We also provide a global service for the systems operating at our clients’ locations. With innovative Belt Weigh Feeder, Belt Scales, Loss-In-Weight systems, Big Bags and Hopper Scales we can provide the basic products needed on this market.

Our competence as a solution finder is based on many years of experience and a vast range of installations and applications operating in the world’s bulk goods industries.

Cement, plaster, sand, broken stone, gravel

Steel and metal

BranchenbildOf the mineral raw materials produced, over 80% is ultimately used as construction materials: lime- and dolomite stone for the cement, limestone, and refractory industries, or clay for the production of tiles and ceramics. Gravel, sand, and natural stone, for instance, are used in asphalt road construction and in the production of sandy limestone, concrete, and prefabricated concrete products.

BranchenbildThe steel industry manufactures preliminary products like e.g. hot rolled wide strip, forged parts, plates, rails, long products, wire, pipes, etc., that are then processed further into end products. The production of steel, whether based on the Linz Donawitz, electric furnace, or smelting reduction process, requires the metered introduction of the most diverse additives.

Glass and recycling

Plastics, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and foodstuffs

BranchenbildThe manufacture of glass uses the most diverse raw materials, e.g. quartz sand, sodium carbonate, potash, feldspar, lime, dolomite, minium, borax, barium carbonate, and – not least of all – recycled glass. Here too the recipe for the mixture is decisive.

BranchenbildThe methods used during their production, e.g. mixing, crushing, cutting, chopping, rubbing, parting, screening, filtering, heating, frying, boiling, pasteurising, sterilising, refrigerating, drying, distilling, fermenting, protein coagulation, the introduction of chemical food additives, etc., require the balanced metering of the most diverse auxiliaries.

Mining and preparation processes in mines

Coal fired power plant

BranchenbildMined raw materials can be divided into three major groups: elementary raw materials (basic materials for metallurgy and chemistry; ore, gold, iron ore, haematite, galena, sphalerite, calcium fluoride, barite, rock salt, potassium salts, saltpetre, borates, nitrates, elementary sulphur, graphite), energy raw materials (hydrocarbons, crude oil, natural gas, asphalt, ozocerite, bitumen, lignite, hard coal, anthracite, peat, sapropelite, caustobiolites, uranium), and the special property materials (industrial minerals, stones, soils, bulk raw materials, precious stones, semiprecious stones, china clay, alumina, mica, asbestos, feldspar, quartz, quartzite, graphite, talc, magnesite, alum, vitriols, limestone, dolomite, sand, gravel, clay, trass, and plaster [for manufacturing construction materials], bentonite, coloured clays, phosphates, diatomaceous earth, precious stones, semiprecious stones, diamonds, emeralds, rubies, garnets, amber).

BranchenbildIn a coal fired power plant, a coal pulveriser grinds and dries lignite or hard coal and injects the fuel dust into the firing chamber where it undergoes complete combustion. The fuel ashes are drawn as cinders out of the firing chamber and prepared for further use as construction materials.
