of a new, modern hard crushing plant in the early 1980's a first step
was made into a new era.
So today the various
crushers can crush mineral raw materials up to 500 mm to a particle size
to 40 mm.
In the hard material dryer these materials are dried to a moisture down
to about 0,2%.
connected grinding plant is capable to grind up to Mohs's hardness
9 (for comparison: diamonds have Mohs's hardness 10) and, via the
Mogensen sizer, sieve in standard grains of 0-1mm,
1 - 3 mm, 3 - 6 mm as well as in-between sizes. The capacity of
the grinding plant adds up to about 1.000 tons/month and shift with
the late 1980's the plant has been consequently equipped and modernized
with the newest equipment for production of unshaped refractory
masses and mortars. In the four modern and very flexible mixing
equipment approximately 1.500 tons of refractory masses and mortars
per shift can be mixed and packed in 10 - 50 kilo bags as well as
in big bags and loose in the silo.
bulk material boxes with a total capacity of about 30.000 tons were
built (80% of them roofed) as well as new storage warehouses with
a storage capacity of about 2.500 m2 to store multiple various raw
materials on one hand and to store our finished products until delivery
for intermediate storage on the other hand.
at the Dernbach triangle, far away from towns in the industrial area
of Rohr, the Concordia plant is surrounded by much green. When necessary
we can produce in three shifts without disturbing any neighbors.
grain sizes and monolithics we, of course, offer customer specific problem
solving solutions. Dr. Ludwig GmbH will also continue its business within
the clay industry, but somewhat definitely reduced.
In the end it was
only logical to move the administration, which until 2003 had its headquarters
in Koblenz, to the plant "Concordia" in Ransbach-Baumbach.
The young team is highly motivated and is very much interested to continue
the long tradition of the company and to secure the approximate 30 workplaces
