Interview with Mr. Roland Tapken

Interview with Mr. Roland Tapken, specialist air purification consultant at market leader Big Dutchman in Vechta. Mr. Tapken explained the meaning and function of exhaust air cleaning systems.

Mr. Tapken you have stated that the exhaust air scrubbers require chemicals such as sulfuric acid and alkalis. How do you ensure that your customers are properly advised when dealing with chemicals?
All systems are supplied by us with safety data sheets and customers receive a briefing about the operation and use of equipment. In addition, the farmer receives from us a shortlist of potential suppliers of chemicals, who pay particular attention to the safe packaging of dangerous goods.

• Because Big Dutchman is not a supplier of chemicals, we refer to a list of suppliers

These suppliers offer the possibility of supplying the chemicals in the double-walled VARIBOX. With VARIBOX, the supplier has an approved UN transport packaging and a DIBt-approved storage container. At the same time, the VARIBOX meets the high expectations of the WHG and AwSV. These are the regulation on provisions for the handling of substances that are hazardous to water.

Mr. Tapken you are currently speaking about the WHG. What exactly are you thinking of?
Since chemicals like sulfuric acid and lye are classified as hazardous substances, they must have a drip tray. The VARIBOX FC has an integrated drip tray with a double-walled design. General approval for the integrated drip tray by the DIBt is available for the VARIBOX: Z-40.21-534.

What benefits does the VARIBOX offer the farmer in his daily needs?
Clear economic benefits, since the VARIBOX is completely empty and therefore all purchased Kg sources are used.

Mr. Tapken you have talked about the practical application for farmers. What other benefits does the VARIBOX have?
The VARIBOX is equipped with a modern click system © so that the farmer cannot come into contact with the chemicals when connecting the VARIBOX to the dosing system. This corresponds to the accident prevention regulations.

Mr. Tapken to what extent does the VARIBOX contribute to sustainability?
The VARIBOX is a robust and reusable container that has been proven for years in agriculture. The manufacturer Promens ensures that the material is recycled after the permitted life of the VARIBOX has expired.
Mr. Tapken, we thank you for your insights in the field of agricultural applications. So it can be said that the exhaust air purification systems of Big Dutchman in combination with Promens’ VARIBOX form a perfect unit. It offers farmers the opportunity to use their exhaust air purification systems safely, economically, and sustainably.

Connecting the VARIBOX IBC without opening it.

With just the click of an NS4 quick coupler on the top, the VARIBOX FC is connected to the installation. An extractor tube inside leads to the lowest point of the VARIBOX FC and this achieves a maximum emptying, leaving at most a ½ liter remaining volume. When connected to a pump, the VARIBOX FC remains closed and the green cover should not be opened. This minimizes the risk of contact with the chemical inside.
