What do you think of when you hear the words "grate" and "summer"? Probably barbecuing sausages on a balmy summer’s evening. Now that it’s barbecue weather, it’s time to treat ourselves to as many evenings grilling as we can. For us at HZI Germany, this summer the word “grate” also means variety. We’ve long been in the business of servicing incineration grates. Now that we have an even bigger network of experienced technicians and have added ESTI to our group, we can offer even more grate services, and more importantly more variations on the various grate technologies. Talk to us. We’ll make you a quote.

We hope you have a wonderful summer. Stay tuned!

We know variation not only in sausages for barbecue grates - we now offer revisions for almost all grate technologies.

You Have to Take Quality into Your Own Hands

Will that weld hold as promised? Weld seams are one of the most sensitive parts of the boiler. Their manufacture must be professionally inspected and supervised to ensure the high quality and long lifetime of the entire system. During our services, welding is coordinated in accordance with ISO 14731. True to our principles of work and quality, the most important key roles are performed by our own specialist employees. Qualified, long-serving staff are the key to delivering on our promise of quality. Only in exceptional cases will key roles be performed by external staff, and here we can draw on partner companies with many years of experience. This way we make sure the experts we deploy have the necessary know-how and are familiar not only with our technology, but with the complexity of the projects we handle. We can also make sure that our high quality standards and schedules are kept to. Ultimately it’s you who benefit.
