When JKF was founded more than 50 years ago, the starting point was the customers in the agro and milling industry.
Today the agro and milling industry is still a very significant customer segment where we supply complete series of high quality components for process extraction which include filters, cyclones, rotary valves, stainless ducts, standard ducts, fans, special products and accessories.
Therefore, we know the industry's basic needs and requirements to the functionality of our products and of course the existing legislation.
It is regardless of whether it is equipment for the agro and milling industry, silo plants or solutions which target some of the world's largest companies in the industry.
The same experience is applied by our professional network of hand-picked partners who supply individual and custom-built ventilation and extraction solutions, which ensure clean air for the benefit of the employees, the environment, safety and the reliability of the machines in the production process.
Dust is bad for the working environment and makes cleaning difficult - clean air increases the efficiency
When the agro and milling industry are working with different raw materials – e.g. grain, seeds, rice, sugar and coffee - large amounts of dust of varying particle sizes are generated.
The smallest particles tend to move around in the atmosphere of the premises. This dries out and irritates the employee's mucous membranes, eyes, skin and respiratory system. At the same time, the amounts of dust make heavy requirements to the routine cleaning and maintenance.
It is at the expense of the working environment and generates this significant discomfort for the employees resulting in increased absence from work due to illness and therefore reduced efficiency in the company.
Based on the Danish Working Environment Act we supply – in co-operation with our partners – efficient and custom-built extraction and ventilation systems which target the challenges and specific requirements of the agro and milling industry including the requirements to cleaning. Therefore, all JKF's components are made in a design which is easy to clean.
The benefit is a unique combination of good working environment, sustainability, improved products, easy cleaning and maintenance and a positive impact on the company’s profitability.
Minimize the risk of explosion and production downtime
For many years JKF has been the market leader within explosion protection. With the introduction of the European ATEX-directive in conjunction with the working environment, this area of safety has been additionally highlighted.
ATEX is a French abbreviation of “ATmosphère EXplosif” which relates to protective devices and systems used in atmospheres with a danger of explosion (gas or dust).
The ATEX-directive is especially comprehensive in the agro and milling industry, where it covers dust in the same way as flammable gases. Here the right extraction systems play a fundamental role. At the same time, reduced dust in the production process means far more reliable machinery and minimizes downtime which has economic consequences.
A complete range of products which reflects on the bottom line
JKF's range of products include filters, filter bags, stainless ducts, cyclones, rotary valves, standard ducts, fans, special products and accessories all of which are used in process extraction systems.
The products are carefully selected to suit our customer's needs and requirements, and we can supply both small and large solutions at budgets suiting the customer.
Common to all our products is the focus on safety, environment, noise, performance, efficiency, reduction of costs and energy consumption.
Designed to provide a competitive time of repayment of the total investment cost they all have a positive effect on the company's bottom line.
Furthermore, all our products are designed in a way so they can not only be used in a total JKF-solution, but also together with other makes.
JKF will of course provide documentation for the majority of processes and products through its diversity of ISO-certificates.
