"Filtering Out Impurities: The Importance of Filtration in Industrial Processes"
Filtration is an essential process in many industries in Zambia, including mining, manufacturing, and food processing. Filtration involves separating solid particles from liquids or gases using various methods, including physical, chemical, and biological processes. In this article, we will explore the importance of filtration and its use in different industries in Zambia.
Importance of Filtration
Filtration is a critical process in many industries because it helps to remove impurities from liquids and gases, improving their quality and purity. Filtration is also used to remove harmful substances from liquids and gases, making them safe for consumption or use. Additionally, filtration is used to recover valuable materials from waste streams, reducing waste and increasing efficiency in production processes.
Use of Filtration in Industries in Zambia
Mining Industry – The mining industry is one of the largest industries in Zambia, and it relies heavily on filtration processes to separate valuable minerals from ore. Filtration is used in mining to separate solid particles from liquids, including water and chemicals used in the mining process. Filtration is also used to remove impurities and contaminants from water used in mining operations, reducing the environmental impact of mining activities.
Manufacturing Industry – The manufacturing industry in Zambia relies heavily on filtration to improve the quality of its products. Filtration is used in manufacturing to remove impurities and contaminants from liquids and gases used in production processes, ensuring the purity and consistency of the final product. Filtration is also used in manufacturing to recover valuable materials from waste streams, reducing waste and increasing efficiency in production processes.
Food Processing Industry – The food processing industry in Zambia also relies heavily on filtration processes to ensure the safety and quality of its products. Filtration is used in food processing to remove impurities and contaminants from liquids used in production processes, ensuring the purity and safety of the final product. Filtration is also used to remove harmful bacteria and other pathogens from water used in food processing, reducing the risk of contamination and illness.
Filtration is an essential process in many industries in Zambia, including mining, manufacturing, and food processing. Filtration helps to improve the quality and purity of liquids and gases used in production processes, and it helps to recover valuable materials from waste streams, reducing waste and increasing efficiency in production processes. It is essential for industries in Zambia to invest in high-quality filtration equipment and processes to ensure the safety and quality of their products, protect the environment, and improve efficiency in their operations.
For nearly 30 years, the world leader in filtration Donaldson has been established in the Channel
Since the 1990s, the Donaldson company has been manufacturing exhaust and emission control systems for off-road vehicles, which it exports internationally.
With 240 holders and 90 temporary workers , it is one of the largest companies in Saint-Lois. It is located in the commune of Domjean (Manche), 20 km south of Saint-Lô.
His name: Donaldson . In reference to Franck Donaldson, the inventor of the first air filter for a tractor, in 1915.
Customers all over the world
Since 1993, the Domjean site has been manufacturing exhaust systems , and since 2008, emission control systems for off-road machinery , i.e. non-road equipment (agricultural and construction). “We have customers all over the world, emphasizes Romain Lenoir, the site manager. In France (30% of sales), worldwide (North America, China and Brazil, i.e. 25% of sales) and in Europe (Finland, Belgium, Italy and Germany, i.e. 45% of sales). »
A very strong activity
Despite the health crisis, the American group has been experiencing very strong activity for a year and a half . “The market is very cyclical. We had been hard hit by the economic crisis of 2008. At the time, we had to carry out redundancies to deal with it, remembers Romain Lenoir. But currently, we are growing. »
New recruitments to come
Proof is: the site will continue its recruitment . “Last year, we established 20 people and we will continue, because we have permanent needs for temporary workers. Donaldson is looking for operators, welders, setters and forklift drivers.
In 20 years, the turnover has been multiplied by five. Over the years, we have developed new technologies and implemented new products, with finer materials, more complex shapes and more sophisticated systems.
Since 1996 and the takeover by the American giant Donaldson, the Domjean site has continued to develop its products thanks to its research and development department .
In our design office, we design and develop products that we test in the laboratory before putting them into production. These are tailor-made solutions for our customers. We have gone from acoustic systems to complete and very elaborate depolluting systems. For example, in 2007, for a French tractor manufacturer and its engine manufacturer, we implemented SCR technology (a selective catalytic reduction process).
