PRODUCTION CONTINUED PIGGING IN PLACE OF FLUSHING For process reliability reasons, accurate mixer filling is essential with production batches. To prevent contamination, the mixer feed lines have to be cleaned after every run. This is done by what is known as a pigging system, which cleans lines by using compressed air to propel an elastic plastic plug back and forth inside them. Pigging reduces the need for line flushing using cleaning solutions by over 80 %. High-quality additive packages and semi-finished products are mixed in a premix room. Ongoing modernization is continuously improving working conditions in production, while focused automation is reducing the strain on employees. All production processes are connected to a process control system. “AN APPLE A DAY …” MOTOREX provides daily fresh fruit as an healthy snack to its employees. SAFETY FIRST Everyone who works at MOTOREX knows that workplace safety and health protection come first in all operations. All processes are clearly specified in accordance with a precisely developed safety plan (ASA/EKAS) and quality assurance system (ISO 9001/14001). Furthermore, they are systematically reviewed to identify potential improvements. Production staff receive corresponding training. The applicable standards also help keep production operations as environmentally friendly as possible. Each of the three MOTOREX plants has its own safety officer. A team develops safety protocols to analyze risks and establish the appropriate measures for each part of the enterprise. 18
