Plants and components for catalytic converter production

The complete spectrum

The market leaders have trust in Münstermann. We supply dryers and heat treatment units for the production of automotive catalytic converters and diesel particle filters to the large European producers. The unit types vary from dryers for the reactive layers in the catalytic converter, through combined dryer and kilns to ovens designed for temperatures up to 750 °C for calcination of the ceramic body of the catalytic converters.

With our expertise in the areas measurement and control and material handling we design, develop and produce complete plants, in which the individual steps in production are optimally adjusted for perfect operation.
