Coking technology - efficient and environmentally friendly

KUETTNER and its subsidiary KUETTNER HuDe GmbH are leaders in providing emission-free coke production technologies. Environmental protection, coke quality and economic efficiency are at the forefront.

The main focus of our activities is in the coal handling and coke production around the coke oven battery. The KUETTNER HuDe team combines long term experience with today’s best available technology for a most modern coke plant performance package. All our technological developments are designed for strict Environmental protection. 

Today “no visible emissions” on a coke plant is not any more a dream, it became more important than ever and applying KUETTNER HuDe process-controlled coke oven Technologies becomes reality all over the world. 

Our coke oven operating machines and equipment define state of art for such Technologies, enable compliance with all current and future realistic environmental requirements and are efficient and reliable. 

KUETTNER HuDe coke oven machine technology performance is not limited to the machines itself. Excellent machine performance is only possible if also the interfaces to the coke oven battery become an integral part of the overall system. 

KUETTNER HuDe provides standpipe automation systems, level controlled top charging, on board installed or stationary stamping units for side charging, logistic units like cranes and bucket cars for dry coke quenching on CDQ-plants, automation systems for man-less machine coordination, long term data recording, over all data communication systems, condition monitoring systems and much more. Automatically coordinated operation of the machine units enables an optimal process flow with minimum opening time for each individual oven chamber, ensuring highest energy efficiency.

Two main charging methods are available:

The proven "Top Charging Technology”

The ever more important "Side Charging Technology” (stamp charging)
