Research and Development

The foundation stone is laid in the Research and Development (R&D) department for our solutions to fight dust, odor, and fires. 

The engineering process has a high priority within the company. Decades-long experience in nozzle technology, and with machines, plant, and turbine construction, combined with our first-class and highly motivated team results in quality solutions. 

Many of our ideas come to us via feedback from our customers, and we continue to develop and refine our products. It is also essential for us to research various technologies. Continual tests are carried out in cooperation with universities and competence centers.

Another favorite topic for our R&D department is the enhancement in the efficiency of all our components. Machines and solutions are continually improved, and efforts are always directed at improving the energy balance, without compromising on the quality.

  • Total throughput: 4700l/min
  • Many options are available for the TAF35, among the most important are: chassis on rails/ railcar, the pressurized port, the Euro Adaptor Frame.

Firefighting Turbine FT10e

Development of the FT10e stationary firefighting turbine
Total throughput of 4200l/min possible

In the same year, the first stationary system with two FT10e firefighting turbines is put into service at PRS Premium Recycling Service GmbH in Frankfurt.

2018

Variable Flow Rate Valve

Variable flow rate valve (diaphragm valve used to control the rate of water flow)A worldwide innovation introduced onto the market: The 2-D MonitorTwo-dimensional movable monitor for improved firefighting over a broader spatial area.

Milestones in Development: Dust

2007

First Dust Controller DCT5

Development and construction of the first DCT5 Dust Controller. It is the first product on the market that features an internal nozzle head.

2008

Complete Product DCT40

The bigger DCT40 comes on the market. It is a complete product with a pump and remote control.

2010

First Dust Controller with two Waterways V12

2017

V7: World's First UL and CSA Certified Dust Controller

The V7 is the world's first dust controller to be certified to UL and CSA standards.

Heating Kit

In the same year, the heating kit for the dust controllers is developed. With the help of this kit, all machines can control dust down to -10 degrees.

2018

New V22

The V22 is completely overhauled and also certified to UL and CSA standards.

2019

New V12s

The quiet V12s dust controller is completely overhauled.

The first hybrid dust controller: V22Orca

The V22Orca is the first dust controller for extreme weather conditions. When dust can no longer be controlled with water mist due to the icy temperatures, the V22Orca immediately produces snow – an absolute market innovation.
