German Heat Treater Invests in New Endothermic Generator

Commercial heat treater OWZ in Aalen, Germany recently invested in a new endothermic generator;  “OWZ Ostalb bought a new electrically heated EndoFlex™ S endothermic gas generator to replace the company’s old generator. OWZ Ostalb is a commercial heat treatment company in Aalen, Germany, with which UPC-Marathon, one of Nitrex’s business units, has been in contact for several years.

“The customer chose us because we offered the most valuable product with the best-in-class gas mixing and control system, the EndoInjector™, and the highly efficient ReactionCore™ multi-retort system to deliver a reliable, on-demand supply of quality endogas, resulting in significant CO2 savings for their heat-treating operations,” says Daniel Panny, product manager at UPC-Marathon in Germany.

The EndoFlex™ S that was purchased is the electrically heated version with an air cooler, an automatic nitrogen purge system, and additional CH4 monitoring to meet the highest safety standards. The old generator had to be replaced because it had no automatic process control and was not able to control the dew point efficiency in situations where the ambient air changed too much. Furthermore, old components that were difficult or impossible to replace reduced the generator’s overall efficiency even further.”
