Muhr und Bender KG was founded in Attendorn in 1916. Today, the headquarters of the Mubea group of companies is still located in Attendorn. The automotive supplier manufactures components for the engine, chassis, interior, transmission and body. Spring band clamps, stabilizers and valve springs, for example, are produced at the Attendorn site.
A cleaning solution was required for an internal sluice between a production and a logistics area. It should be avoided that the dirt, which develops in the production, is carried on into the clean area. ProfilGate® was the right product for cleaning tires and rollers for internal industrial trucks. The ProfilGate® cleaning field was installed at the end of 2018.
The st-series was selected as model 65 in the dimension 3x5 segments. This results from the general conditions. The clean running zone is used by hand trucks, lift trucks, e-ants and small forklifts. These industrial trucks all have small wheels or rollers. The st-series was developed for cleaning them. It has a finer mesh and is therefore perfectly suited for narrow rollers. The area - an internal main driveway - is heavily used. Approx. 180 crossings are made per day. This is why model 65 was chosen, which has the largest dirt collection reservoir. The length of the field was determined by the largest tire diameter, as the best cleaning performance takes place at a triple wheel rotation.
The cleaning field is emptied in a rhythm of fourteen days. Mubea weighed the dirt for one month during these emptyings in order to measure the effectiveness of the system. The result was 3.8 kilograms, an average of 0.8 kg to 1 kg per week. Projected over one year, Muhr und Bender KG will - thanks to the ProfilGate® system - have to remove approx. 45-50 kg less dirt from the logistics area, as it remains in the dirt trap trays. There it can simply be removed, e.g. by hoovering.
