The company recently deployed its hi-tech EcoDryScrubber
solution in the highly competitive Japanese market. The EcoDryScrubber from
Dürr is an environmentally-friendly and reliable solution that leverages dry
separation to capture and filter out overspray that occurs during painting. A
leader in paint systems, Dürr has equipped 80 pc of its paint shops with the
innovative dry separation technology since the EcoDryScrubber was introduced.
One of Japan’s leading train operators with its fleet of hi-speed locomotives
has deployed the EcoDryScrubber technology in its new paintshop for aluminium
panels on the Shinkansen high-speed train. The system is scheduled to enter
service in Hamamatsu in summer 2015.

that we can serve another industry with this project, not to mention a market
that is as technologically challenging as the one in Japan", affirms
Hirokazu Okahana, Managing Director of Dürr Japan.
