Improving Products & Process Quality with CFD optimized Extraction Systems

JOA technology delivers economic benefits through improved process stability and product quality. Our product recovery systems are GCM balanced and apply distributed conveying velocities to prevent dust build-up or vapor challenges.

CFD-optimized extraction systems and deflector hoods are designed to minimize the extraction of valuable dust. This also reduces the risk with explosive dust in the ATEX zone and reduces the downtime of the facility due to lesser need for cleaning or filter replacement.

JOA’s proven filtration technology

We are dedicated to effectively communicating with our customers to resolve specific problems with customized solutions. Based on our Proven Process, we are specially equipped to handle air filter challenges in ATEX zones. Our references come from all over the world, which shows the strength of GCM modeling based dust and vapor collection systems with an eye to economics and operator safety.  JOA air technical innovations  contribute to stable production processes, improved product quality, and reduced number of rejects.

Proven best practices include:

- Deflector hoods engineered for valuable product recovery and dust collection
- Micro-climates for controlled local airflow and local clean rooms
- Compliance with ATEX regulations
- Precise system balancing for flexible, on-demand (carrousel) extraction
- Saving sites up to $250.000,- per year due to prevention of overextraction and a new        balanced and tailor-made implemented extraction system.

On-demand extraction with GCM Balancing

To effectively operate industrial dust collection and ventilation systems in a stable, reliable and efficient manner, predictive GCM and V0crit-Modeling is essential.

Improving process and product quality across various industries

Due to close cooperation with your production team and our knowledge of particulate matter behaviour, computational fluid dynamics modelling and our large industrial experience, we know how to design and standardize solutions across a multitude of industries.

  • Food production

    Balanced extraction with deflector hoods minimize losses of valuable additives by over 40%, contributing to good manufacturing practices (GMP).

  • Medicine manufacturing

    GCM modeling and humidity control make it possible to realize 33% fewer rejected bioreactor batches.

  • Advanced powder milling

    It is essential to avoid cross-contamination and optimize product recovery. High-end ACiP filters, with acoustic cleaning in place, serve this purpose. As a result, it reduces the (cleanroom) cleaning downtime of the factory significantly.

  • Film extrusion

    JOA designed micro-climates specialize in controlling the air-flow profile in optical grade plastic film extrusion. We reduced the number of defects by 70% and guarantee ‘ISO class 7 air quality’ during operation and eliminating the extruder thermal engine.

  • Toner production

    Extruder-feeder venting via JOA balanced extraction resulting in stable throughput and increased productivity.

Process & product improvement for truly sustainable yield

Patent-pending ACiP filters realize gentle product handling with optimal production yield and prevention of cross-contamination. An absolutely balanced extraction system is essential here. JOA balancing restrictors guarantee a stable process and prevent over-extraction and loss of valuable powders. Special de-gritter and deflector hood designs recover valuable products at the extraction point, reaching yield improvement up to 40-45%.

Yield Improvement in Manufacturing by Degritting & patented Deflector Hoods

It is necessary to prevent over-extraction of valuable dust and secure adequate product recovery. For effective powder restoration it is important to fully understand the motion of particles in the air that escapes from the process.
