Successful Premiere for Exhaust Air Purification System in the Printing Industry by Jenoptik.

The Lasers & Material Processing division of Jenoptik presented at the “K” trade fair for plastics and rubber in October 2013 its new system KATASORB® PRINT. It increases the energy efficiency and lowers the operating costs of printing machines.

With the system KATASORB® PRINT, Jenoptik extended its product spectrum for exhaust air purification. Presented for the first time in Düsseldorf, Germany, this system was designed especially for the printing industry: Direct incorporation in printing machines lowers the operating costs of a printing facility and increases the energy efficiency. With KATASORB® PRINT, Jenoptik addresses manufacturers of printing machines and printing houses who want to reach significant savings in their TCO (total cost of ownership). The system can directly be integrated or retrofitted in printing machines.

KATASORB® PRINT comprises a full drying unit with integrated catalytic exhaust air purification and heat recovery. This first system designed for the incorporation in printing machines lowers the operations costs of printing facilities by up to 85 percent compared to standard systems, as a study revealed. In the study, a printing machine equipped with a KATASORB® PRINT unit was compared with a comparable machine with an exhaust air purification system that did not have catalytic support and that was not integrated in the plant.

It was also possible to prove in a model that the use of the drying unit KATASORB® PRINT reduces the CO2 emission by up to 200 tons every year. The basis for this model was a printing machine with an average operating time of 4,000 hours and a printing volume of almost 58 million square meters per year. The use of KATASORB® PRINT also reduces the annual energy consumption from approx. 400 to 60 megawatt hours.

This energy efficiency and its compact design characterize the KATASORB® PRINT system. The concept owes its high efficiency to the catalytic substance conversion with the machine-oriented system design and to the recirculation of the heat into the drying unit.

With this innovative exhaust air purification solution Jenoptik enhances its profile as a supplier of technologies for the reduction of industrial pollutant emissions. In the year 2012, Jenoptik had introduced the KATASORB® M system in the market, making new fields of application accessible through its flexibility and highly efficient catalytic afterburning.

Jenoptik’s Lasers & Materials Processing division had also presented its product spectrum for laser material processing at the leading trade fair for plastics and rubber, the “K” in Düsseldorf. Among others, the JENOPTIK-VOTAN® W for laser welding, the JenLas® disk IR70E disk laser and a fiber-coupled diode laser module were on display.
