The produced housing parts “Housing Bottom” and “Housing Tops” are components of the HME breathing system filter. These minimise the risk of transmission of infections by absorbing viruses and bacteria during clinical ventilation.
The housing parts are produced under clean pharmaceutical conditions and with optimum utilisation of the material. The sprue recirculation used in production will result in a 6 per cent reduction in GHG emissions in the future.
In addition, the square design allows the parts to be stacked in a space-saving way and thus significantly optimises the logistics of packaging, storage and transport: where previously there was room for 4,800 loosely piled parts on a pallet, there are now 7,392 parts. “This enabled us to reduce GHG emissions in the area of logistics by 3.3 tonnes of CO2e - that’s 32 per cent!” explains Mike Landwehr.
