Award of the Environmental Alliance Saxony-Anhalt

15.11.2022

Yesterday the time had come: we were invited to the award ceremony of the Saxony-Anhalt Environmental Alliance. Various companies that applied with their project this year with outstanding entrepreneurial achievements in the field of resource efficiency were on site.
21 contributions were submitted. Three companies were nominated in each of the categories “Climate and resource-saving corporate management”, “Innovative environmental ideas” and for the special prize. After presenting the companies in an applicant video for the special award, Marko Mühlstein (Managing Director of the State Energy Agency Saxony-Anhalt GmbH) held a laudatory speech for the winning company. When he said it, it quickly became clear to us that we had won.

We are proud to announce that we have won the special prize of the Environmental Alliance Saxony-Anhalt 2022 with our project 'Rainwater collection system for water use for our stone processing centre'. We received a great trophy, beautiful flowers, a certificate and an oversized check with €5,000 in prize money. A cash injection that we can use well, because we are continuing to work on our overall project in order to be able to offer 3D modeling in different stone qualities (using rainwater) within a very short time in the future.

We will report in more detail once we have received the press photos.

Recently in the Naumburger Tageblatt: "Wear-resistant" future

09.11.2022

Establishment of a unique 3D configurator and construction of a new production hall mean a major development step for the furnace construction company from Balgstadt.
Here's the whole article
Thanks to Mr. Löffler for the visit and the nice conversation in advance.

Conversion of roof construction

31.10.2022

Here at the Balgstädt site, we are now in the final conversion phase to expand our business. We added a large production hall to an existing building. This provides sufficient space for the large components that can be coated and prefabricated on site in the area of ​​wear protection in the future. In addition, an existing warehouse was converted in this context to create space for our multifunctional CNC milling machine (stone processing center). This should be delivered and set up by the end of the year. It is the last piece of the puzzle in our plan to offer custom-made stones. In advance, we installed a 3D configurator in our online shop at schuba-shop.com.

So that there is sufficient freedom of movement for the new milling machine, our roof construction in the existing warehouse was dismantled and reinstalled (see pictures). We have thus created height and will be able to fully utilize all functions of the tiller in the future. We look forward to testing and reporting on these. The working area of ​​the machine is so large that we can process stone slabs measuring 3.50 x 2 m. However, small formats are also possible. We can place several of these on the worktop so that the machine can process them efficiently one after the other.

Custom stone cuts - simply order in our schuba-shop 3D configurator

25.10.2022

Interesting for industrial needs:

Here is an example of a somewhat more complex stone cutting. Our customer ordered from the stone configurator at schuba-shop.com and we were able to cut the stone directly. For comparison, the customer can view the 3D model during the ordering process and can be sure that everything fits.

Application for the prize 'Climate and resource protection as an economic success factor'

12.09.2022

We submitted a concept to the environmental alliance for a competition. It is about climate and resource protection as an economic success factor. We were accepted as a member of the environmental alliance in February 2021. Now we're in the final and hoping to win. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

The concept is about our new stone processing center. It works with state-of-the-art CNC stone processing technology, which results in high water consumption because water cooling is used here. We have therefore installed an intelligent rainwater utilization concept with fill level monitoring, which enables us to produce almost independently of drinking water. Due to the filter systems used and a recycling principle for the dirty saw water, only minimal amounts of waste water are produced. For this purpose, 9 storage tanks with a capacity of 170,000 liters were installed in the hall floor of our new building.

With the stone processing center, we are able to bring refractory and natural stones into the desired shapes and to provide them with individual bores and openings in the shortest possible time. If you need cut stones or shaped stones, visit: steinkonfigurator.de or go to the configurator in the schuba shop.

"Top Employer Construction 2022" seal of the Construction Industry Association

04.04.2022

In February 2022, we received the "Top Employer Construction 2022" seal from the Saxony-Anhalt Construction Industry Association. In addition, Giso Töpfer (CEO of the Saxony-Anhalt Construction Industry Association) was at our location in Balgstädt for the handover to our Managing Director Holger Schulz. A glass stele with the company logo and a certificate were handed over.

