Established in businessof copula construction for 50 years
Herp Gießereitechnik GmbH was founded by the two shareholders and actual managing directors Mr. Rolf Hengstenberg and Mr. Frank Wondra in the beginning of 2010 as the following company of Herp Industrieanlagen GmbH. Both of them have been working in leading positions at Herp Industrieanlagen GmbH.
Herp Industrieanlagen GmbH was managed by the single shareholder Dipl.-Ing. Bernhard Prazeniak and evolved out of company Freier Grunder Eisen- & Metallwerke GmbH, which was investigating cupola technology already in the 1920 ths. At Freier Grunder Eisen- & Metallwerke GmbH Mr. Prazeniak was the leader of the cupola development and construction department. Thus, practically spoken, Herp Gießereitechnik GmbH can look back on over 50 years of experience in the field of cupola furnace development and construction.
Herp Gießereitechnik GmbH is running its technical construction office at Alte Poststraße 1 in 57258 Freudenberg – Germany. The global field of operation is mainly concentrated on central europe.
Our business activities involve complete hot and cold blast cupola furnace systems including raw material handling, charging, cupola and gas cleaning units (wet & dry) as well as all other additive subsystems such as blast air and oxygen injection, shell and tueyere cooling, holding furnaces and systems for slag granulation (wet & dry).
The technical bandwith of our coke-fired cupola furnaces ranges from smaller cold blast units on the base of daily refractory renovation and a melting rate of 3 t/h over cold blast longterm furnaces with oxygen injection to larger hot blast cupolas equipped with integrated waste heat recovery and achieving a melting rate of up to 100 t/h.
Our well experienced team of technical experts will help you to design your specific cupola furnace system based on the local, technical circumstances always aiming to the economical and energetic optimized melting process paired with a high level on melting flexibility and process reliability.
In order to handle turn key projects with a global perspective to a greater extend Herp Gießereitechnik GmbH is linked to a reliable network of numerous partners in the area of mechanical manufacturing, design and programming of control systems as well as electrical and mechanical installations.
