Thesis

We want to grow and are looking for reinforcement for our team in Bovenden!

With inventiveness and passion, our employees develop and build thermal plants according to individual customer requirements. As a medium-sized technology company from the Göttingen area with locations in Bovenden (near Göttingen) and Böblingen (near Stuttgart), we offer a wide range of tasks in a dynamic environment. We combine over 125 years of furnace construction and technology experience with the challenges of the future, such as e-mobility.

Topic of the thesis

"Test and optimization of a cross-feed lock from a pusher-type furnace under near-production conditions"

Aim of the work

The efficiency of heat treatment plants often increases with the mass throughput of product. In order to maintain the necessary temperature-time profiles, the plant must be built to a corresponding length. However, this length is limited by mechanical conditions. In this case, it is possible to change the direction of the heat product by means of a transverse thrust in order to increase the overall plant length. This is done in the hot section of the furnace at temperatures of up to 1000 °C. Likewise, an atmospheric separation between two furnace sections can be realized by transverse thrusts with the help of doors. 

The company ONEJOON has developed a new generation of these cross-feeders. Before these will be used in a production plant, an intensive test under approximate production conditions will take place at the Bovenden location. The focus here is on the necessary movements at temperatures of up to 1000 °C, very good leak tightness and robustness even in the presence of major contamination. 

The aim of the thesis is to test and optimize the functionality of the developed cross-slides under near-production conditions. 

Structure of the work packages

  • Familiarization with the subject area of furnace construction with a focus on crossfeed and airlock technology
  • Familiarization with the subject area of conveyor technology in kiln plants
  • Planning, construction and operation of the trainer
