Baelz took part in the consultations on the possible EU-wide ban on PFAS. In conjunction with the VDMA and our industrial partners, we are trying to obtain important exemptions from ECHA for materials that are essential for us as manufacturers. You can find the full letter here.
Pure steam energy with a peak output of 10 megawatts for district heating in our hometown of Heilbronn. Everything is fully assembled, wired, connected to the control system and tested. Steam from the power plant in Neckarsulm is used to heat water for the new district heating network in Heilbronn, which is used to heat many buildings sustainably and to heat process water. A big step towards sustainable heat supply! Everything Baelz: From the customer-specific concept from the headquarters in Koepffstrasse, to the heat exchangers from our own production in Siegen, the control valves from the factory in Heilbronn-Biberach to the brain, the Pilot® control system. All together: Another Steam Terminal® using the Baelz-thermodynamic® process... albeit a very special one!
Keep going! The story continues: We are building two more containers for EnBW!
BAELZ attended the 35th China International Plastic and Rubber Industry Exhibition (CHINAPLAS 2023, Booth No.10G25) which was held at Shenzhen World Exhibition&Convention Center from April 17th to 20th. The "CHINAPLAS Exhibition" is currently one of the world's leading trade fairs for the plastics and rubber industry. At the show, we introduced control valves and variable jet pump technology that can be used for exhaust steam recovery to customers and potential customers in the rubber and plastics industry, laying a solid foundation for further promotion in this “hot” industry.
Three trade fairs in three countries in at least 4 weeks - that only works with a good international team! Because: Baelz does the conception and trade fair construction itself, in the sense of sustainability with almost no waste, nothing is left behind, nothing is thrown away. The energy saving trade fair in Wels/Austria has developed into a very fruitful platform in the energy industry, then the big ISH was held in Frankfurt/Germany and immediately afterwards we went to the BePositive in Lyon/France - these were intensive days with many old and new contacts. Thanks to everyone involved in the Baelz team and all visitors!
How long Baelz systems run and help to save energy was shown on the occasion of the anniversary competition "Oldest Baelz systems in operation". There were prizes to be won in the categories of heat exchangers, jet pumps and control technology, namely a gift box with delicacies from production plants that have also been relying on Baelz for decades: for example noodles from the Swabian Jura, pickled preserves from Wuerttemberg and gummy bears from the Rhineland. Particularly impressive is the winner in the field of control technology with an analogue Baelz controller from 1966, a plant in Casablanca! We were very pleased about the lively interest in the competition and would like to thank all participants.
We can benefit from a worldwide presence and start again with live fairs: Visit us, if you are around, at CHINAPLAS 2021 in Shenzhen - booth 10W29 - and discover the Baelz energy saving technologies as well as the reliant and long-lasting range of Baelz control valves and ejectors!

Size does matter - especially for pneumatic actuators
The new compact pneumatic actuator baelz 373-P11 can be used for many HVAC and mechanical applications and suits all Baelz valves with a spindle diameter of 10 mm, including ejectors. It is particularly suitable for small valves up to nominal diameters of DN 80 and, like its equivalent baelz 373-P21, it can run a full stroke of 22 mm.
Compared to the 373-P21, it is about 5 cm less wide and about 5 cm less high. The small volume of the P11 actuator is useful for compact systems where space is at a premium. The new P11 weighs in at only 2.1 kg and, like our other pneumatic actuators, it is made of high-quality die-cast aluminum 'made in Germany'.
Due to its simple design, the pneumatic actuator can be used for OPG operations (valve closed without compressed air) or for OPO operations (valve open without compressed air). This enables the OPG/OPO function to be selected during installation, without the operator having to disassemble the actuator.
The P11 actuator is maintenance free, and its longevity and reliability ensure high system availablility.
An international company uses an enormous amount of energy in its production process – especially in the generation of steam.
As steam generation is very cost-intensive, steam should be used economically, and surpluses should always be avoided. The previous steam-water transfer stations in the plant led the high-temperature condensate into open condensate tanks.
Here, the steam-water heat transfer stations from Baelz, a closed steam-condensate system without condensate tank, was recommended.
Baelz among the top 10
The highly sustainable cooling through excess heat, which was implemented by Baelz in cooperation with the Technical University of Berlin in the form of absorption cooling systems of various performance classes, resulted in Baelz being among the top 10 for the Industry Prize 2016.
This award, which honors industrial companies, recognizes the progress and economic, social, environmental and technological use of the products. This is assessed by a jury of experts.
