Industrial Pumps World Profile
An ANDRITZ centrifugal pump installed in 1954 to convey crude oil is still going strong. The technology features high reliability of service and long service life, as this example impressively demonstrates. After 65 years, the pump model is still operating perfectly.
The German state of Schleswig-Holstein has a long tradition of processing crude oil. One of these processing facilities is the refinery location Heide. Prompted by demand for fuel by the navy, building work began in 1940 in Hemmingstedt on the first continuously operating crude oil distillery. Two crude oil distillation plants were built with a total annual capacity of 100,000 tons and laid the foundation for Heide today as a refinery location.
In 1949, mining operations were shut down and extraction of oil chalk in Heide also came to an end as a result. The location was expanded and converted into a refinery only. In this period, Ritz Pumpenfabrik GmbH, which today is a part of the international ANDRITZ technology group, began delivering several centrifugal pumps to the site.
