Herbert Haas, general manager of HEINKEL Foshan, sees great advantages: “With the opening of the new assembly hall our customers will benefit from technology and know-how `made in Europe`. At the same time our products will become more competitive and we will expand our local operations in China“.



Huge investment makes further growth possible

LEEUWARDEN Hardly anything remains the same at Jongia Mixing Technology in Leeuwarden, Netherlands. Creating is good, to inspire is better, is the motto at the mixer and agitator factory.

Written by: Irene Overduin (Leeuwarder Courant)
No stone will be left unturned at Jongia. The factory will be enlarged by 1500 m2 and will grow by approximately 40 percent. The renovation of the offices on the first floor is already in full force. 

All cubicles have been removed, the new office will be one big open space. ,,People emailed each other. They have to talk to each other”, says managing director Johan Postma about the employees. He himself will also have his desk here. During the Elfstedentocht (famous Dutch ice skating contest) the engineers, customer service, sales managers and the administration employees will be sitting first class: 50 meters further down the riders will enter the ice of the frozen Zwette.

Jongia (50 employees) is eighty years old and makes industrial mixers and agitators. The agitators with often meters long shafts are mixing worldwide everything that needs mixing. Margarine, chocolate, manure, paint, salt, paper pulp, bitumen, bio-ethanol, toothpaste, lotions. It is just a fraction.

,,We could have continued on the same path for 20 more years, but in the end you lose.’’, says Postma. He convinced the shareholders that the company was capable of so much more and got the go-ahead for an investment of millions. 


New ways

Everything has been newly designed, as if there was no old factory. Work processes, work flows, integration of health regulation, “the complete flow, the entire logistics, it will all be much more efficient.”

There will be new machines, three new pits and towers in which the agitators can be tested, an internal loading station, more storage en finally also a showroom.

,,The previous managing directors have been weeding, I will make the company grow and flourish.”, says Postma. He took over the lead four years ago and found technical drawings on the shelves for the most amazing machines. They never saw the light of day. H. de Jonge, the Jewish founder who fled from Germany in 1937, was a top-notch engineer. The downside was an under developed sense for marketing and sales. ,,The saying at  Jongia always was: ‘it is bêst genôch’ (it is good enough). They were used to do projects for the same clients.’’


Think with the customer in possibilities

In the new setup Postma wants to get in contact with the customer in an earlier stage, think with the customers about possible solutions, making cross connections with other disciplines. “We are making the switch from product focused to process focused. Our top priorities are consultancy and innovation.” And ofcourse this entails manufacturing.

The higher in the chain, the higher the profit. Postma, who has an international background at technology corporation Mitsubishi: ,,It is more interesting. You can be much more creative. Inspire, take risks. That is what I want.’’ After which he explains about a company that wants to stir insects. And how fun is it that Jongia can provide a solution that was originally created in another country for a completely different application, for a bio digester for example. 


Innovation

Enthusiastic: ,,Next week we are presenting at an exhibition with our new magnetic mixer. We will build a tank with a window and will fill it with water and confetti. This way the visitors can see exactly how the flow paterns go. If it will work we don’t know, but we go for it!” The unique selling point of this new mixer? It is 100 percent guaranteed free from bacteria and therefor a potential asset in the ultra hygienic food industry.

The new way of working will bring 30 percent more turnover within two years, expects the director. Also because ‘Leeuwarden’ will work more for its German and Italian partner companies Heinkel, Comber and Bolz. Moreover the quartet will become more active in Asia and will open there an assembly hall of which Jongia will be a supplier. If the plans will turn out successful, Postma expects to need ten extra employees.

Congratulations Croda

Afbeelding: Croda

Jongia congratulates Croda Nederland b.v. on winning the VNCI Responsible Care Award 2017 with the biogas-from-glycerine project.
Croda is the name behind the high-performance ingredients in some of the biggest, most successful brands in the world, creating products that are relied on by industries and consumers worldwide. Innovation runs through every aspect of their business, using creativity to build exciting ideas into practical solutions that add value by addressing people's unmet needs.

For various products the Croda production site in Gouda uses fatty acids that are produced on site by hydrolysis of natural oils and fats. Glycerine-water, the co-product of this process will be converted to biogas in an anaerobic digestion plant. The renewable fuel biogas will partly replace natural gas for the production of steam and electrical power for the site.
Digestion of the glycerine-water will avoid the energy intensive concentration step and combined with a redesigned main boiler and CHP system an overall reduction in CO2 emission of 25% will be achieved. Hence the project name "Quarterback".

