In and Out in No Time

Time is money. This logistics maxim goes double – or even treble – for drivers in the dairy industry. The faster they can transport milk from milk producers to dairies, the more lucrative their daily routes will be. This is where the TIGER measuring system comes in – and remains for the long haul. It is MID certified and operates faster and with greater precision than comparable systems on the market.

Everything under Control

The production of pharmaceuticals and vaccines, as well as the preparations involved, is a complex process and requires maximum levels of precision, purity, and equipment safety. There is no room for error in any aspect of the process—there is simply too much at stake. Control components for (production) processes, in particular, must conform to strict standards. BARTEC, an expert in hazardous-area safety, has collaborated with its customer GfS Automation, an industrial automation specialist based near Frankfurt, to develop and supply a switchgear for use in Ex areas in Covid vaccine production.

Safely Tapping Oil Wells

Oil leaks are damaging – not only to the marine ecosystem, but also, of course, to the reputation of the pumping company involved. Keeping crude oil safely in the pipeline at all times is, therefore, absolutely essential. This process is known in the industry as “blowout prevention”, and the electronics involved are controlled by special switching cabinets – which are installed in extremely tough conditions. BARTEC assembles these for its customers.

Visualizing Systems Safely

For its technology center in southern Germany, Boehringer Ingelheim worked with BARTEC to develop a safe, cost-effective visualization solution that sets new benchmarks in hazardous areas.

Smooth Takeoffs and Landings in Sub-zero Temperatures

Iced-up or snowed-in flight decks are a considerable problem for helicopters, in particular when it comes to performing risky take-off and landing processes on ships. De-icing the decks, which can be carried out manually or by using technical means, is imperative in such cases. One option that is both efficient and effective is BARTEC’s MSB heating cable, which features halogen-free insulation. Unlike commercially available heating cables with fluoropolymer overjackets, it does not release toxic gases if ignited.

Improving the Productivity of Existing Chemical Plants

Potential for optimizing automated production processes frequently lies in the human-machine interfaces used. Increasing the efficiency of equipment operations contributes to an overall improvement in production.
