Weber Ultrasonics wins the 2015 "Aktiv gegen Stigma" integration prize

On Wednesday, 13 January 2016 at 7 p.m. the awards ceremony for the "Aktiv gegen Stigma” (or Active Against Stigma) integration prize was held in Karlsbad-Langensteinbach as part of the New Year Reception. The actual prize chosen by the Karlsbad Verein zur Förderung Betroffener von psychischen Erkrankungen (a charity which helps people with mental disabilities) was a unique sculpture made of black granite created by the artist Stefan Lenzinger. The 2015 Integration Prize was awarded to Weber Ultrasonics from Karlsbad-Ittersbach, a leading global supplier of industrial ultrasonic technology.

In keeping with the motto "Investment in the Future” the "Aktiv gegen Stigma e.V." charity had sponsored the integration prize in October last year. The prize was to be conferred on companies which create a working environment for their employees in which they feel appreciated and valued, thereby preventing psychological and physical illness by means of a positive corporate culture. In addition, the prize was focused on employers who are actively committed to shaping the company's working environment, creating a framework for people suffering from mental disabilities thus making it easier for them to lead a normal working life and also preventing psychological problems, thereby actively promoting their integration. The aim of the Integration Prize is to demonstrate recognition and appreciation of such activities as positive and successful examples, encouraging others to follow the lead of companies like these.

Weber Ultrasonics received the prize for its "... particularly effective and creative social contributions and further development opportunities for its employees in all areas of its working environment", an achievement summarised by the panel of judges which included Prof. Dr. Weisbrod, Chairman of the "Aktiv gegen Stigma" association, Mayor Jens Timm, Elke Wildenmann from the Business Development Association and Klaus Steigerwald from the Association of the Self-Employed in Karlsbad. "The company offers its employees a wide range of opportunities to shape their working environment in a way that maintains their health and promotes their well-being so that their private and working lives can be harmoniously balanced", explained Prof. Dr. Weisbrod in his laudatory speech at the awards ceremony when presenting the prize to Managing Director Nathalie Etienne.

The reasons why this prize was well-earned are impressive. The basis of the family-friendly working conditions are very flexible working hours and workplace options, flexitime and part-time working models and also semi-retirement arrangements. The health-related and social aspects are also prioritised at Weber Ultrasonics. Social commitment is not only part of the corporate culture, but also of the corporate strategy.

Weber Ultrasonics focuses fully on the individual in his or her social environment. In addition to effective and sound technology, this is the company's key to success. The company offers an above-average and wide range of all-year sporting activities in which families are included and which are also financially subsidised. Various team sports are promoted to encourage team spirit among the employees. The "WU Sports Group" has already successfully participated at various regional competitions such as the Karlsruhe B2RUN. Alongside sports programmes, the company also offers its employees and families cultural highlights as well as family and children's programmes.

The health concept offers all employees the option of an annual check-up by a works physician and they can make use of these appointments for a free health consultation. In 2014 the company launched an additional company health insurance scheme for its employees and their families, allowing them to supplement the governmental health care programme. This is subsidised by the company for its employees and their families.

Another extra benefit provided by the company is its savings scheme. The employees participate in the company's financial success through an incentives programme. Weber Ultrasonics supports the old age pension provisions of its employees with its own pension scheme.

The family-run company feels particularly committed to fulfilling its social obligations for society as a whole and its employees as individuals, and places great emphasis on a personal, human corporate culture, ensuring that employees are both happy and proud of their company. For this reason, employee orientation and loyalty are traditionally core elements of the company's management and are firmly anchored in its value system. The disadvantaged, people with a migration background or without completed educational qualifications as well as those who often fall through the cracks in society are given a chance. Many have taken advantage of these opportunities and are now members of the core team.

Weber Ultrasonics also actively promotes young people. Every year new trainees and Cooperative University students are taken on. School work placements allow young people to get insight into the world of ultrasonics – and for several of these this has been the first step on the path to a career in this field. Employees wishing to enter further training programmes are encouraged, and a large number of very young team leaders with managerial responsibilities can participate in individual coaching and further training courses.

Innumerable examples illustrate that this company is fully committed to the integration concept and lives in accordance with its principles every single day. Today, Weber Ultrasonics is not only a leading global supplier of ultrasonic technology for cleaning, welding and cutting as well as environmental technology and custom applications, but has also assumed leadership in creating exemplary working conditions.

Nathalie Etienne summarises: "To us these differences in age, culture, language and values mean variety - and it is exactly this variety that enriches us and spurs us on. The Integration Prize is a major achievement for us, as it symbolises our most important investment in the future – investment in people! "

Ultraschall erhöht Ausbeute von Biogasanlage

Testphase von Ultraschalldesintegrationsanlage erfolgreich abgeschlossen. Der Einbau einer Ultraschalldesintegrationsanlage in eine 700 kW Biogas­anlage der "Biogas Jena GmbH & Co. KG" beschert dem Betreiber eine Effizienzsteigerung von 12 %.