In order to obtain the seal, our company, Günter Schulz GmbH & Co. KG, was evaluated according to a 15-point catalog with various criteria. These were i.a. Working hours, further training opportunities, vacation days, equipping employees with personal protective equipment and IT technology, additional offers and also remuneration. We were able to achieve the required number of points to achieve the seal and are happy about this award. This shows our long-standing employees and new applicants that we are an attractive employer and that we have an excellent working environment.

Steel chimney in Chemnitz

16.03.2022

At the end of last year, the Chemnitz housing cooperative commissioned us to build a new steel chimney. With the help of a crane, the colored 13.5 m high chimney could be erected at the headquarters in Alfred-Neubert Straße in Chemnitz. Thanks to good coordination and the hard-working hands of everyone involved, the installation could be completed, checked and approved within one morning. In the future, this colored steel chimney will be used to discharge the smoke gases.

Thousands of fireclay bricks for a historic ring kiln

10.02.2022

The company Gillrath Ziegel- & Klinkerwerke GmbH & Co. KG is a family business that operates a Hoffmann ring kiln for the production of clinker bricks and clinker brick slips and thus operates the only ring kiln that produces in North Rhine-Westphalia. It is one of the last of its kind and dates from the 18th century.

You can find more information about the ring kiln itself at the following link:

https://gillrath.de/ringofen/

Our task was to completely demolish a furnace section in cooperation with the customer and then rebuild it. For our customer, keeping to the schedule was the top priority. With about 3 weeks of working time "around the clock" we were able to more than meet the scheduled schedule. During this time, thousands of fireclay bricks were installed. In addition to the straight course of the furnace, a section of the very complex "curve" was also renewed, including the entrance doors, flue gas vents and stoke hole openings (pipe openings in the ceiling through which coke is refilled and the fire stoked).

Condition monitoring masonry chimney

04.01.2022

In Bavaria, our chimney construction team was asked to monitor the condition of a 70 m masonry chimney. Our camera drone was used to reduce the risk to staff and the time spent on the exam. In addition, an interior inspection was carried out to check the inside of the chimney. The aim was to document existing damage. So it was possible to get a concrete overview of the overall condition and to make an even more precise offer for repairs.

The local customer is a company that we worked with for the first time. For this reason, we are all the more pleased about the evaluation with the following words: "fast, uncomplicated and competent". If our work is rated that way, then everything went well. Thank you for these words and to a good cooperation!

Take care of yourself and stay healthy!

20.12.2021

What a crazy year is coming to an end! Despite all the circumstances, we wish you peaceful hours with your loved ones. Make something special out of your Christmas traditions, enjoy a cup of tea or mulled wine in a cozy little group. Let the little beautiful things grow big during the Christmas season, so you can forget about everything around. Take care of each other and yourself!

Merry Christmas to you and your families

Welcome to the construction industry!

01.09.2021

On September 1st, 2021 we will be welcoming two new apprentices to our company. We look forward to starting a new training year together!

They will betrained as a bricklayer in furnace construction with us. There is a lot of variety in the 3 years of training. Various projects are waiting for our newcomers. Sometimes it goes up to chimneys, listed buildings or industrial plants and then again they work on ovens, incineration plants or even on mills. Boredom never arises!

From the engineering department

04.08.2021

In the south of Germany we were ordered to a graphitization furnace. First, an inventory was made. Originally it was 'only' about the renovation. However, it turned out that the existing technical documents were insufficient for the conversion and left some unanswered questions. So our engineering department was entrusted with the extensive calculations and the creation of a 3D model. The need for steel, for example, was ultimately higher than originally thought and could now be precisely determined. So there were no unwanted delays due to a lack of raw materials in the renovation. When the order was concluded, the steel tubs with a length of 21 m and a width of 2.20 m each were completely renewed. They were made by our steel construction company HSB and delivered on time for further operation.

Renovation needed

15.07.2021

A chimney in Finsterwalde ... Here you can clearly see the signs of the times. The listed masonry chimney is to be renovated. It stands on the site of the former cloth factory, which was built in 1889/1890. The buildings have been empty since 1990. A new cultural center with a town hall is currently being built there, into which the chimney is to be integrated as a monument. A challenging, great project that we are very happy to support.

