In partnership with the most respected brands in the world, Coveris develops vital products that protect everything from the food we eat, to the medical supplies to the touch screen device in our pockets contributing to the lives of millions every day. When Coveris opened their new factory in Christchurch, New Zealand they decided to install not only a new extrusion tower but also a new laminator and printer. It was critical to get the extraction on all this new equipment done properly to give consistent high equality extraction allowing them to run to a standard they can stand by.
Airtight Solutions suppled and installed all the extraction ducting for the new laminator, printer and extrusion tower along with suppling and installing the fans and ducting for the remaining equipment. The extrusion tower utilised ozone treatment. Ozone can be very corrosive so Airtight constructed all the required ducting out of stainless steel, reaching a massive 22m high in the air.
Airtight also used their expertise in fume extraction to assist in the commissioning of the printer and extrusion tower.