This project combines a large scale anaerobic digestion of a single source feedstock, an economical design requiring very high conversion rates and a very large upscaling factor with far reaching process integration. Thanks to the innovative aspects of this project it has been accepted as demonstration project under the EU LIFE+ scheme with the general objective to contribute to the implementation, updating and development of EU environmental and climate policy and legislation by co-financing projects with European added value.


For the “Quarterback” project Jongia supplied 2 top entry mixers type LBW and a side entry mixer type JRWM.

Jongia helps you achieve the lowest possible TCO

Afbeelding: CAPEX vs OPEX

The decision to buy a particular brand of mixing equipment is often based on price along with requirements from the production process as part of a capital expenditure trajectory (CAPEX). Usually too little attention is being paid to the so-called operational expenditures (OPEX) which can run 5 times as high as the CAPEX. Jongia is approaching and engineering mixer projects to provide the customers the lowest possible TCO with the best possible process result.

The question is whether the end user is sufficiently made aware of this and base their decisions on TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) aspects such as investment, energy consumption, maintenance costs, durability in relation to the machine itself as well as the environment, etc. Although Jongia doesn’t pretend to be all knowing and neither are our clients and sub-suppliers, we do aim at helping them find the right balance based on the expertise of all parties involved. Starting the process/mechanical discussions and aiming for lowest TCO in an early stage of a project provides the customer with the best possible results in terms of process and cost.


Reference case Salinen

Witness the case of Salinen, the Austrian based salt producer, where Jongia in close cooperation Titan Projects helped to cut down on investment, energy consumption, maintenance and made the production efficiency much higher. This has resulted in a CAPEX reduction of € 1.800.000,= and an OPEX reduction of € 230.000,= yearly.
To read the full story, please click here.

Jongia’s results at Salinen aroused the interest of Russia’s biggest salt producer, Russalt. Competing with the world's leading mixer manufacturer Jongia was granted the project. Even though the CAPEX was slightly higher Russalt was convinced that Jongia would provide them with considerably lower OPEX and therefore much higher operational profit.

Expansion of our service network in cooperation with Roodhart

The best of both worlds - Two leading Dutch companies join force

Two companies, both of them Dutch as can be, have decided to join forces in the field of mixers and agitators to be able to serve the petrochemical industry in the Benelux area even better.

Jongia Mixing Technology in Leeuwarden (NL), with nearly 80 years of experience, has a respectable and impressive reputation in the food and (petro)chemical industry. Jongia is also active in the sustainable energy industry where they are building quite a reputation for themselves as a supplier of innovative mixers and agitators.

Roodhart Emission Control is specialist in maintenance and revision of rotating equipment. Since 1982 it has conquered a sizable market share in the Rotterdam port area.

Both companies share the petrochemical industry and tank terminals as working ground. Roodhart in its capacity as service and maintenance company for a.o. pumps and mechanical seals and Jongia Mixing Technology as supplier of side and top entry mixing equipment of its own design and production.



Allround and 24-hour service

After intensive consultation among the two parties it was decided to form a cooperation in order to promote the synergy. Not only will the services rendered cover technical advice on mixing equipment, but also on replacement and revision of existing equipment. The latter subject being important in the choice of the mechanical seal in zones where explosions can occur and where the ATEX/IECEx regulations are applicable.

In the future Jongia mixers will be revised and repaired at the location of Roodhart, at the Waalhaven in Rotterdam. There will be 24-hour service to ensure quick response in emergency situations by qualified field engineers who can perform the repairs on site.


ATEX compliant

Roodhart is the first company to be certified by Dekra to perform repairs and revisions in accordance with ATEX/IECEx regulations. Jongia Mixing Technology is fast on its way to become the first European mixer manufacturer to carry the ATEX 114-10.00 certificate allowing them to supply ATEX proof mixers worldwide. It will also be possible to supply various ATEX/IECEx certified mechanical seals suitable for the most complicated Zone 0 environment. The ATEX factor is extremely important because of the ever more stringent environmental and safety legislature that oil terminals and refineries have to comply with.

In addition both companies have developed a service to draw up an inventory of the status and possible items to be improved in existing mixers. Legally companies are obliged to take action in order to continue to operate safely and this particular service answers their needs. The inventory and the accompanying technical advices form the steps towards an upgrade or modification in accordance with the latest safety standards. It helps the industry to fulfill the ever more stringent demands by legislature as well as society itself when it comes to environment and safety issues in the harbor and industrial areas.

