration. This reduces the energy required and the exit temperature of the product process air and leads to lower energy costs for post cooling.

• Frequency of the supply fans were the main air-wet mounted and control units depending on channel pressure / Dehumidification. Since some manufacturing facilities do not work continuously, the need for drying air is different. By installing louvers and frequency converters to the dehumidification units can be automatically adapted to the actual required amount of dry air.
