Putting the new filling plant for ammonia gas into operation marks the completion of yet another phase in the expansion of the Gablingen site. As part of the process of constructing a new 412 m² production facility, the existing track systems at the site were extended in a phase that ran until this spring. In addition, a total of 350 meters of piping were installed along with various pieces of technical equipment.
Once the test runs were complete, the new plant was put into full operation in spring 2020. At the heart of the plant is a 116 m³ storage tank comprising a total of 5 filling stations. These filling stations are designed to fill containers ranging from 5 kg to 500 kg.
The Gablingen has a permit to store a maximum of 99 tons of ammonia gas.
The new filling plant in Gablingen replaces our existing plant at the Nuremberg site and allows us to expand the capacities we were previously able to offer significantly.
Ammonia gas is primarily used in hardening plants and as a coolant in applications including artificial ice stadiums and the food industry.
