  • Value for Money

    Value for Money

    • Requirement of less personnel
    • Reduced operating and production costs
  • Safety


    • during line operation no hazardous liquids or fumes escape into the working area
    • the waste air fan is connected to emergency power supply
    • during instrument air failure all valves fall in a safe-fail position
    • the pickling line is closed by covers made of polypropylene material shaped and stiffened by means of metal structural elements and a set of hydraulic lifting devices enabling access to the tanks interior
    • condensate produced by heat exchangers is continuously analysed by conductivity and ph-meters to assure that no acid leaks into the condensate system.
