The secret behind a 40% lower energy consumption

BUFAB Lann is the leading producer of turned parts in Sweden, known for their exceptional machining capabilities and expertise in CNC Single Spindle, CNC Multi Spindle, Multiplex machines, milling machines, and Rotary Transfer Machines.
As a subsidiary of BUFAB, a major supplier of fasteners and related products in Europe, BUFAB Lann has built a reputation for excellence in the industry.


BUFAB Lann faced several challenges with its industrial cleaning processes. Specifically, the company was struggling with spots on the parts after washing, the need to wash at high temperatures, and the use of multiple chemicals in the process. To address these issues, BUFAB Lann sought a more sustainable and efficient industrial cleaning solution that would not compromise the quality of its products. After extensive research and evaluation, BUFAB Lann partnered with DST-CHEMICALS.

Emil Aggefors, warehouse manager at BUFAB Lann says: “When we select our supplier we want a partner. For us, DST could provide the help we needed to optimize the use of our chemicals and support our cleaning process.”


When evaluating potential partners for a surface treatment solution, it’s important to consider the total cost of ownership (TCO) of each option. This includes not only the upfront cost of the actual cleaning products but also the cost of implementing and maintaining the solution over time. Together BUFAB Lann and DST-CHEMICALS calculated the TCO based on the cost of energy, water, and other resources needed to operate the solution.

The maintenance costs involved were also examined; from man hours to bath and machine maintenance. The water-based products from DST-CHEMICALS are formulated to cause minimum damage on the equipment used for degreasing and cleaning and Emil Aggefors is happy with the cooperation: “We have a very close cooperation where DST help us monitor our baths in order for them to stay in good condition. DST is also a great partner for advice and support.”


Through the adoption of DST-CHEMICALS’ products, BUFAB Lann was able to achieve remarkable improvements on the surface cleaning.

The new solution offered superior cleaning performance, reduced energy consumption, and eliminated the need for multiple chemicals. Moreover, the use of DST-CHEMICALS’ products resulted in significant cost savings for BUFAB Lann, which amounted to a 40% reduction in energy costs alone.

How HAMBURGER HOCHBAHN saves energy and water using industrial degreasers

HAMBURGER HOCHBAHN is owned by the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. For more than 100 years, the company has been a pioneer within the field of sustainable mobility in Hamburg, and as the city was appointed “European Green Capital 2011“, standards are high as to air quality and climate protection. All subway lines and e-buses drive on certified eco-power. Our ambition: By 2030, the entire HAMBURGER HOCHBAHN fleet should be completely zero-emission. This is only possible by consistently focussing on sustainability within all areas – also in terms of use of resources and reduction of emissions wherever possible, for instance by switching to the products of DST-CHEMICALS.


Being a modern Hamburg company, our focus is on driving motion and progress for the future. This includes a consistent sustainability strategy, covering everything from a zero-emission fleet to low-energy maintenance and cleaning of our vehicles, and with DST-CHEMICALS a new course has been set in this regard.


I the subway workshop in Barmbek, bogies and add-ons for the vehicles are regularly degreased, repaired and mounted. These maintenance and cleaning tasks have so far required much time and energy. This is going to change. “It was important for us to find an energy-saving solution for the degreasing process”, team manager Michael Schnabel says. The biodegradable and water-based cleaner DST-DEGREEZ/9E was the right solution. It makes it possible to reduce the temperature of the BVL cleaning plant from 60°C to 45°C – with the same high-quality result.


“A temperature reduction of 15°C resulted in significant energy savings of up to 45%. And we have further reduced our water consumption significantly”, Michael Schnabel is happy to say.

Finally, a precise additional dosing of the cleaner along with reduced evaporation and a bath life of more than six months became possible.

This means: Reduced waste, reduced workloads and reduced environmental impact. A service technician from DST-CHEMICALS comes by regularly to ensure that the processes enable optimal efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
