Latest developments in the field of blast abrasives
On September 15 and 16, we hosted the 8th network meeting in Hattingen. The Abrasives Competence Network was founded to combine the knowledge of industry and research. At the network meetings, topics related to mechanical surface preparation are presented and discussed.
A tour of the Henrichshütte Industrial Museum and a nice evening event framed the important exchange of information.
Many thanks to Mrs. Charlotte Graner and Christiane Boinski from the Institute for Corrosion Protection in Dresden for the successful organization.
Investment in adiabatic cooling system
At the heart of our production are two high-performance induction melting furnaces which melt down mainly recycled scrap. To dissipate the process heat, there is a water circuit which was previously routed via a cooling system with open water sprinklers.
By investing in a closed cooling system, on the one hand evaporation losses are avoided and fresh water consumption is reduced by at least 80%, on the other hand it requires less maintenance and energy and the use of biochemical inhibitors is no longer necessary.
The environment is also a big winner. The saving in greenhouse gas emissions is estimated at 93 tons per year.
On the way to climate neutrality
Since 01 January 2022, VULKAN INOX has been covering its electrical energy demand from 100% renewable generation. This means that the company is already reducing its CO₂ emissions by more than 80% and is making considerable progress in decarbonizing its production and meeting the European CO₂ reduction targets.
Cooperation - Live and on site
At the WAGNER / DÖRKEN workshop "Corrosion protection by zinc flake coating", the latest developments, current findings and trends, as well as solutions for current coating topics were presented and discussed.
Mechanical surface preparation by blasting provides the right "foundation" in the process chain and our technical expert provided detailed information on this topic.
Foundation VULKAN INOX ITALIA
VULKAN INOX has been successfully active in Italy for more than 30 years and, with the realignment, is integrating the proven structure into its existing sales organization.
New Sales Manager Asia
We are pleased to have recruited Hans Klein, an experienced and competent expert who is well known in the industry.
He is responsible for our sales in the Near, Middle and Far East and, with his many years of experience, is at service to our distributors and customers for all application-related questions.
31. Pulversymposium Dresden
The entire value chain of powder coating application discussed the current challenges and opportunities of modern powder coating.
We thank all business partners and participants for their visit and the good discussions. We look forward to seeing you again - at the latest in early 2023 at the 32nd Powder Symposium in Dresden.
Global Industrie Lyon
Our first presence event after a long time and a pleasant feeling of personal togetherness.
We thank all business partners, interested parties and friends of the company for their visit and for the good conversations.
VULKAN INOX trains
A new training year has begun and we are strengthening our team in the technical-commercial area with an apprentice who is learning the job profile of a foundry mechanic.
In a dynamic and demanding market environment, VULKAN INOX thus relies on the training of its own qualified personnel and offers young people a professional perspective.
We wish our new colleague all the best and much success!
