Industrial Pioneer and Leading Technology Partner. From an original focus on waste heat boilers, the core principle “steam from waste heat” has been refined over a period of more than 170 years, then customised and perfected for a variety of branches. The products that Oschatz provides range from ammonia incineration reactors for nitric acid production through to coolers for steelworks and production plants for non-ferrous metallurgical processes. Since the 1980s, this technology has also been successfully implemented in power plants for incinerating waste, biomass, and residues from chemical and production plants. As part of the Christof Industries group of companies, Oschatz is now one of the world’s leading technology companies in these fields. We employ our own patented technologies in line with the specific requirements of each plant project, which guarantees our customers superior tailor-made solutions.
Technical Perfection in Every Detail. Every facility is unique. Be they waste gas cooling facilities in metallurgy, components for the chemical industry or turn-key power plants for deriving thermal energy from biomass or residues: every facility is planned individually and tailored to meet our customers’ exact requirements. Oschatz demonstrates the value of know-how derived from decades of experience and a passion for innovation: from the project planning stage through to the most demanding basic and detail engineering – our engineers develop innovative, bespoke solutions that draw on tried-and-tested Oschatz technologies (“from chute to stack”).
