After IFAT 2018

May 2018 | IFAT 2018

We are back from the IFAT 2018 event where we gained many experiences. The trade fair was held at the Munich international fairgrounds from May 14 through 18, 2018. The IFAT is considered the leading trade show for the water, wastewater, waste and raw materials industry.
141,000 visitors ( demonstrated the high level of interest in these topics.

At booth 243 in hall A2, in addition to the proven KSR step screen, KUHN GmbH exhibited a hydraulically optimized rake for smaller channels with a flat installation angle, the KHU SL, and a model of the KHU BXL multi-rake screen. The washing press product range in the form of a  KWP HD was demonstrated for screenings treatment under extreme conditions. 

In addition, we were the only supplier to present a complete, ready-to-install Archimedean screw pump.. KUHN GmbH can look back on more than 40 years of experience in this field.

Advised by our knowledgeable trade fair team, interested visitors could obtain information about the machine portfolio or discuss planned projects. The popularity of the KUHN brand was evident on Wednesday and Thursday, when visitor records were achieved on both days. Overwhelmed by this positive response – whether by gaining new contacts or existing customers stopping in at our booth – we would like to thank all visitors for their high level of interest and for the stimulating and intensive discussions.

Of course, we are always at your disposal for any questions about water, and look forward to doing business with you.

40 years archimedean screw pumps

March 2018 | Four Decades of KUHN Conveyor Screws

The KUHN company will be marking a special anniversary in 2018:

Forty years ago, in 1978, the first Archimedean screw pumps left our production line and were shipped to the Franconian city of Scheinfeld. Two Archimedean screw pumps with a diameter of 600 mm and 800 mm and a total length of 7 m were installed at the sewage treatment plant in Scheinfeld. At the time, KUHN was breaking new ground with technical dimensioning and qualified manufacturing of systems with very low measurement tolerances. At the same time the principle of the Archimedean screw pump had been acknowledged as a proven method for thousands of years.

Due to increasing growth of industrial production in the 1960s and 1970s, more and more rivers and lakes had begun to collect waste effluents. For the first time, environmental protection and the construction of wastewater treatment plants experienced a period of high growth, because the necessity of protecting the basis of our human existence had apparently been recognized. The construction of wastewater treatment plants revealed the unique advantages of Archimedean screw pumps. Their unbelievably sturdy design, safeguarding against dry running, resistance to clogging, maximum energy efficiency ratios, which can never be achieved by centrifugal pumps in wastewater, and their long service life created strong demand for this technology.

KUHN recognized the opportunity this offered and expanded its production capacity.

Today, KUHN is the largest German manufacturer of Archimedean screw pumps, which have made a considerable contribution to the business success of KUHN GmbH. In addition to production of these machines, the company also specializes in modernizing existing screw pump lifting stations. Our specialists at KUHN have worked out a number of procedures for doing this and are able to offer tailor-made solutions for every modernization project. Our goal is to develop an economic solution for each individual case that optimally fulfills unique customer requirements. The frequent positive feedback we receive from satisfied customers testifies to our success.

We look forward to receiving your order so that your Archimedes screw pump lifting station too will continue to work reliably for another 30 years.
