Product Portfolio
  • UTS Plantsystems

  • ECONOMICAL. ECOLOGICAL. PATENTED.
    With a plant from UTS, you decide in favour of almost 20 years experience and around 1600 installed biogas plants. Very important: our Full Service. In a biogas plant which we have planned and designed, all components are perfectly matched to each other and efficiency-oriented – thanks to our own development department and our own manufacture of pumps, mixers, etc. Pumps, mixers, mechanical, hydraulic, electronic parts, and all equipment are designed with economy in mind. The numerous patents and the protected processes which are already part of our company history are witness to our experience and to our claim to be a technology leader. UTS agitator and mixing technology, substrate dosing, pump and separation technology, and our solutions to exploit the energy of the biogas are practically based, reliable, and service-friendly. Here, safety and reliability have top priority.

    In brief, the benefits of our UTS solutions are:
    • Patented, hydraulically driven mixers with submersible motors guarantee safe operation within the fermenter.
    • The use of the hydraulic unit in a protected environment guarantees simple maintenance and automatic monitoring.
    • Patented Service-Box with integrated working platform guarantees safe maintenance of the mixing technology outside the fermenter, and avoids expensive gas loss and emissions damaging to the environment.
    • High plant availability through robust and appropriate technology
      • Helios® system

      • FLEXIBLE. PROVEN IN PRACTICE. SAFE.
        All UTS plants are flexible systems which we individually adapt to your needs and requirements. The Helios® system is available for various plant sizes, and is characterised by the following benefits:
        • Flexibly extensible multi-tank system
        • Standardised system assembly solution
        • High operating safety

The most important characteristic of this plant system is the ring-in-ring construction: One or more concentric rings are fitted around a central tank, thus creating additional fermentation or storage space within a single structure. This provides the following benefits:
        • Minimisation of operating costs yet providing maximum gas yields
        • Optimised flow ducting
        • Best homogenisation by means of UTS mixer technology
        • No short-circuit flows
        • Uniformity of dwell times of the raw materials in the plant system
        • Outstanding maintenance access via UTS Service-Box
        • Extremely compact construction
        • Fermenter heights up to 10 m
        • Minimised heat loss
        • Shortest possible ducting routes

        • SAFE. LEGALLY COMPLIANT. LOW-RISK.
          Our technological claim is: It must be possible to replace and maintain all the technologies in a biogas plant, without risk and without negatively affecting the biological process. And: the routine maintenance of a mixer must not bring the plant to a stop for days on end, thereby resulting in production stoppages.

          We fulfil these requirements with a new standard of safety and service quality. The patented UTS systems, such as the Service-Box Classic or Pro, ensure that operation and maintenance work can be reliably carried out in compliance with the highest industrial safety requirements. If desired, we can supply safety-related documents which are legally prescribed for the operator.

          Safety first:
          • Patented, hydraulically driven mixers with submersible motors guarantee safe operation within the fermenter (not subject to ATEX).
          • The use of the hydraulic unit in a protected environment guarantees simple maintenance and automatic monitoring.
          • The patented Service-Box with integrated working platform guarantees rapid and safe maintenance of the mixer technology outside the fermenter, and avoids expensive gas loss and emissions damaging to the environment.
          • Explosion protection documents and operational hazard analyses.
        • Biological Service

        • BIOLOGICAL. OPTIMISED. INDIVIDUAL.
          Both when commissioning your plant and afterwards, we are available to you for all technical process problems - from the achievable gas yield of a new substrate, to the potential of auxiliaries, to the quality of the fermentation residue generated. In collaboration with qualified laboratories, our specialists with their many years of experience are able to solve difficult problems analytically, e.g. the effect of auxiliaries on the resistance of individual components. However, the analyses become really useful for your operation only after our expert evaluation – to ensure the most robust and long-term application possible.

          Do you need a replacement part for your plant, even though your components have been working reliably for many years? No problem. For more than 15 years, our customers have been using our replacement parts service. Both in southern and northern Germany, our subsidiary UTS Products GmbH, has for many years operated its own manufacturing and production workshops with attached service centre.

          The use of stainless steel is just as much an integral part of manufacturing as the installation of pumps and the construction of mixers. Ongoing product development – especially through the inclusion of experience from the service area – has resulted in the renowned top quality and well designed system components for which we are recognised in the market. We take the same care in designing special components for complete plants, building them individually, and integrating them into the combined system.
      • TECHNOLOGY

      • For your biogas plant and your investment, do you favour a partner who is recognised and experienced worldwide, and who is seen as a technological leader in the industry?

        Innovative products, state-of-the-art technology, and qualified staff and specialists: Those are our success factors, and are a reason why UTS has ensured itself a leading position in the national and international market. This is reflected in numerous patents and protected processes.
          • Service-Box Pro & Classic

          • PROTECTED. RAPID. HAZARD-FREE.
            Biogas is produced in enclosed tanks, the fermenters. Depending on the substrate feed, pressure peaks may arise which have to be safely trapped. In addition, the mixer equipment located in the fermenter must be maintained at regular intervals – wherever possible, without interrupting or negatively affecting the biological process.

            We developed the UTS Service-Box Pro and its predecessor, the UTS Service-Box Classic, precisely for these purposes, and we thereby guarantee an unbeaten availability of your gas plant. Our Service-Box Classic has been installed hundreds of times in biogas plants in Europe, and has thereby become the visible emblem of our biogas expertise.

            The technical innovations in the UTS Service-Box Pro reduce methane emissions, increase the operational periods of the biogas plant, and reduce maintenance time – so that as a biogas plant operator, you save money and time, and protect the environment! The UTS Service-Box, manufactured from stainless steel, can be used as a system solution for tanks with a foil or a concrete roof, and is protected by national and international patents.
