Site 2 remodeled from scratch

Ready for further growth

It took about one and a half years to plan and build the new facilities. About 2,5 million Euros have been invested. The result is a very modern production facility which in some parts set new standards in the industry.

The „new site 2“ is now for example equipped with one of the most modern liquid filling systems in Europe. „We have raised the sauna and hammam essence production to a unusual high standard in the spa industry. The production facilities are now  similar to those of the aroma and perfume industry including a partial automisation with a so-called dosing cluster", explaines Mike Eberhardt, authorised representative of the Chemoform AG. Mike Eberhardt was significantly involved in the modernisation of site 2.

This high-tech manufacturing plant includes 56 dosing valves which are connected to raw material containers. Thus, the plant has access to 150 available raw materials. The plant doses and weighs accurately to the gram all raw materials according to the respective formula. This process is fully automatised with PC and scanner based special accuracy weighting machines being part of this process. The result is impressive: The production output was multiplied by 4 and delivery lead times reduced to a minimum level.

Also for storage help new high tech applications to ensure a constant high quality level. All essences are stored in stainless steel containers and an introduction of nitrogen helps to prevent the essences from oxidising with the oxygen in the air.

The production of water treatment chemicals under the Chemoform and Delphin brand is still Chemoform’s core business. Part of the modernisation included the manufacturing plants for the production of these products. A significant productivity improvement was the result. Thus, the company is now able to manufacture up to 75 ton granules and liquids per day.

The target was not only to improve the site’s productivity but also to increase the energy efficiency of the facility. A highly modern air condition technology has been built into the facility. During summer, incoming air is cooled down to 22 C by a heat exchanger using the production’s water flow. Additional energy for a cooling device is not necessary.

During winter, incoming air is warmed up thanks to heat recovery. Furthermore, intelligent light systems using motion detectors prevent unnecessary energy use. "The modernisation required a lot of effort and money, but we can already see now that the investment pays off", concludes Mike Eberhardt.
