  • Products

  • All-round products in action

    Maximum safety, short ROI times, low running and life cycle costs, environmentally friendly processes, extreme load ranges, sophisticated production processes – the technological and economic requirements made of FIMA system solutions call for a high level of design expertise and engineering skills. Implementation areas include production plants in the chemical industry, refineries, liquid gas storage tanks, effluent treatment, laminating, sintered metal production, cryptogenic processes in the aerospace industry, high-speed applications, polisilicon production, transporting flammable and toxic gases, production of organic fuels and many more besides.
      • Radial Compressors

      • Our radial transmission compressors include single- and multi-stage process gas compressors, process air compressors and mechanical vapour compressors.

        In the integral version the impeller is directly mounted on the high-speed shaft. Alternative versions are fitted with intermediate bearings.

        FIMA is the acknowledged world market leader in low-volume radial compressors. This type of compressor is frequently implemented in chemical processing plants or refineries to return some of the flue gas to the process.

        Applications
        • Used as a fresh air compressor in the chemical and petrochemical industries to support processes in process engineering.
        • Used in sewerage treatment for air enrichment in clarifiers.

        Fields of application

        • Flow rate: 150-300,000 [m³/h]
        • Max. system pressure: 150 [bar]

        • Rotation speed: up to 35,000 [rpm]
        • Drive power: up to 5.0 [MW]
      • Hermetically encapsulated blowers and compressors

      • HETICO
        (Hermetic tight compressor)

        On this versions the impeller and motor are combined in a single casing to avoid the necessity of dynamically stressed gaskets between the processing area and the surrounding ambience.

        MACOUCO
        (Magnetic coupling compressor)

        In comparison to conventional machines, the MACOUCO version offers a high level of environmental friendliness thanks to the design principle on which the magnetic coupling is based.

        MAHECO
        (Magnetic hermetic tight compressor)

        In addition to these technical properties, the MAHECO versions are equipped with an active magnetic bearing that effectively reduces friction and wearing even further. Benefits: high speeds, virtually unlimited life span and improved efficiency.

In-house specialists test the quality of the processed metals as well as those at all stages of production. FIMA impellers are continuously improved in the company’s own R&D department, using for instance, CFD (computer fluid dynamics).
      • Process engineering

      • In Suspension Dryer FSD both process stages of solid/liquid separation and drying can be accomplished in one piece of process machinery. In order to dry products still damp from the centrifuging stage, Suspension Dryer FSD is always used and run in combination with a drying gas loop. Depending on the size and application between 150 kg/h and 3.500 kg/h of hot gas flows through the FSD.

        A gas supply system was specially developed for the FSD 400 and FSD 600 models that includes all components required for universal operation in a pre-assembled frame.
    • Service

    • Competent, customer-centric and flexible – FIMA service

      Companies focusing on the production of customized machinery need one thing above all else: qualified committed service teams at local level to ensure that you, the customer, get what you need. This includes installation, trial runs and commissioning, maintenance and modification work, and the seamless management of maintenance history files for all FIMA systems. The excellent reputation of our service is founded on two pillars: flexibility and customer centricity on the one hand, and on the other, handcrafted precision, responsibility and comprehensive technological know-how.
        • Outdoor assembly

        • From machinery set-up, commissioning and subsequent regular maintenance and repair, the FIMA service package covers the entire life span of the delivered equipment.

          We not only perform regular maintenance and repairs, but of course also take care of any required performance adjustments in the course of plant optimization. Our service technicians remedy unforeseen faults at short notice as reliably as we conduct training for our customers' operating and maintenance personnel, it's all part of our service.

          Wherever our service technicians and engineers are deployed in the field, they can rely on qualified support from our in-house team of experts. This applies both to fluidic and mechanical matters, e.g. in connection with vibrational or acoustic problems.
        • Repair, conversion, adjustment

        • Backed by many years' experience FIMA is also expert when it comes to addressing increasing demands for plant upgrades or prolonged life spans. In doing so, we incorporate the latest insights from ongoing development work on our machinery into all our overhaul and modernization projects.
          Our portfolio does not stop at our own products.

          Service for other makes

          At your request, we will also be happy to service machinery from other manufacturers. As plants grow old or an improvement in performance, availability or reducing environmental impact is called for, modernization and retrofitting is often a low-cost solution. Typical measures include:

          • integration of new impellers with improved performance data
          • improved shaft seals and reduction of seal gas consumption
          • conversion to improved warehousing systems
          • retrofitting with automated machine monitoring systems
          • reduction of noise emission thanks to appropriate soundproofing
          • improved paintwork and corrosion protection
        • Original spare parts

        • No matter when or to where machinery was delivered, we supply customers with the original spare parts they require in top quality, at top speed. This is guaranteed not least by the clearly structured processes maintained at FIMA as a certified company, also in its after-sales service.

          All processes are managed by our competent committed staff, from request processing through to shipping. Reliable spare parts supplying is guaranteed by a database with a seamless record of all previous repairs and spare part deliveries for every single machine sold by us.

          Aside from constant updating of service history files, we also attach importance to the thorough evaluation of the reports compiled by our service personnel. Based on the latter, we can make the customer qualified recommendations on which spare parts to stock, and forecast which maintenance jobs should be planned.

          Our strong customer orientation guarantees fair prices for you, at any time. To make sure we reach this goal, our prices are checked regularly. Despite all our efforts to reduce the prices, we stick to the high FIMA quality standards to fulfil the requirements of our customers.
