Company History

In the 1950s, the company's founder, Wilhelm Düchting began with the construction of a pump factory - from his existing company " Repair shops Wilhelm Düchting " - where he and his colleagues repaired pumps from neighboring industry, predominantly mining. A specialry (or focus?) very quickly resulted in the repair of pit pumps, ie Drainage pumps from neighboring mines.

With the know-how from repair the company had already built is own pumps a few years later. There was a high pressure series called HK 10, which very rapidly spread and is to this day the drainage pump of choice in the mines in the Rhine and Ruhr. In its heyday, the German coal industry had approximately 1000 DÜCHTING HK 10 pumps in use.

The series was expanded in the 60s with the  crowning achievement of the great HK 200 , from depths of 1200 m , the water could be lifted with a single pump. Thus also main drainage was born.

In the following years, DÜCHTING PUMPEN focused increasingly on more wear-resistant , single-stage pumps and had its first significant success in 1963 with the largest ever built double-flow Water Pump type PK 60.

Parallel to the pump industry of the founding of the company in the late 1960s opened already a rolling department that catered to the demand of the surrounding paper mills after rolling and accessories. Many years later, in 1998 , the head of this department was established in the company DÜCHTING ROLLERS service from the current senior , as little sister of DÜCHTING PUMPEN.

With time and according to the founder 's son, Dr. -Ing. Wolfgang Düchting in 1978 new series wear resistant pumps have been developed for the treatment of coal - PK , PD and ROWA , the former now exist only as spare parts supply. The tank pump DH was and is in the sense of absolute resistance to wear still the ultimate.

With the beginning of the environmental measures related to desulfurization and gas cleaning of fossil-fired power plants and industrial plants (1986 ) started a new boom for single-stage , wear-resistant pumps of DÜCHTING.

At the beginning of the 1990s PUMPEN developed a new non-metallic material , extremely resistant to wear and corrosion, particularly in relation to the application in the gas cleaning . This S. G. Mineral casting made ​​of silicon carbide which is bonded with resin.

For the production and processing of the material SiC Mineralguss society SICcast Mineralguss GmbH & Co. KG . was founded in 1996. DÜCHTING PUMPEN have had already large initial successes with this material, notably fail entirely at the pump for gas cleaning in waste incineration plants in which the corrosion- specific claims are particularly challenging and high-alloy stainless steels. In chemistry , especially in problematic corrosive and abrasive processes , the new material is just as safe input and displaces expensive metallic materials and sintered ceramic materials and also highly abrasive plastics. Were the late 90s , the pumps in flue gas desulphurisation of steel in SICcast initially installed in foreign investments , it is since the early 2000s and domestically increasingly all new installations.

On the high pressure pump sector , there were parallel to the single-stage pumps from SICcast also starting in 1990 an interesting development program in the home DÜCHTING.

The series of high-pressure pumps that feed the membranes were expanded and refined , redesigned the booster pumps in the pressure exchanger method and placed in the program . The requirements in the context of energy optimization and availability are put up here . Efficiency is writ large. Latest trends can be found in this process engineering input even at the single-stage pumps the material SICcast .

Another advantage is that one understands as a component manufacturer to the process of the plant . That was and DÜCHTING is always important !

In the present day , Dr. -Ing under the present incumbent firm managers . Carsten Düchting particular the worldwide marketing of the products of PUMPEN and SICcast forced, by new agencies worldwide, but also through its own offices and branches as in North America and Russia. Further steps are planned.
