Technology Finds its Way into Production

High-precision mechanical engineering, complex processes, challenging special materials ─ Kremsmüller is gaining a foothold in process technology.
Kremsmüller is in prime position when it comes to process equipment engineering. In recent months, the requisite infrastructure has been created for this purpose. While Kremsmüller is optimally positioned in terms of electrical instrumentation and control technology, and automation technology, the adaptations for the new production steps have now been implemented in the production halls.

To this end, a special scaffold tower was built for the process equipment, enabling trial operations to be carried out in a vertical position. In a complex but necessary undertaking, the finished apparatus had to be dismantled again and the components lifted over the hall roof using a special crane and then assembled vertically with the utmost precision. The trial operation serves to guarantee the planned values. Only after this quality assurance is the apparatus ready for delivery.

Kremsmüller is breaking new ground in this segment. In order to be able to serve a multitude of industries, it is necessary to establish strong partnerships with engineering consultancies. In the field of thermal separation technology, as is the case with thin film evaporators, for example, we have built up our know-how in-house. Thus, in cooperation with the other departments of Kremsmüller it is possible to offer a unique complete package without any interfaces.

All aspects of evaporator technology, including process engineering, feasibility studies and pilot plants, are completely covered by experts at Kremsmüller. The result is already apparent ─ the first projects have been successfully completed and further challenging projects are already in the pipeline.

H2FUTURE for green steel production
H2FUTURE for green steel production
Kremsmüller participated in implementing the voestalpine reference project
H2FUTURE is THE lighthouse project of voestalpine. The world's largest hydrogen test plant for producing CO2-free hydrogen has been constructed at the Linz site. H2FUTURE has received a lot of national and international attention, showing steel producing companies that there is after all an alternative to coal!

The 18 million euro project was mainly implemented by the core players, voestalpine, Siemens and VERBUND. Kremsmüller in turn received part of the performance volume from Siemens. Decisive factors in this were the local proximity of our Linz site and our expertise in the field required.

Kremsmüller is delighted to have completed this reference project to the customer's complete satisfaction. The services included production and installation of the pipeline construction inside and outside the H2 plant as well as assembly and installation of the equipment. The project is presented in detail in the video.

Economic efficiency and environmental performance of our industrial plants
Economic efficiency and environmental performance of our industrial plants
For the past year GLACONCHEMIE has been using a ThermoDec facility from Kanzler Verfahrenstechnik (KVT) and Kremsmüller. A short overview of the economic efficiency and environmental performance of the industrial facility:
The advantages for the customer are really self-evident. A by-product from the operational process can now be recycled on-site.

To date, the raw material has been sold and transported to the Benelux countries through approximately 700 - 800 truckloads, with logistics offsetting a large part of the added value. The material is now being used to generate energy and materials at the company's own premises, thereby saving approximately 600 tons of CO2 annually!

In fact, the environment is reaping a double benefit, since the ThermoDec process generates entirely manageable quantities of a harmless salt.

The industrial facility is also highly profitable for the customer as it will have paid for itself in a maximum of two and a half years.

Cool apprentice days in the country
Cool apprentice days in the country
Our new training concept APPRENTICESHIP + incorporates "more community" as one of its three main components. The apprentice days will definitely make an ideal contribution to fulfilling this goal.
Once a year the Kremsmüller apprentices take part for two days in workshops on a specific topic, where they also have time to get to know each other and interact. As in previous years, we went to Steyregg near Linz − the perfect green setting for a fabulous group event. Auch dieses Jahr ging es nach Steyregg bei Linz. Die ideale, grüne Umgebung für ein tolles Gruppenerlebnis.

This time the workshops were held under the motto "One for all, all for one". They included in-depth communication training that apprentices can make good use of in their daily dealings with each other, but also with their superiors.

The following points were covered:

  • Positive contact with superiors and colleagues based on partnership
  • Personal tools and first impressions
  • Basic principles of interpersonal communication
  • Active listening
  • Dealing with conflicts and how to avoid them
  • Etiquette and what I should pay attention to when dealing with superiors.
Many of the individual exercises also took place outdoors, which was still more fun in beautiful weather. The participants even went climbing together, which was highly enjoyable for everyone involved.

The opportunity of having all the apprentices together was used extensively. Current topics were addressed and company values conveyed. The young people were shown what was expected of them, and in return they were allowed to express their wishes. Gregor Kremsmüller provided a lot of first-hand information on what is expected of a family business!

All in all these were very successful apprentice days, which were brilliantly organized and presided over by the Schwechat apprentice coordinator, Philipp Lang.

Many more impressions of the Kremsmüller Apprentice Days 2019 can be found in the video linked above. Have fun!

