Our Headquarters U.S.A.
On January 2, 2008, Flottweg Separation Technology, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Flottweg SE located in Vilsbiburg, Germany, opened a new sales, engineering, distribution, testing, and repair facility. Located in Independence, Kentucky U.S.A. (greater Cincinnati), our company is dedicated to new equipment supply, process solution development, and aftermarket parts and service support for all industries and applications in the United States and Canada. Since its opening, the facility has grown to nearly 40,000 square feet and is fully staffed with more than 50 engineering, technical, sales, marketing, and administrative professionals to assist our customers.
Our new facility inventories approximately $6 million in parts, rotating assemblies and accessories to serve our client’s immediate aftermarket needs. In-house aftermarket repair capabilities include, but are not limited to, machining, balancing, welding, and sandblasting to ensure the fastest possible turnaround time and minimal production downtime for our customers.
Flottweg Separation Technology, Inc. has opened six satellite sales offices to better support our customers on a regional basis. Located in the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest and West Coast of the U.S.A, our customers have an available regional contact in the same time zone. Two additional sales offices are located in Calgary and Toronto to directly handle eastern and western Canada respectively.
A smaller aftermarket sales and tech support office is located in Russell, Kansas, with plans to open another one on the West Coast in the near future. An aftermarket group of over 30 employees, including 20 full-time service technicians, are on call to support Flottweg centrifuges and customers coast to coast.
Centrifuge Unlimited, Inc. is the exclusive distributor for Flottweg parts and services throughout Canada. They have eastern and western Canada offices, located in the greater Calgary and greater Toronto area.
Process Solution Development
Our feasibility-testing lab located at our Kentucky Headquarters is utilized to develop processing solutions for existing and potential customers. Our facility features an in-house testing bay and laboratory. Our rental fleet currently features over 12 pilot-sized and smaller commercial sized centrifuges, as well as skidded systems and a fully enclosed, mobile demo container. All are available where larger-scale trials or on-site testing are required to validate feasibility and prove maximum processing effectiveness and efficiency under real-world conditions.
Our engineering staff stands equipped to design customized skidded systems featuring ancillary equipment such as pumps, tanks, flow measurement, piping, and complete wiring to ease installation at a customer’s site. We also custom design elevation stands to a customer’s needs. Flottweg designs and builds control panels on a project by project basis that are suited directly to a customer’s needs. The control panel offered is a complete solution to control all aspects of the centrifuge, as well as any surrounding equipment supplied as part of a package. Control panels are built locally to UL and cUL standards for acceptance in the US and Canadian markets.
