1999: Internal memo concerning the VOC directive 1999/13/EC and its effects on lubricating magnet wire
In annex IIA of the VOC directive 1999/13/EC, which is valid in all countries of the European Community, the legal emission of volatile organic compounds resulting from the production of winding wire is limited to 5, respectively 10 g per kg of wire, depending on the wire diameter. The transition period for refitting existing plants will end on Oct. 31st, 2007.
Our Helicord system using the HELILUB® technique for emission free lubrication of magnet wire complies with all requirements of this directive. Especially when it comes to high speed production plants (up to VxD = 200), the Helilub technique alone allows very accurately and constantly measured, emission-free lubrication.
