CHRISTIAN STÖHR GMBH & CO.
ALMOST 100 YEARS OF TRADITION – THE HISTORY OF OUR COMPANY
In 1925 the company was founded by Christian Stöhr with 100 borrowed Reichsmarks. With his products he supplied electrical industry. His customers were enterprises such as Siemens, AEG and Lindner.
During the succeeding years, the electrical and metal processing factory prospered, not only due to high flexibility but extraordinary innovations such as electrical lighters or beekeeping components.
After the DM was brought onto the market in 1948, very good foreign contacts developed. In 1950 the perforated plate for indicating pins was used as base for the first hair curler. The increasing demand made way for the patented “Filigran – Wickler” and “Filigran-Roller”.
In 1959 the first extruded polyethylene hair curlers were produced. The product range has been expanded and improved since then.
The self-developed extrusion process made way to all different kinds of products, such as doormats in 1976, snow-car-starting-aid in 1978 or the prickly slug-defense-beet-fencing.
Today our company is operated by the third generation and holds its ground on global competition.
Our products and our manufacturing process are self-designed in our research laboratory for mechanical engineering.
Our aim is prompt and flexible customer fulfillment.
ECOLOGICAL SEWAGE TREATMENT – MBBR (MOVING BED BIOFILM REACTOR)
Ecological treatment solutions answer to a new responsibility for our environment. The most effective and cost-efficient is the use of specially developed carrier material in aeration tanks.
by Stoehr is the perfect example for functionality of this treatment as an alternative to chemical treatment or commercial trickling filters. This procedure method has already been successfully applied all over the world.
The special grid structure offers maximum surface for biological lawn growth. Due to minimum weight and an enormous mechanical load capacity, a cost effective and quick increase of output can be provided – for almost all systems. These advantages especially apply when are used as floating and trickling filters (clusters).
Aquaculture or Aquafarming is the farming of aquatic organisms such as fish, crustaceas, molluscs and aquatic plants under controlled conditions.
Aquafarming can take place in simple garden ponds, on hatches in a Scandinavian fjord or in a highly engineered tank circulation system.
Due to overexploitation of marine species, the demand for aquaculture products is growing constantly.
In a recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) the water purification system must be integrated. Waste water is cleaned undergoing various stages of treatment and finally led back into the aquatic tank or vessel.
After leaving the fish tank the water is treated for solids before entering a biofilter here biocarriers are applied.
During the biological treatment process ammonia is converted into nitrate, afterwards the water is denitrificated. The water then is degassed, oxygenated and sterilized and eventually recirculated.
To offer a maximum face for a natural, biological biofilm-growth can be applied in floating or trickling filters (clusters). The media has been optimized for the use as biofilter. provide high flow-rate. The circumferential helix with inward-looking lamellae allows irrotational flow and increases the amount of shielded surface which facilitates microorganisms to grow even in shadowed flow-zones.
The choice of adequate material can reduce costs and helps to increase the effectiveness of a system considerably.
CULTIVATION OF ORNAMENTAL FISH
The appropriate keeping of ornamental fish especially Koi is a very complex matter. Most important are high water-quality and a maximum denitrification rate.
biocarriers applied as biofilters in rotating filters and filter pumps are the most efficient choice.
The special grid structure offers maximum face for a biological lawn, which provides the most effective denitrification.
Our biocarriers offer a multitude of other applications. carrier material is already successfully used in biogas plants as carrier of the biofilm under anaerobic environment, for gas scrubbing, exhaust air purification, exhaust gas cleaning and cooling.
For these forward-looking and steadily growing sectors, our is a good choice – it is reliable and sustainable
