"RHEWUM goes America" - new contact for North America

Meike Schulz, RHEWUM GmbH

Since February 1st, 2020 Sean Koontz is the new Sales & Service Manager for RHEWUM customers in North America.

The largest fertilizer manufacturers come from the USA. This is because the country is, beside China and India, one of the most important phosphate producers. Screening machines from RHEWUM are excellently suited for classifying fertilizers. Thanks to our long experience we are well versed in the processing of difficult to screen products.

One such difficult product to screen is urea. There the difficulty lies in the hygroscopic behaviour of nitrogen fertilizers. These bind the air humidity, mostly in the dust content. These dust components of the nitrogen fertilizers adhere to the sieve cloths and seal them over time, unless the sieve shakers have a well-functioning self-cleaning principle. By means of the beater bar movement the RHEWUM screen cloth is excited to high frequency vibrations. Thus the adhesive forces of the particles are overcome and the screening fabric remains free of residues. This technology is not only perfectly suitable for screening urea but also sugar, salt and potash.

We at RHEWUM are sure that there is a specific screening machine for each application. Therefore already an American battery manufacturer from Bethel, Connecticut, relied on a screening solution from RHEWUM in Remscheid. Because our international customers know: Screening machines "Made in Germany" are precise, reliable, powerful.

In order to better serve our American customers and to offer them an alternative to the locally known manufacturer we from RHEWUM now have a direct contact person on site. Our employee Sean Koontz is a mechanical engineer and Bachelor of Applied Science. He is very familiar with process engineering both in theory and practice. For a long time he worked as manager at Alexanderwerk Inc. in Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania, a partner company of RHEWUM GmbH. We are sure that our customers will benefit from his expertise in the future.


Let Mr. Koontz advise you now without obligation and without delay:
