The AFTERBURNER

An additional piece in a more and more sophisticated mosaic!

 

Since 1997 the Company has been in line with the Quality System based on UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 rules. In 2012 it has certified its Safety System according to OHSAS 18001:2007 rules and in September 2015 the Company obtained the Environmental Management System certification according to ISO 14001:2004 rules. These steps show F.lli Mazzon’s strong willingness to work maintaining high quality standards, granting the safety of all the employees and respecting the environment.

Still not fully satisfied, F.lli Mazzon S.p.A. has equipped itself with an AFTERBURNER to burn all the residues coming from the reactors, where resins of cold-box process and other condensates are produced. This equipment allows the high temperature oxidation of gas flows containing volatile organic compounds, thus turning the polluting agents into harmless substances, such as carbon dioxide or water vapor. 

This harmful substances depletion system works very efficiently and brings greater prestige to the Company, which already complied with the European Regulations concerning integrated pollution prevention and control (IPPC).

Such investment became part of a complex production site, which is more and more independent and qualitatively far more advanced. The structure and the interaction among the plant installations allow the sophisticated production of formaldehyde and phenol based resins – for the cold-box system – alkaline phenolic resins and others, as well as of furfuryl alcohol based condensates.

In the past few years, the integration of advanced electronic components within the chemical installations has enabled F.lli Mazzon S.p.A. to reach high quality and consistency standards, which were inconceivable until a few years ago for the foundry business.

This further piece demonstrates the intention of the Company to keep always up to date and to cope constantly with technological evolution and environmental protection.
