BHS-Sonthofen opens new, modern test center

BHS-Sonthofen has opened a new and state-of-the-art test center in Sonthofen/German with an investment of € 3.8 million. BHS will perform production-scale tests at the center on all machines and processes offered by the company. 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 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 42000 m3/h. 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 1720 m2, and the entire lot – including the exterior – is over 3000 m2. In comparison, the old technical center was only 935 m2. 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.
