Klöckner Pentaplast (kp) was founded in 1965 in Montabaur, Germany, and has become a global leader in the plastics industry. The company now has 32 factories in 18 different countries and supplies companies in the food, consumer goods, pharmaceutical and medical industries. Customers from the pharmaceutical and food segments in particular have very high requirements in terms of hygiene and cleanliness. 

Among other things, a cleaning solution was sought for a hall entrance in front of the inner gate. The objective was to protect kp products from contamination by reducing the amount of dirt entering the production areas. The decision was made back in 2017 in favour of the ProfilGate® st65 model, which is characterized by a high dirt volume. 

Klöckner Pentaplast mainly uses hand trucks, pallet trucks, electric ants and small forklifts, which have small wheels and castors, to access the cleaning area.  Accordingly, the st series was chosen, which is characterized by fine meshes of the gratings and is thus optimally suited for this type of industrial truck. The internal roadway is heavily used: approximately 240 passes per day. Cleaning of the field is carried out weekly. In January 2021, the dirt was collected and weighed. There were 4.25 kg of dirt on the scales. Extrapolating this to a full year, over 50 kg of dirt can be intercepted before it enters production. 

KP is very satisfied:

"We continue to notice a high level of effectiveness. These systems considerably reduce the amount of dirt entering the production areas."
