Agitating technology for Intermediate Bulk Containers


SCHÄFER Container Systems and PROMITEC join forces

Neunkirchen, 6th July 2021. For various segments in materials processing industries, intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) and stirring devices are essential equipment. They are used for process engineering tasks in the production and processing of liquid and paste-like foods, cellulose, pharmaceuticals, chemicals and cosmetics. This gives rise to complex questions that have to be answered individually for each particular application. That’s why SCHÄFER Container Systems, the manufacturer of container systems for beverages, IBCs and special containers, and the agitator manufacturer PROMITEC are jointly pushing the sale of their products. This sales partnership is primarily aimed at serving customers in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. At the international engineering fair MSV 2021 from 8th to 12th November in the Czech city of Brünn, both companies will be attending together.

Following the principle “Partners for Customers’ Processes”, SCHÄFER Container Systems and PROMITEC will now be pooling their efforts to help with process development and process optimization of agitating tasks. To do so, there is a wide selection of individual agitator and stirring device designs, systems and components which can be combined with a vast number of different container solutions

“Agitator technology has a lot to do with passion, because the tasks our customers set us are exciting and technologically challenging – 90% of all agitators are individually designed and delivered. However, every agitator also needs a suitable container and that’s why the sales partnership with SCHÄFER Container Systems is of great strategic importance for us,” says Thomas Wegner, Manager of International Sales at PROMITEC Prozessmaschinen und Industrieanlagen (Process Machines and Industrial Installations).

Christof Ermert, SCHÄFER Container Systems’ Sales Director for IBCs agrees: “Containers and agitators simply belong together. In many cases, our customers’ products need permanent agitation to prevent deposits, for instance, or to stop already mixed substances from separating. That can only work when products are constantly agitated during production, transport or storage. Cooperating with PROMITEC enables us to expand the range of agitators which can be combined with container solutions from SCHÄFER Container Systems. So we can now provide our customers with agitator testing in PROMITEC’s technical centre, as well as on-site agitator trails the Czech republic and Slovakia.”
