Franke-Filter certified for environmental systems

Published on: 

Franke-Filter has received ISO 14001 certification for its environmental management systems. The certificate was issued after passing the multiple-step certification process. All incoming and outgoing flows of goods and processes as well as the production methods were examined in detail. The aim was to implement the environmental policy set by the management, which entails a voluntary commitment to optimize environmental protection measures in the company. This includes the systematic recording and compliance with all legal and official requirements, as well as the recognition and evaluation of opportunities and risks.

Company founder Manfred Franke developed a process in which oil mists are extracted, filtered, and returned to the environment as clean air. Oil mist is created on all oil-lubricated rotating machines, such as turbines, generators, compressors, and motors where an oil reservoir is used. The oil separated by the filter elements is returned to the lubricating oil system without any loss of quality.
