RHI Invests EUR 2 Million at the Trieben Plant
The investment covers a new press with a pressing force of 2000 t and a milling system for the finishing of refractory bricks. These devices were commissioned in April. With this investment, the production capacity will be increased by 15 % to 63000 t of refractory bricks per year. The main customer is the non-ferrous metals industry, which uses refractories made in Trieben to line units for the production of copper, aluminum or zinc, thus protecting them from extreme temperatures (5/2012).
