SMS group has replaced two existing plate-type filters with new Multi-Plate filters at Hydro Aluminium Rolled Products in Grevenbroich. The filters are used for the cleaning of rolling oil from aluminium foil production. The new filters of types MPF 3-13 and MPF 3-16 assure high efficiency in rolling oil cleaning.
During the supplier selection process, SMS group stood out not only thanks to its high-quality filter technology, but also thanks to its highly convincing conversion concept, capable of complying with the very tight project schedule, even under the challenging space conditions on site. After an installation time of only two weeks, both new filters were successfully put into operation. The limited space available on site called for the successfully preassembled and function-tested Multi-Plate filters to be dismantled again in parts at SMS group’s manufacturing facilities in Hilchenbach and shipped to Hydro in modules.
