With more than 40 years of experience, Scherzer provides the planning and turn key construction of plants for handling and storing liquid and gaseous products.
We offer our customers ground-breaking technology and high-quality standards as well as the ability to address custom applications, while optimising the economic and environmental aspects of our designs.
Our portfolio covers a wide range of services, allowing us to meet almost every requirement. In addition to constructing hydrocarbon plants, we also provide retrofits, conversions or expansions, for the loading and unloading of railcars, tank trucks and ships, and for transshipment of:
Our comprehensive range of services include:
Our On-Spot rail car loading facilities are used to fill rail-bound tankers with liquid products and are designed for high-filling capacities. Filling pipes of up to DN 300 provide for loading capacities of up to 1,000m³/h per loading point.
Several products can be loaded at one station. To operate a double-track loading facility of 20,000t per day, only one or two operators are needed in the control station as well as one or two additional helpers.
The concept of On-Spot rail car loading facilities meets the highest requirements in terms of fire protection, operational safety and user-friendliness of the complete automated plant. They are also custom-tailored to the customer’s individual needs in compliance with the applicable national standards and regulations.
Scherzer’s On-Spot rail car loading system features a sophisticated electronic control and interlocking system, which minimises filling, setting and shunting times and operator error.
A standard filling pipe of 730m³/h filling capacity and four filling stations can transfer up to 2,920m³/h. In less than 15min, four rail cars of 73,000l each can be loaded on average, including the necessary setting time.
Scherzer is also specialised in the loading and unloading of liquid hydrocarbons (LPG) with an ambient temperature up to -60°C.
Our road tanker filling systems are designed in accordance with economical and ecological aspects. Constructed at roofed filling places, the systems are designed for handling hazardous products and have a filling rate of 2,200l per minute.
The system also features a control and data recording system, which allows the operator to release all functions. No mal-operation or manipulation is possible, and loading documents are followed and processed in a central measuring station.
Systems for loading and unloading inland and ocean going vessels, along with the associated jetties, are designed according to the prevailing local conditions.
Articulated steel pipe loaders or hose securing systems with drift safeguards and safety separation systems are used as transfer stations in order to prevent the product from penetrating the waters.
The products are loaded and unloaded via combined pipe distribution system to the tanks and/or the tanker. The distributor is then drained after each loading operation by means of a residual draining system.