International partnership Biogas Leeuwarden builds an innovative digester

The international partnership Biogas Leeuwarden BV, Adverio Engineering BV and Oosterhof Holman are designing and building an innovative digester at the location of Dairy Campus. The total project value is Euro 6M and has been funded by the FSFE and the National Green Fund.
 
Adverio Engineering BV designed the project and Oosterhof Holman was granted the order to build the facility. In turn Jongia Mixing Technology was asked to design and supply their innovative agitators for the biogas project. Jongia is the Dutch market leader in the field of agitators. Fundamental R&D in our own lab/test facilities, our own agitator design program and in-house production in Leeuwarden ensure that Jongia is able to provide their customers the optimal process result with the lowest energy consumption and total costs of ownership (TCO).

During the engineering phase of the project Jongia had several meetings with the process engineers of Adverio to discuss about the process and required process results. Jongia used their own agitator design program and made a CFD modeling to underpin the calculated agitator design process results. These results and Jongia’s references in complex digester projects convinced Adverio and Oosterhof Holman that Jongia was able to offer the best solution and is the right partner for their project.


Dairy campus

The ambitious Dairy Campus project of Wageningen University and Research Centre (WUR) in Leeuwarden started in 2007 to do leading research to dairy products and production. It includes plans to have 520 milk cows by the end of 2015 and manure treatment is an increasingly important part of this process. The Biogas Leeuwarden project consists of construction of a new plug flow digester and reconstruction the existing digester to make it suitable for a new technology developed by a consortium of parties in Friesland and America.

Afbeelding: Digester Adverio 1

Breakthrough ‘Hogen’ technology


The planned process with the ‘Hogen’ technology is similar to how a cow digests grass.

  1. crushing (chewing) of the food to short fibers with the ‘biogrinder’.
  2. hydrolysis (stomach) to break open the cellulose membranes
  3. The plug-flow reactor (the bowels) consists of separate zones with specific bacteria that effectively turn biomass into biogas.
  4. After separation of the residual material, the liquid returns into the process and the dry substances (odorless) can be used as biofertilizer.

 
Piet van der Hoop, Initiator of Biogas Leeuwarden: “We brought together a strong consortium to realize this project. I am very pleased that we can now really get to work.”
 
Michel Hendriks, fund management FSFE: “In recent years, many digesters had financial troubles. A technology that extracts more biogas from biomass such as manure and roadside grass could mean a major boost to this sector. The Dairy Campus has grown into a clear role model, both nationally and internationally. This is also an excellent location to realize the project Biogas Leeuwarden.”


About Biogas Leeuwarden BV

Biogas Leeuwarden BV is a consortium established for the realization of the new digester and directed by Clark Technology LLT, Evergreen LLT and supported by Adverio Engineering BV. For more information please contact Wim Vrieling (wvrieling@adverio.eu), Director biogas Leeuwarden BV.

Square tanks with optimal digesting process

Article Bioenergy Inside magazine.

Brothers Jan and Toine Aben from Wanroij, North Brabant in the Netherlands, run a family business called Aben BV. The company operates in dairy farming, pig farming, and recycling with a biogas plant. These utilities are spread over four different locations.

In 2014 Aben Recycling contacted Jongia Mixing Technology. Aben was looking for an agitation technology provider which could deliver agitators for square tanks with an optimal digesting process. Aben intended to build a rectangular concrete basin of 40x80m and a volume of 32,000m3, divided into eight segments of 20x20x11m. The chosen design would save Aben building space and make the tank compartments highly compact.

Successful Salt project in cooperation with Titan Projects

Afbeelding: salt Saline newsletter achema klein

It all started around Christmas 2013 when Jongia was asked by Titan Projects, specialist in supplying complex process equipment worldwide, to quote for agitators for their Austrian salt project. Together with Titan Projects it took over 9 months to fine-tune the specifications of the agitators to meet with the requirements of the end-user and to close the order. We offered agitators based on our experiences at Frisia Zout in Harlingen, part of ESCO (European Salt Company) where we supplied and currently service 8 mixers for the identical application. These agitators have been in use for approximately 20 years now.  This excellent reference, CFD modelling, flexibility, quick reactions and close technical/process discussions, convinced Titan Projects and the Austrian end customer of our skills and that gave us the advantage over our competitors. 


The project

Naturally we were proud and pleased to be awarded the order for this prestigious project by Titan Projects! The order consists of the supply of 4 agitators, 3 replacement shafts for existing agitators and also includes mounting & supervision by our experienced service engineers at the plant. Efficiency and mixing degree were key challenges in this project and our process mixing know how and engineering skills won us the order.


