KONVEKTA AG

Products

Konvekta represents sustainable production

We are facing a major threat with climate change. Therefore, companies must also take responsibility in dealing with resources


The production: environmentally friendly and energy efficient

The commitment of Konvekta AG for the environment and its protection is also reflected in our products. All processes for the production of Konvekta air conditioning and heating systems are environmentally friendly and energy efficient.
All systems are 100% recyclable.

Our products of the last years have been continuously optimized so that less and less conventional refrigerant is needed.

 

Our Production

During the production of our products no harmful exhaust gases or waste water are produced. All processes are environmentally friendly. The disposal of garbage and scrap parts is carried out strictly according to DIN standards.

All stages of production have been optimized in terms of environment and energy. The use of environmentally friendly components and the economical use of raw materials and energy are further positive characteristics of our products.

Varietal processing

In the production of our air conditioning systems, too, the environment is always in focus. For example, we reduce our waste volume by using reusable packaging and specially developed transport racks.

The CO2 heatpumps is the climate-friendly alternative

CO2 heat pumps are sustainable and environmentally friendly due to the environmentally friendly refrigerant CO2. Without producing emissions, buses and rail vehicles can be cooled pleasantly for drivers and passengers in summer, and in winter the interior is heated to a comfortable temperature using the ambient air.

With natural CO2 as a refrigerant, considerable energy savings can be achieved in cooling and heating operation, because CO2 has up to 20% higher efficiency than chemical refrigerants, and the target temperature is reached 20% faster.
As a natural component of air, CO2 has a global warming potential of only factor 1 - chemical refrigerants are 1000 times higher or they are flammable and the decomposition products are dangerous for the environment!
CO2 (R744) as a natural refrigerant is the climate-friendly alternative to the chemical refrigerants commonly used today.

Environmental program of the quality management

An internal monitoring audit regularly checks whether the requirements for environmental protection and sustainability are being met and where potential can be found.

For example, the correct separation of waste and the possibilities for avoiding waste materials are checked. For example, the production, central warehouse and external warehouse areas are regularly checked to determine where more waste and residual materials are generated and what needs to be changed to avoid or eliminate them. Saving energy is also an issue here. Many areas have been equipped with motion detectors that control lighting and replace conventional light sources with LED lights.

Cooling the "Technology and Innovation Center" with CO2

Our climatic hall offers a temperature range from winterly -20 °C to hot +60 °C. In addition, various environmental simulations such as solar radiation or snow deposits can be displayed there.

All cooling and heating processes take place exclusively with natural refrigerants (CO2 and ammonia for cooling and natural gas for heating).

 

 


Packaging

Additionally we optimized. Reusable building blocks made of a light but robust material support the air conditioning systems and allow easy stacking of several systems. This eliminates the need for additional cardboard and plastic packaging.

 


Responsibility for the environment

The new generation UltraLight 3 has also been optimized not only in terms of its technical features and service. The commitment of Konvekta AG for the environment as well as its protection is reflected in the UL3. The aim of the improvements was also to develop the future air-conditioning and heating systems and all related processes in an environmentally friendly and energy-efficient way. Accordingly, the facelift of the UltraLight was carried out with a clear focus on components and processing methods. This means that the entire system remains 100% recyclable for this generation.

All stages of production have been optimized in terms of environment and energy. The use of environmentally friendly components and the economical use of raw materials and energy are further positive characteristics of the system.
In addition, an optimized packaging and transport system was developed. Reusable components made of a light but robust material carry the air conditioning systems and allow easy stacking of several systems. This eliminates the need for additional cardboard and plastic packaging.
The UltraLight 3 is a technological statement for the future and saves operators service and energy costs.


Used raw materials - ostracism of hoods made of fiberglass (GFK)

We do not use harmful raw materials. We reject the use of glass fibers for the production of the hoods for our air conditioners. Although glass fiber hoods have a high stability and durability, they can only be recycled with great difficulty and are not degradable due to their chemical components.

When polyester resins are used, styrene vapors are released. These irritate the mucous membranes and respiratory tract. For this reason, the GefStoffV prescribes a maximum occupational exposure limit value (OEL) of 86 mg/m³. In certain concentrations, an explosive mixture may even occur. During the further processing of GRP components (grinding, cutting, sawing), fine dusts and chips with glassy filaments as well as sticky dusts are produced in considerable quantities. These impair the health of people and the functionality of machines and plants.
