FG Industrial Newsletter

Dear Readers,

the times are no longer normal, because the coronavirus affects all areas of life. Worry about one’s own health and that of family, friends and colleagues at work affects us all and is at the forefront. In the current situation, “the health of all of us has top priority”! That’s why, within the Filtration Group, we work daily to make the world a safer, healthier and more productive place. Because only in this way can we emerge from this crisis stronger together.

I am pleased to present the second edition of the Filtration Group Newsletter to you today. Let me begin with a brief introduction of myself.

In November 2019 I took over the function of Director of Key Accounts for the industrial business of the Filtration Group. Together with our Key Account Management Team, my goal is to focus the Filtration Group even more strongly on key customers and their markets. In the future, we want to understand these customers even better in order to be able to respond even more closely to their needs and thus become a preferred partner in filtration. I am especially pleased to work with a highly qualified and motivated team to fulfill our mission.

In this newsletter we report on an application in foundries where a dust collector is used to extract ceramic dust. In addition, we are pleased to present the various application areas in which we can be active as a Filtration Group. This month’s example is a global specialty chemicals company with which we have a key market. News and interesting facts about patents and the Filtration Group round off this issue.

I wish you, your family and your friends all the best!

Stay healthy!

Whether in the ICE or Airbus, in the laboratory or in the X-ray machine. Complex and filigree metal castings have been produced for more than 70 years using the so-called lost wax process.

This is how the glue is made!


The purchase of new tiles is usually characterized by euphoria. The joy of bringing a breath of fresh air into one’s own four walls exceeds all the efforts involved. In the case of tiles, extremes are currently the trend. In modern bathrooms, large-format tiles are an important design element. A modern tile adhesive is needed to ensure that they stick to the wall for a long time.

Under the protective umbrella of the German Navy every ship is safe


Whether container ship, oil tanker or freighter: bilgewater accumulates on every ship. This leads to a considerable disposal problem, because before the bilgewater can be discharged into the sea, this explosive mixture must be intensively treated in accordance with the requirements of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO).
