Balancing and environmental protection - a logical connection
Balancing is in itself an act of active environmental protection. Not only will a well-balanced rotor run more smoothly, it will also last longer and produce less noise, even if the primary objective of balancing is the reduction of rotor vibrations, in order to keep bearing loads within reasonable limits. The consequence: Balancing extends the service life of a machine - thus contributing towards the conservation of valuable resources. The reduction of the noise level of the rotor and the machine is an additional benefit, which should not be ignored.
As early as the mid-nineties, Carl Schenck AG started implementing an Environmental Management System. Within the framework of the decentralisation of the company, Schenck RoTec introduced its own Environmental Management System in mid-2001. In accordance with our environmental guidelines, we are committed to reducing the use of environmentally harmful or toxic substances to the minimum amount required.
We do our best to use natural resources and energy sensibly, avoid producing waste and encourage recycling of reusable raw materials. To support these principles, we provide our staff with the opportunity to participate in a wide range of courses in this area.