The aim is to clean the 46 m high chimney, replace damaged clinker bricks and grout the masonry. Furthermore, the climb is to be revised and the old platform at the chimney head dismantled. In future, the chimney will only have a role to play in shaping the cityscape; it is not planned to use it again as an exhaust system. So it's going up high again for our employees. In compliance with all safety regulations and the client's specifications, hard work has been and is being done here.

Small format work

25.05.2021

In a Bavarian plant, a silo that is filled with abrasive raw materials was equipped with a wear-protected filling connection. This filling connection consists of a ceramic-lined, modified Storz hose coupling. Otherwise we line whole mills, but a sure instinct was required here. Because the flange has a diameter of only 65 mm and a height of 185 mm. The lining with aluminum oxide in this format was made to match and glued in place. This job doesn't take up a lot of space, but it does take time and a steady hand.

Vietnam - lining of ball mills

After a long wait for approval to travel to Vietnam, one of our experienced employees is on site. With compliance with all hygiene and quarantine regulations after the trip, he was able to start work on the construction site. The on-site job includes the professional lining of two ball mills. With detailed installation plans, precisely fitting aluminum oxide stones and the corresponding epoxy resin adhesive, he is well equipped and hard at work. He lines the cylinders with a thickness of 50 mm. The manhole and the corresponding cover will also be re-lined. The mills are used to crush mineral raw materials. The planned time on the construction site is several weeks.

Planning, delivery and installation of an exhaust system

19.03.2021

The project comprised the modernization of the exhaust gas unit on a gas turbine system, starting with planning, through to production, delivery and assembly.

The following areas were dismantled, newly manufactured by our steel construction and reassembled by our specialist staff from the furnace construction:

- exhaust pipes
- expansion joints
- Exhaust silencer
- Flue gas shut-off valves
- Heat / sound insulation pipelines
- System technology accessories and connection parts

The entire project took around 12 months from planning to complete implementation. Through transparent and close coordination with the customer, the planned time for the project could be adhered and the system was put back into operation as planned. A project in which we were able to use all of our skills in a targeted and professional manner. Herewith once again praise to all employees who were involved in the project! We are very satisfied with the project completion.

Takeover and completion of an order for relining a belt hardening furnace

24.02.2021

Our international customer - a manufacturer and developer of fasteners - commissioned us to reload a conveyor belt furnace.
Our tasks included the complete removal of the defective refractory lining in the belt hardening furnace and the storage of the demolition material in containers provided by the customer. However, the main focus was on the professional installation of a refractory lining in the belt hardening furnace in the areas of the ceiling, the side walls, the front wall (furnace entrance), the floor and the front wall (hopper area). The material was delivered at short notice and on time from our own warehouse and by one of our suppliers with whom we have maintained a good and reliable business relationship for years.

We are pleased that we have been repeatedly used as contractors for this customer and thank you for the good cooperation.

New lining of classifier - fast & precise

18.01.2021

A new order that we got delivered to the house. A southern European customer delivered a classifier unit, which was re-lined at our company location. A precisely fitting aluminum oxide lining was used as wear protection.

In small-scale manual work, this was assembled according to the construction, which we received in advance. This resulted in a fast, precise and timely execution, in compliance with all customer specifications.

Made-to-measure work: project completion at the Imerys Group

02.12.2020

At the end of November, we were able to successfully finish the lining of a ball mill with a diameter of 2.46 m for our customer of the Imerys Group.
Our work included the complete engineering, the provision of the necessary materials, the removal of the old mill lining, sandblasting work in preparation and the professional installation of a perfectly fitting wear lining made of aluminum oxide. Smooth bricks were used on the front sides. However, in the mill casing, shaft wedge bricks were used entirely. Our on-site employees delivered a precise result.


The customer's conclusion:
We are very satisfied with the work done in connection with the project of the new brick lining of the ball mill, all work was carried out as planned on schedule and in the required quality. In the end, the work was completed even before the specified deadline. The workflow went smoothly and the communication with the employees was always good and friendly. Overall, the total output performance of your company is definitely absolutely recommendable. Many thanks
