BHS invested 3.8 million Euros in building the new test center and will perform production-scale tests at the center on all machines and processes offered by the company in the fields of mixing, crushing, recycling, and filtration technologies. “BHS-Sonthofen considers itself first and foremost a specialist that develops optimal process engineering solutions in collaboration with its customers,” notes Dennis Kemmann, Managing Director at BHS-Sonthofen. “This is where we set new industry standards with the test center. The center allows us to map various processes and chain individual machines into systems on a much larger scale than before, as well as enabling us to set up more units overall.”

For all BHS-divisions in the fields of mixing, crushing, recycling, and filtration technology tests with the customers’ material at the new test center will be performed. Compared to the old test center, the equipment was significantly expanded and modernized in all areas. The company has extensive facilities for mixing, crushing, and recycling as well as ultra-modern separation technology for the separation of various materials. There is a separate area for filtration that features a complete system with state-of-the-art process technology and end-to-end control. The system runs self-sufficiently. In the future, BHS will be able to test customers’ design ideas independently and accurately examine the filtration behavior. 

The investment also includes a highly modern dedusting system that far exceeds the requirements of the Federal Immission Control Act (BImSchG). The system has a suction capacity of 42,000 cubic meters per hour. All facilities are state-of-the-art in terms of their safety features. BHS worked closely with the district authorities to obtain the appropriate permits. The sewage system installed by BHS also clearly exceeds the requirements. All wastewater produced is treated in-house, and certain materials are discharged separately. The test center is housed on an area of 1,720 square meters, and the entire lot – including the exterior – is over 3,000 square meters. In comparison, the old technical center was only 935 square meters. The new hall is also completely closed off on all sides, which means that tests can be carried out regardless of the prevalent weather conditions. The test center will be up and running at the end of September.
