AL-KO POWER UNIT – even more efficient

AL-KO POWER UNIT – even more efficient

According to the motto MORE THAN CLEAN AIR, AL-KO Extraction Technology presented its solutions for woodworking companies from industry and trade at the LIGNA trade fair in Hanover. Visitors experienced the current models of the proven AL-KO POWER UNIT series at the AL-KO booth, along with many other highlights.

For 35 years, AL-KO Extraction Technology has been offering powerful extraction solutions that ensure healthy air in industry and trade. The innovative devices and systems from AL-KO remove dust, chipped wood and paint mist produced in manufacturing processes without leaving any residue. Thus ensures a healthy working environment. From single-user extraction to central extraction systems with an air volume of over 100,000 m³/h, AL-KO Extraction Technology offers solutions for all applications.

More efficiency and more performance

At the LIGNA trade fair, the specialists presented proven technology and a number of innovations for woodworking companies at Stand D15 in Hall 12, including revised versions of the proven AL-KO POWER UNIT mobile clean air dust extractor. In addition to the AL-KO POWER UNIT 120 M – equipped with a new control unit – there is the AL-KO POWER UNIT 160 K with performance-optimised jet impulse cleaning (AL-KO OPTI JET): the filter elements are automatically and regularly cleaned of adhering dust and chipped wood by a blast of compressed air. This guarantees optimum air permeability at all times, significantly extends the filter service life and contributes to the high efficiency of the system. This system is equipped with the patented AL-KO LEVEL CONTROL 21 container monitoring system and the patented AL-KO CLEAN STAUBSCHOTT for dust-free container replacement.

AL-KO Extraction Technology also presented the AL-KO POWER UNIT 250 P-ZRS FU: With IE4 drive and optimised impeller geometry, it achieves up to 30 percent more vacuum with the same drive load compared to the previous version. The frequency converter (FU) enables particularly energy-efficient operation. With the optional rotary valve (ZRS), the extracted material (chipped wood and dust) is automatically discharged – in this way, the extraction process can continue without interruption.

Further advantages of the AL-KO POWER UNIT:

  • High suction power, small space requirement
  • 100% air recirculation without temperature loss
  • Minimum noise level
  • Patented filling level monitoring
  • Easy to maintain and certified automatic fire extinguishing system