5G in a Wind Tunnel
5G in a Wind Tunnel
The Kremsmüller telecommunications technology team in Schwechat has tested 5G mobile radio antennas in a wind tunnel.
What is 5G?
5G is a new communication standard, with speeds 20 times faster than the current LTE standard. The short latency time is particularly important for industrial applications. In an emergency, an autonomous vehicle that can evaluate data at 5G speed can trigger a braking manoeuvre within one centimetre of travel distance (!) at 100 km/h. In a situation like this, a human being travels 28 METERS due to his reaction time! A real safety asset that will save many lives! But 5G also makes medical applications possible. For example, before a patient arrives at the hospital, doctors receive spatial images of a probe from the paramedic in real time. 5G is the future and Kremsmüller is proud to be making its contribution to the next technological quantum leap!

Why Tests in a Wind Tunnel?
5G will not replace 4G or LTE, but merely supplement them in the initial step. Thus, additional 5G antennas will be mounted on existing mobile radio antennas. These weigh around 70 kg, are up to 2 metres high, and thus offer the wind additional, large areas of impact. Structural engineers must therefore decide whether the existing supporting structures are strong enough, whether the foundations need to be reinforced, or even whether a new mast should be erected. The basis for such decisions are the values obtained from the wind tunnel test, where speeds of up to 150 km/h affect the antenna.

Kremsmüller in all Aspects of Our Everyday Lives
Kremsmüller carried out these essential tests in Vienna in the 100 meter long climatic wind tunnel belonging to RTA - Rail Tec Arsenal in Vienna-Floridsdorf. It is the only plant constructor in Europe to be a regular guest there.

As with current mobile communications technology, Kremsmüller is also heavily involved in implementing the new mobile communications standard. Moreover, the activities of the company can be found in almost every aspect of our everyday lives.

There is a link to an interesting video of the wind tunnel tests at the very top.

The thin-film dryer perfectly staged
Kremsmüller was the only industrial plant manufacturer present at the Powtech 2019. Nevertheless, our attendance was absolutely justified, with the thin-film dryer from the field of process engineering being an excellent contribution to the pertinent subject!

To put this center stage as effectively as possible, a “holographic” presentation was shown at the booth which was well received by the public and caused many visitors to linger at the fair stand. The hologram can be watched in the video linked above, which also offers interesting insights on our trade fair appearance and presents an interview with Gregor Kremsmüller!

At the end of the day, attending the Powtech 2019 was a big success for Kremsmüller. Some excellent contacts could be made which have already entailed the submission of tenders. Thank you to the dedicated and friendly trade fair team for their work!

New evaporation plant for Agrana
New evaporation plant for Agrana
Kremsmüller process technology supplied the engineering power for the large-scale project
Kremsmüller was entrusted with the construction of an evaporation plant for the Agrana project in Pischelsdorf near Tulln. This plant is used to evaporate water from starch waste water. From the onset, the engineers of the Process Technology Division were involved in calculating and planning the components, apparatus, pipelines, and instrumentation and control equipment. Subsequent planning steps necessary to the project comprised the preparation of the plans and their implementation in the plant layout. Then the first apparatuses were assembled to reveal the colossal dimensions of the real plant. A moving moment for every technical project manager.

In the video linked above, Alois talks about his work on the project. In addition, interesting insights into the project are given on site

Superlative Containers for Borealis Schwechat
Superlative Containers for Borealis Schwechat
A separate motorway exit was even constructed for transportation
Again and again huge components depart the Kremsmüller production halls. As a result, extremely complex and demanding special transport operations are frequently called for. A particularly sophisticated transport has now hauled two 90 tonne containers, each 4.1 metres in diameter, from Kremsmüller in Steinhaus to Borealis in Schwechat. A new motorway exit even had to be constructed at the destination to allow the huge containers to pass safely.

The containers themselves also offer a certain degree of ingenuity. Boasting a double-walled design, they are actually a container within a container, with an intermediate space of 12 millimetres. A coating of glass-fibre-reinforced plastic (GRP) with a minimum thickness of 2 millimetres was applied to form the shell. The containers will be completely buried horizontally in the ground at their destination to guarantee constant climatic storage conditions. Florian, our foreman in the workshop, can be justifiably proud of the work of his crew.

Impressive components and a splendid project, completed by our employees to the customer's complete satisfaction!

The Largest Container Ever Built by Kremsmüller
The Largest Container Ever Built by Kremsmüller
The largest tank ever constructed by us was erected in Lower Austria. The data alone are impressive: 40 metres in diameter, 17.5 metres in height and a total weight of 365 tons. A tank with these dimensions is not manufactured as a whole, but in so-called "shots", i.e. individual elements (rings). These are then deployed one by one. To do this, 40 hydraulic jacks positioned around the container lift it by 2.5 meters, after which a new "shot" is inserted. Each of these "shots" in turn consists of many sub-segments. A total of more than 32 consignments were required to deliver all the components of the tank.

Kremsmüller has already built many large containers and tanks, some with a diameter of 24 or 26 metres, but the 40 metre diameter of the new tank and its capacity of approximately 22,000 m³ set new records. The embedded video above presents some impressions of this remarkable tank.