So lautet das Fazit einer sechsmonatigen Testphase, messtechnisch überwacht von den unabhängigen Spezialisten der Eurofins Umwelt Ost GmbH. Werner Waschina, Geschäftsführer der 2007 gegründeten Biogas-Anlage und schon länger von den Vorteilen der Ultraschalldesintegration überzeugt, hat es jetzt Schwarz auf Weiß: "Auch wenn Kollegen bisweilen von Hokuspokus sprechen, erkennen wir die handfesten Vorteile dieses Verfahrens, gerade vor dem Hintergrund stagnierender Vergütungen." Biogas Jena hat die Versuchsanlage inzwischen übernommen.

Die Ultraschalldesintegration optimiert nahezu alle Anlagenparameter. So wird durch
die Steigerung der Biogasproduktion selbst bei reduzierter Substratzufuhr der gleiche Energieertrag erzielt. Die Fermentationsdauern verkürzen sich und der Eigenstrom­bedarf, zum Beispiel für die Umwälzung, sinkt. Selbst unter Berücksichtigung gleich bleibender Einspeisevergütungen und steigender Rohstoffpreise, sowie nach Abzug von Wartungskosten und Abschreibung für die neue Ultraschallanlage, verbleibt den Betreibern der Anlage in Jena ein deutliches Plus. Ein überzeugenderes Motiv für diese Investition gibt es nicht.

Den neuen Systemen liegt ein Verfahren zur Klärschlammdesintegration zugrunde, das in mehrjähriger Zusammenarbeit mit dem Fraunhofer Institut entwickelt wurde. Die durch die Desintegration freigesetzten organischen Substanzen sind sowohl dem anaeroben als auch dem aeroben Abbau leichter zugänglich. Ebenso wirkt sich die erhöhte Enzymaktivität in unterschiedlichen Milieubedingungen positiv aus. Das Verfahren von Weber Entec ist aktuell verfügbaren Prozessen in vielfacher Hinsicht überlegen. So überzeugt es unter anderem durch lange Wartungsintervalle und hohe Betriebssicherheit.

US-Patent for
SONOPUSH® MONO HD®

Heavy Duty SONOPUSH MONO HD® rod-style transducer from Weber Ultrasonics patented for a wide temperature range

The SONOPUSH® MONO HD rod-style transducers from Weber Ultrasonics GmbH have always offered impressive operational reliability. And the Ittersbach-based company, one of the world's leading manufacturers of ultrasonic components, has now improved the temperature resistance of its heavy duty transducers even further and received international patents for this innovation. Depending on the usage time, the new SONOPUSH® MONO HD can withstand temperatures of up to 120 degrees Celsius. Alongside the extremely high temperature resistance, the innovative rod-style transducers also offer users from the fields of industrial cleaning technology, ultrasonic chemistry and environmental technology such as sewage sludge disintegration even more advantages. The benefits include a 20% higher power output compared to conventional transducers of the same active length, consistent omnidirectional sonic distribution and efficiency of over 95%. These key advantages allow processing times to be shortened and throughput increased, both of which contribute to a reduction in operating costs. Another advantage is the product's vacuum and pressure stability up to 10 bar.

Long service life and maximum operational reliability The SONOPUSH® MONO HD ultrasonic transducers are manufactured from a special titanium alloy, which guarantees a long service life. The use of just one sound generator also contributes to this long service life, as it minimises the risk of fluid penetration. And the special material used also gives the transducer a smooth surface over virtually its entire length, which helps prevent soiling from being deposited. Due to their small footprint, the new heavy duty rod-style transducers are also ideally suited to retrofitting existing systems and tanks. Absolute dry running security is also achieved in connection with ultrasonic generators from Weber Ultrasonics.

SONOPUSH® is a registered brand name of Weber Ultrasonics.

New high frequency generators and transducer systems up to 1 MHz

 
With its innovative 1 MHz and 500 kHz ULTRASONIC MICRO CLEANING (UMC) module generators, Weber Ultrasonics has created the ideal conditions for efficient and reproducible cleanliness in micro and nano- technical production. Photovoltaics, semiconductor technology, precision and micro optics, medical technology, the LIGA process, microsystems and nanotechnology - wherever highly sensitive surfaces and finely structured components are to be cleaned, the UMC module generators and matching transducer systems demonstrate their strengths: The removal of even the finest nano-scaled particles and film contamination from surfaces and from troughs within microstructures without causing damage or leaving any residue.

With power outputs of 250 or 500 Watt, the UMC generators are able to optimally adapt to individual cleaning requirements. At the same time, innovative high-tech components make it possible to achieve maximum performance while requiring a minimum of space: up to six 1 MHz modules can be integrated in one 19" housing. As a result, one single housing can hold a cleaning system with a total power output of up to 3000 Watt, thereby saving in production area.

The use of the very latest control technology in the new UMC generator guarantees maximum stability of all process-relevant parameters. The resulting high degree of efficiency of UMC cleaning systems guarantees absolutely reliable, reproducible and yet gentle removal of contamination.

In order to tackle a wide range of cleaning tasks in a safe and efficient manner, Weber Ultrasonics has added the 250 kHz module generator to its tried and tested SONIC DIGITAL series of digital ultrasonic generators.
