Solution Overview

The can decorating process produces solvent vapours, fumes and airborne particulates which can make the environment an uncomfortable, if not hazardous, place to work. Impact Air Systems have developed a range of extraction systems and filtration equipment tailored specifically for:

  • Base Coaters
  • Decorators
  • Overvarnishing Units

These incorporate custom designed stainless steel capture hoods, pre-separators, two stage filters and high efficiency invertor controlled extract fans linked to pressure monitoring devices to ensure optimum extraction rates are maintained for the life of the filter medium.

Case Study

Beverage Can Manufacture – Process Extraction Solutions

Impact Air Systems was approached by a well known beverage can manufacturer to provide process extraction solutions at their new plant in Switzerland.

An aluminium scrap extraction system was installed to extract off cut aluminium from the cupping press trimmers and several other collection points located around the plant to provide efficient scrap collection.

The scrap material is pneumatically conveyed approx. 100m before being baled for recycling.

Aluminium Can Scrap Extraction Systems

Impact Air Systems install an aluminium scrap extraction system at a can manufacturing factory in Kuwait.

The system collects waste aluminium scrap from two production lines both consisting of 7 trimmers and 1 cupping press.  The waste then passes through a heavy duty chopping fan and static screen materials separator. Working in conjunction with a balance fan the aluminium scrap is separated from the conveying air stream and delivered via a weigh hopper and feed chute to a 3 stage compression baler.

Aluminium Scrap Waste Extraction

A well known beverage can manufacturer asked us to supply a aluminium can scrap waste system for a new beverage can factory being built in Angola.

The system consisted of a process scrap system consisting of 8 trimmers, 1 cupping press and a local chopping fan. It also contains a whole reject can collection system with 4 collection points and a common static screen materials separator for both systems. The system includes a baler drop chute with an integrated weight hopper and a system control panel.

Aluminium Scrap Waste Extraction – Beverage Can Manufacture

We have completed a range of extraction systems such as a can cooling system for one bank of five inside pray machines in Egypt and a sprays filtration system in Italy consisting of extraction ductwork and a fully automatic filter.
