High-performance machines

Air handling technology is an integral part of the Industrial Services. In Lobbe these machines are used under the designations “high-performance vacuum induced draft” (HVS) or “Vacupress”. The key technical feature of such high performance machines is that on the one hand, they can produce an extreme vacuum (and thus the corresponding suction), on the other hand they also produce extreme pressure. Equipped with a high-lift function (for the boiler) and an automatic bagging system for big bags, there are no limits to flexibility, allowing for fast, efficient work. By now, most air conveyors at Lobbe have an ATEX certification. The vehicle fleet is constantly being modernized, the average age is at five years.

Residues, bulk materials, packing

What can air conveyor systems absorb ? So-called bulk materials, for example. These include gravel, sand, gravel, cement, coal, as well as packing plastic, metal or ceramic. The other group of substances are residues such as formed by manufacturing or finishing processes in many industrial plants. These are mainly ash, slag, dust, sludge and other solid, paste and liquid substances, which must be removed from bunkers, silos, tanks, or open buildings and industrial plants.

Air conveyor systems are at work in many economic sectors. Click on the plus sign (right) for more information.


Power plants

Residues from filters, boilers, heat exchangers, blocks, chimneys, cooling towers

Chemical plants and refineries

Residues from columns, vessels, heat exchangers, large tanks, rail tank cars, pipelines and sewer systems, sand traps, silt traps and oil separators; suction/introduction of activated carbon and packings

Coal mining

Residues such as coal residues, coal dust, coal slurries from crushers, silos, conveyors, ships, cars, tracks, steel structures and large equipment

Paper / sugar factories

Residues such as pulp, molasses, paper dust and remnants, fillers, sand, dust, ash, shavings, and sludge from sewers and silos

Steel / steel works, coking plants, foundries

Residues from filter systems and vents, electrostatic pre-separators, flue dust (dry and wet), coke from hoppers in the charging system, lime, potash, soda ash, gypsum, borax phosphate, coal, dust, mud, salt, quartz, sinter dust, ore sinter, sinter, fireclay chunks, rocks, lead oxide, dry and wet mill scale, casting flux, low foundry sand and blasting material from storage bunkers, trenches, troughs, track and conveyor systems, storage facilities and locations, fume hoods, handling facilities, electrolysis and calciners, crane bridges, rotary kilns, crane runways

Water Management Systems

Residues from sedimentation tanks, sewers, thickeners, culverts, sewer systems, sand traps, silt traps, filter systems, separators, mud pits, tanks, wells

Cement / Hartsteinwerke

Residues such as raw meal, fine dust, coal dust from the silo and conveyor cleaning
