Main focus of our services

We can advise you on every aspect of process optimisation, product quality, energy efficiency and the use of alternative fuels and raw materials. This also involves conducting measurements in high-temperature processes as well as performing process technology modelling. In the field of mechanical process technology, we offer a wide range of services, from the characterisation of solids in powder form and the performance of complex grinding and classification trials, right through to the optimisation of industrial plants.

Our Technical Reviews and Energy Reviews ensure that you are able to design your current and future cement production to be as efficient as possible. To achieve this we carry out integrated, scientifically based analyses and benchmarking, either for certain aspects of your production or for your entire production process. In the area of digitisation and data-driven solutions we can offer you assistance in the form of our digital process support. An extensive portfolio of maintenance services rounds off our process technology range. Our interdisciplinary teams of experts have many years of experience from working on international customer projects, as well as extensive scientifically based expertise in keeping with the latest research status. We work for customers from the cement industry, but also from other pit and quarry industries throughout the world (e.g. lime industry).

Technical Reviews and Benchmarking

We can provide you with tailor-made Technical Reviews and Energy Reviews to make your current and future cement production as efficient as possible. Our experienced experts work all around the world and conduct integrated, scientifically based analyses and benchmarking for either certain aspects of your production or for your entire production process (e.g. equipment, raw materials, energy demand, fuels, cement portfolio, emissions, environmental protection legislation etc.). So we can develop independent, customised solutions to optimise your installations.

To the service

Digital process support

Digital process support covers process-related subjects in the field of digitalisation and industry 4.0, as well as the directly associated aspects of simulation technology. The central areas of work include the creation of standard data structures, the utilisation and in particular the robustness of Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications, as well as the development and use of a wide range of simulation methods for process optimisation and training purposes.

Maintenance and measurement

Preventive maintenance keeps production processes in operation. It calls for the regular, diligent inspection and measurement of rotary kilns and ball mills – the heart of the plant. From our extensive portfolio of maintenance services we can offer you a complete package of tailor-made solutions. In particular we carry out the inspection and measurement of rotary kilns, rotary driers, rotary coolers and ball mills or the expert assessment of the mechanical systems of rotary equipment.
