Frings is a modern, owner-managed technology company with a tradition dating back to 1878.
FRINGS was founded in 1878 by the entrepreneur Heinrich Frings as a production company for vinegar products in Aachen. However, the company quickly transformed into a technology company that supplied the entire industry with innovative production equipment and consumables.
Our values, according to which we act, have been transmitted and developed over several generations. The foundation of these values is formed by the principles of sustainability and continuity towards our customers, respectful and trusting dealings with employees and respect and appreciation towards people and the environment.
FRINGS has developed all important innovative process technologies for vinegar production.
In the future, biotechnology will play an important role in the industrial production of a wide range of products.
Since its foundation, FRINGS has always been very closely linked to developments in the food industry and yesterday and today, as an international plant manufacturer, we respond to the special needs of the industry and the respective markets.
In the "Chemical Engineering" sector, FRINGS has specialized in the development of system solutions for small and medium-sized industrial plants in the process sector using proven aggregates and plant components.
The best waste water is that which does not occur at all. Thanks to high efficiency and integrated water management, the modern process plants we sell produce very little waste water. This is environmental protection in practice. But if it cannot be avoided .... our robust wastewater treatment technologies can also be established in your company.
We develop and manufacture our products to meet industry requirements and the highest quality standards. We attach great importance to using only components in our products that have confirmed their fatigue strength and functionality in extensive tests. This means that you as a customer have vinegar plants with very low operating and maintenance requirements in use, which perform their service unobtrusively but with maximum efficiency for decades.
We supply process plants and package units with clearly defined interfaces, ranging from laboratory plants with a few liters working volume to pilot scale plants in the cubic meter range to large industrial fermenters with several 100,000 liters working volume.
In addition to aggregates and plants for the industrial production of fermented products, a series of modular laboratory bioreactors and smaller membrane plants for research purposes are available.
The portfolio is complemented by systems for upstream and downstream processing in the areas of media preparation, dosing technology, biomass separation and other process technologies. In addition, FRINGS also configures and supplies utilities and other peripheral plant components.
Industrial food production today is under high cost pressure and must still guarantee the highest standards of quality and traceability. Our machines and systems enable efficient manufacturing processes with minimized energy and resource consumption. High productivity, maximum yield, high availability, low maintenance requirements, ... and excellent quality of the food produced. With German engineering and creative process development, we make it possible to produce high-quality food despite full automation and industrial production. Especially plants for nutritionally valuable fermented foods, yeast products and non-alcoholic beverages are our core competence. Our products and technologies thus also serve the purpose of maintaining health and enjoyment.
Our main focus is on gas/liquid reaction technology and separation technology, especially solid/liquid separation and gas/liquid separation. In many cases, our apparatuses and plants enable transfer rates for gaseous reactants and optimal results in phase separation that have never been achieved before.
In the field of special apparatus and plant engineering, we also manufacture systems that we can design from the laboratory on the basis of miniplant technology. Ask us for more information!
As early as 1970, FRINGS developed the submerged aerator, a highly efficient aeration unit for aerobic wastewater treatment. With the market launch 50 years ago and with more than 12,000 submersible aerators sold in the meantime, FRINGS has established itself in the environmental technology market worldwide.
Over the decades, not only have submersible aerator systems been continuously optimized, but new processes have also been developed and compact wastewater treatment systems have been established.
FRINGS has been producing high-quality nutrients for fermentation processes for over 100 years. Intensive biological and physico-chemical monitoring in our nutrient production ensures consistently high quality with lasting profitability.
