A warm welcome to all visitors and interested in OLOD technology.
Our story begins in 1929 when inventor Paul Schatz discovered the Oloid form as a new form, with the peculiarity of being one of the few forms that 100% unfolds its surface at inversion. Herein lies the lever for the high efficiency in the movement of liquids. With his research and ideas, he has given many impulses and you can track these processes on the side of the Paul Schatz Foundation, to alternative ship propulsion. The architecture was also inspired by the Heliodome "Sonnenhaus" by Éric Wasser. Other examples include the hand-operated internal mixer called Rhythmixx, the motorized 3D shaker called the TURBULA® mixer, and the inversion-inspired wind turbine called Vayu.
This technique in the form of our products OLOID Type 200, OLOID Type 400 and OLOID Type 600 has still a quite young history concerning the economic employment (1993 establishment of the Oloid AG, Switzerland, 2007 continuation by the Hortimax BV, Netherlands and 2012 reestablishment of the inversions -Technik GmbH, Switzerland).
Through our many years of experience we can say today:
OLOIDS can be used to homogenise large volumes of liquids in relation to the energy input (for example, with only 220 W, up to 10,000 m³ of water can be mixed) and also provide sufficient oxygen in many applications.
At first glance, this is so revolutionary that many experts initially react with incomprehension and skepticism. At the same time, the scientific investigation of this impulsive flow is so complex that the precise consideration of flow simulation is very costly. Nonetheless, we were able to achieve the first promising simulations with the help of our CFD specialist Benjamin Köpke. You can watch this on YouTube. We can offer further simulations with the help of the specialist for customer applications.
Historically, this has led, from today's perspective, to the fact that, especially in the fields of application where the effect becomes apparent, immediately after short tests, e.g. improvement of energy efficiency in pond treatment plants, reduction of algae in reservoirs for irrigation water or odour minimisation of compost leachate, which finds grateful customers thanks to OLOID technology. Often the combination of e.g. existing ventilation systems with OLOID products are a great way to stabilise the discharge values and save money. Further application of the OLOID technology for customers are, where it depends heavily on the power savings or where, for example, there is no power supply and self-sufficient solutions like the Solar OLOID are needed.
Thus, there are now experiences with the OLOID technology from Chile (wastewater) to Australia (pond rehabilitation) and in total about 1000 projects have already been realised worldwide. If you would like to visit a project, please contact our partners or us directly, or describe your application so that we can provide you with procedural feedback.
Legally, our company belongs to Neuguss Verwaltunsggesellschaft mbH and this goes hand in hand with the economic concept that the Inversions-Technik can not be sold in the long term and substantial income is available for further development. The aim is to improve and expand the cooperation with current and future partners so that a safe haven for this technology can be formed and at the same time the product can take on a sustained position in the market. In this context, we merged production in Berlin at alfred rexroth GmbH & Co. KG (also in the Neuguss Group) in 2015, so that there is also the possibility for service support, provided that there is no sales and marketing support service partners in the immediate vicinity.
We invite all responsible people for stirring processes in companies to talk to us and to examine together with us the energy saving and quality improvement that can be achieved with the OLOID in their process. Especially in areas where circulation is needed 24 hours a day and there are large volumes of liquid, often a saving of energy costs of over 50% is possible, so that the investment in the technology can pay for itself after a short time. That's why we were honored in 2016 by the German Federal Environmental Foundation.
We are looking forward to your contact.