Mixing effiency

The four agitators are specially designed to reduce the time (by >50%) needed for clarification of the liquid. The final result was a clarification time reduction by 65%. Three agitators are used for the distribution of CO2 into a liquid substance. Due to our design of the sparger in combination with special agitator elements, the reaction time was reduced by more than 50%.



Our client speaks

Koos Boersma, one of the owners and director of Titan Project says: „From the start of the discussions with Jongia we had a good feeling about the expertise of Jongia and good references Jongia has in this market and especially with the process at Frisia Zout. For the project the co-owner of our American subsidiary was the construction manager at that time and the process is similar to the process in the Austrian salt project. What gave us the final push to go ahead with Jongia was their flexibility in thinking with us during the pre-engineering process and the quick response. Furthermore Jongia was a step ahead of the competition and the pre-order work was very clear and convincing. I am very satisfied with the close partnership with Jongia and personally about the given process guarantee on the agitator process performance which exceeded our expectations”. 


Installation & Commissioning

Afbeelding: Service bus

Part of Jongia’s scope of supply was the installation/commissioning of the agitators & shafts. Our specialized field engineers drove their well equipped service cars to the Austria. 

The installation was performed satisfactorily in a short period of time and so the project commissioning was met within the envisioned timeframe. The end client is very pleased with our hands-on skills, our knowledge and expertise in agitators and last but certainly not least the far better than expected performance of the agitators. This resulted in a new project through Titan Projects for 4 more agitators!

Corrective maintenance

Although our mixers are robustly built and have proven to be extremely reliable and durable, there will always be unexpected incidents.
Jongia provides around the clock repair services by expert engineers. Our global network covers all four corners of the world thanks also to our close cooperation with our sister company Heinkel.
We use only genuine spare parts and perform repairs with state of the art equipment and methods.
Our engineers are VCA certified.
 

Preventive maintenance

Better to replace parts of a certain age than to repair a mixer which has broken down. 
It is easy to see that it is less costly since the break down of a certain part often causes damage to other parts as well. A mixer is often the heart of your installation and planned standstills are obviously preferred over unexpected stops.
Our team of experienced specialists will carry out the prescribed maintenance and ensure safe and durable operation providing you with continuity of production.

 
Service contracts

Our service contracts are tailor-made to meet the requirements for preventive maintenance of your mixers.  Our expert engineers will analyze your specific needs and offer you a maintenance plan as well as training services to instruct your personnel on maintenance and how to obtain maximum effectiveness from your mixers.
 

Installation & commissioning

To ensure the best possible production start for our clients we recommend installation & commissioning by our experienced engineers. Training your operators can also be part of the commissioning procedure so you’ll also have on-site competence in the use of your mixers.
 

Spare parts

Genuine spares machined by our experienced operators or from well-reputed sub-suppliers are often available from stock or with the shortest possible delivery times. Our dedicated spare parts sales engineers are ready to assist you and provide you with a list of recommended spares for your mixers to keep in stock.
 

Upgrades & optimization

Has your production process changed and do you want to know if your existing mixer is still up to the task? In consultation with our process engineers we will upgrade your installation, if need be.
Legislature changes and sometimes it is necessary to replace certain materials, we will be glad make an inventory and to advise you in these instances.

Magitator for chemical industry

Jongia’s latest development is a magnetic coupled mixer, the Magitator, especially designed for (fine) chemical processes where prevention of seal leakage and product contamination is a top priority. Its main feature is the hermetically closed and sealless shaft design. This kind of mixer can be operated in almost any chemical environment, including in processes where hydrosulfic acid, hydrofluoric acid, amines, isocyanides and NaOH are used.

Jongia’s Magitator, a magnetic coupled mixer, boasts a revolutionary and robust design, robustness being one of the hallmarks of the Jongia brand. Key elements in the design are its shaft rigidity, the ceramic bearing section and the novel magnetic coupling.
The rigidity of the shaft ensures the absolute minimum of vibration and its hermetically closed design guarantees that there will be no contact or contamination between the product in the vessel and the outside atmosphere. 
Furthermore a sealing system is eliminated from the design thanks to the innovative magnetic coupling.

