New ventilation system makes Volvo’s production faster

Volvo Buses is one of the world’s largest bus manufacturers. With quality, safety and the environment as their core values, the company wants to develop innovative solutions that move both the industry and society forward and which help make everyday life easier for people and cities – today and tomorrow.

In order to achieve their ambitions, Volvo needs to take the core values into consideration in everything the company does. Everything from product development and manufacturing to the actual products and services.

When the company wanted to expand their ventilation system in order to maintain the same high quality in their production environment, they chose Fumex.
The solution was CFE dust filters connected in parallel for really large airflows where particles and welding fumes are efficiently eliminated from an air volume of up to 25,000 m³/h per unit. It also features on-demand cleaning of the filter cartridges through efficient power pulse valves. This means that the filters also can be cleaned during operation or through predefined cleaning cycles when the unit is not in operation.

The units were also connected to a heat exchanger in order to efficiently utilise the warm excess heat from the premises.

Tomas Wallström, Quality Manager at Volvo Buses:
− “We were very pleased with the results of the new facility. Everything from function and maintenance to the cleaner working environment in our premises.”
