Reduction of operating costs with energy efficiency

Environment-friendly technologies of the KAPP Group allow customers to assure sustainable production and the reduction of costs at the same time.


The challenge in terms of sustainability:

The energy consumption of the grinding machines offers potential savings, which have to be used.

Pump drive: Operation without frequency converter. Activation of the pump through motor contactor. Flow control over mechanical valve.
Cooling and purged air: Gasket system with purged air. Overdimensioned cooling air.
Automatic turn-off: Machine keeps running in spite of parts shortage

The solution:

Pump drive:  Operation with frequency converter.
Cooling and purged air: Gasket system without purged air. Cooling air, optimally adjusted to your needs.
Automatic turn-off: Machine switches to stand-by when parts shortage occurs.