Expertise in complex chemical processing

Afbeelding: ribon

Jongia has supplied many mixers for special applications in the chemical industry globally related to the production of :

  • Polyols
  • Styrene
  • Butadiene latex
  • PAM emulsions
  • HDPE / LDPE
  • as well as more specialty chemicals

Complex polymerization reactions hold very few secrets to us, we’ve got the expertise to design the most efficient mixer. One of the projects we were involved in was the design of a mixer with a helical ribbon impeller mounted on an autoclave designed for polymerization at 30 bar(g) at 350° C and full vacuum. Jongia has implemented a double mechanical, cooled sealing system. The main challenge in the design of this mixer was the viscosity in relation to the reaction time. Within only a few hours in the autoclave the viscosity runs from 1 to 30,000 cP. Loading of the autoclave and mixing time where of the essence here.

Service Terminal Rotterdam (STR) opts for JONGIA mixers

Service Terminal Rotterdam, part of Burando Maritime Service is currently expanding its production capacity at their Torontostraat 20, Rotterdam-Botlek location.

The expansion involves the installation of 5 new storage tanks for crude oil or a blend of other maritime fuels with the following capacities: 2x 53.000 m 3, 1x 40.000 m3 and 2x 13.000 m3.

Jongia mixing technology has supplied many of the mixers which are currently in use at STR’s existing  storage tank park. These mixers have been operating trouble-free since 2004, reason for STR to opt for JONGIA mixers for the new tanks as well.

JONGIA agitators for Greenmills’ bioproject

Jongia supplies agitators for Greenmills’ unique green bioproject in Port of Amsterdam.

More about this unique project

On 28 March 2008, Mayor Job Cohen drove the first pile for the construction of the new Greenmills biodiesel plant on Kretaweg (Kreta Road) in the Port of Amsterdam.

Greenmills will convert organic residual waste and organic waste flows into biofuels and green power on a large scale. The whole building process involves € 90 million. The construction of this sustainable production facility is expected to be completed by the end of 2009. When the plant becomes operational, Greenmills will employ approximately 130 people.

Greenmills is a joint initiative of Noba BV, Rotie Vetveredeling BV, Tankstorage Amsterdam, Bio Diesel Amsterdam, Orgaworld BV and Tank & Truck Cleaning Amsterdam. Under the name Greenmills, these companies will use waste flows from various processes as raw materials for other processes – in order to produce biofuels and green power.

Greenmills is a self-supporting plant that will produce its own electricity and heat by processing organic residual waste and that will also supply electricity to the main grid. Greenmills will generate sufficient green power to supply the equivalent of 35,000 households.
Greenmills will generate green power using waste flows from, for example, the food, drinks and tobacco sector, as well as from the catering industry (waste cooking oils and fats). The new plant will produce a total of over 25 million cubic meters of biogas a year. The heat resulting from power generation will be used for heating the tank park that keeps oil fluid and also produces bio-ethanol. In processing vegetable, fruit and garden waste and similar biodegradable waste, the facility will also make compost for agricultural and garden use.

Furthermore, the site will be home to a fully automated stainless steel tank park providing a storage capacity of more than 100,000 cubic meters. One element is a special filling station (service station) for supplying customers with self-produced biodiesel, bio-ethanol and biogas (methane gas). Sufficient biodiesel will be produced to keep 150,000 private cars or their equivalent running.

More about Bio Diesel Amsterdam

Bio Diesel Amsterdam will produce about 100,000 metric tons of biodiesel per year. The raw materials used will be waste cooking oils and fats from the catering industry.

More about Rotie BV

The waste cooking oils – previously used for preparing French fries (chips) and similar fried snacks – will be collected, cleaned and processed further by Rotie BV to turn them into suitable raw materials for the biodiesel plant. In the Netherlands, Rotie BV is the largest collector and processor of waste vegetable oils and fats. On top of this, Rotie collects other organic waste flows from the food, drinks and tobacco industry. Large and small companies provide a daily supply of organic waste flows to the existing site in the town of Lijnden. Rotie will continue all its activities at the new Greenmills site.

More about Noba BV

In the Netherlands, Noba is leading supplier of vegetable oils and fats (produced to spec) to the animal feed industry.

More about Orgaworld BV

At the site, Orgaworld BV is building a flexible  fermentation and composting installation for the processing of anything from domestic waste (including vegetable, fruit and garden waste) to organic waste flows from the food, drinks and tobacco industry. The fermentation of organic material produces biogas, which can be burnt to generate electricity and heat. In addition, biogas (methane gas) can be used as a fuel for private cars, trucks and buses.

In short, Greenmills is a unique sustainable joint venture that produces all biofuels and energy from waste and waste flows.
