POWTECH

Pow(d)er meets Hightech

September 2022, the world’s leading trade fair for innovations and further developments in processes that produce and process quality products from powder, granulate, bulk solids and liquids will take place in Nuremberg. 

Explosions for safety?: The REMBE Research + Technology Center (RTC) performs live explosions to see and feel the effects of dust explosions very clearly. The demonstration presents the functionality of autonomous protection systems on real industrial plants.

Visit us at POWTECH 2022 and experience controlled live explosions on the outdoor area (Ladehof 3A/4A) daily at 12 and 16 o’clock, including spectacular boom and fire effects.

In the immediate vicinity you will also find us in the exhibition hall at booth 3A-242 to reach out about all possibilities around explosion tests and battery safety.

It´s RTC Birthday

Exactly 5 years ago, on April, 1st 2017 our company was founded. Everything started with a small test facility in a garage on the site of former Rekostein in Brilon-Thülen. During this 5 years we grew constantly, got accredited as test laboratory in accordance with DIN 17025, extanded the test portfolio up to battery safety test and a lot more. To be able to offer our customers a „all-round carefree package“, RTC will keep establishing itself to cover all increasing requirements to research, development and testing. Therefore, the company will be separated into 3 divisions. Division „Research + Consulting” and “Sales” will be leaded both by our managing director Roland Bunse. The third division, our already existing test laboratory will be managed by Dominik Becker as new Chief Technical Officer. This separation gives us the possibity to offer our customers a wider range of tests.

Competence Centre for Battery Safety

From now on, the RTC is also a competence centre for battery safety which is a new advantages for our customers. Thermal Runaway and Abuse tests can be performed in large scales. Additionally arc discharges In or with different housings are possible.

May 2021

Successful surveillance audit acc. to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018

The RTC successfully completed the DAkkS surveillance audit for the accreditation of the flexible part acc. to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018 The accreditation will be prolonged until futher notice.

April 2021

Installation of brand-new sanitäry facilities

To fulfill hygienic requirements, the RTC installed new sanitary facilities incl. possibilties to shower on the test area. Both, colleagues and customers, are able to use those.

March 2021

Hydrogen explosion under pre-pressure

The RTC successfully simulated hydrogen explosions in an one-cylinder test engine in March. Specteculare records about the explosion event could be documented with high-speed cameras. The required results by the customer have been obtained.

January 2021

Dominik Becker becomes test representative

Based on the successful examination and certification as DGQ-Laboratory Manager ISO/IEC 17025 and with intense instruction and training at RTC, Dominik Becker (B.Sc) became RTC test  representative.

March – August 2020

Investigations about internal arc discharges

In cooperation with Fraunhofer ICT and international customers, tests on oil-filled transformer and electical systems, has been carried out. The RTC has been able to rebuild realistic and extrem high energy input from internal arc discharges in high- and middle voltage systems with pryrotechnic priming chargers. A large reduction of costs on the test procedure could be performed for the customer. New protection concepts could be developed and proved.

Juni 2020

Laboratory Management Training completed

After participating the DGQ-Training Laboratory Management ) I and II in acc. with ISO/IEC 17025, the RTC employee Dominik Becker (B. Sc) completed successfully the necessary examination and certification as DGQ Laborator Manager ISO/IEC 17025. Perspectively the designation as a test representative for Dominik Becker will follow.

May 2019

New premises by office and conference container

The area of the RTC test site has been improved by providing new premises with office and conference containers. The successful shorten of the distances optimized the test execution.
