Coolant filtration in
a high-tech engine plant
Cooling lubricant filtration
at the highest level
This project in the field of cooling lubricant filtration included the engineering, manufacturing, delivery and installation of the complete filter technology for the production of gasoline and diesel engines.
On an area of around 50 hectares, the car manufacturer invested around 500 million euros in a new high-tech engine plant in Jawor, Poland.
With a project volume of around 15 million euros, this order provides FAUDI with the largest single order in its 84-year company history.
The overall scope of the project consists of several central plants with a total supply capacity of approximately 55,000 liters per minute, as well as two storage facilities for the storage and intermediate storage of used oil and the refilling of fresh oil.
More than 160 machine tools (application: turning, drilling, milling of crankcases for diesel and gasoline engines, medium: oil) are supplied with oil from the FAUDI filter systems by means of the external pipeline, which has been specially contoured and installed for this application and has a length of approx. 3,000 meters.
For the processing of the valuable production residues (metal chips + oil), three FAUDI briquetting presses were additionally installed. The metal chips are briquetted and the oil recovered in the process is fed back into the filter circuit. Due to the valorization of the chips and the recycling of the oil, the payback period is around one year.
