Our design department: Involved right from the start!

We turn your idea into a concept: Based on 50 years of experience, we not only have a wide range of products, but also extensive knowledge that we can use to realise your plans. Whether you come to us with a sketch, an existing design drawing or a P&ID (Piping and Instrumentation Diagram) – we’ll make something of it! Our design department creates 3D designs with Autodesk Inventor and can provide you with step files on request.

With state-of-the-art software and professional expertise, we can also design for your company. Whether individual parts or component designs, our experienced design team will reliably realise your projects. We pay particular attention to effective communication and close cooperation with our customers. The derivation of parts lists and individual isometrics directly from our designs gives you the advantage of always up-to-date parts lists for your procurement and for your customer approval. For the HealthCare and Food & Beverage sectors, we create hygienic designs and use components that are easy to clean.

As standard, our stainless-steel pressure components are designed and calculated according to AD2000. The set of rules is widely accepted even outside Germany due to its testing and documentation requirements. Of course, we also offer design and strength calculations in accordance with ASME regulations. Our 9 design engineers are continuously updated through training courses. Contact us, we will also design your stainless-steel pressure equipment with the highest quality!


Thank you for visiting our stand at the Braubeviale in Nuremberg

After a break of 4 years, the Braubeviale took place again from 28.11 – 30.11 in Nuremberg. We were able to present our solutions, especially in the food & beverage sector, over 3 successful days and would like to thank all customers and interested parties who visited us at our stand in Nuremberg. In addition to our revised gas filter housing, we were able to present a new closure for our bag filter housing. This time we also had the HUBL beer brewing system from our sister company in the INEX group with us. The beer brewing system for the caterer who knows the wishes of his customers and enjoys working as a brewer himself. If you are interested in the beer brewing system, you will find a lot more information under the following link:

We thank the great team from HUBL for the excellent cooperation and look forward to the next trade fairs in the new year. Missed the trade fair? We would be delighted to invite you to visit us. Get in touch with us!

Certificate for structural components up to EXC2 according to EN 1090-2

A new feature in plant construction at Sommer & Strassburger is that we are now also allowed to weld structural components (such as large I-beams in the skid, see picture). The European DIN EN 1090 regulates the proof of conformity, the factory production control, the manufacturer certification and the CE marking for load-bearing steel components that are placed on the market as construction products. In future, the certificate will be a necessary prerequisite for the CE marking of your steel components.

Sommer & Strassburger is allowed to weld material group 8.1 up to design class EXC2. This execution class includes statically, quasi-statically and fatigue-stressed components or supporting structures made of steel up to strength class S700, which cannot be assigned to execution classes EXC 1, EXC 3 and EXC 4. Material group 8.1 according to CEN ISO/TR 15608 includes stainless steel 1.4301. Your advantage with us is that we can realise everything for you in plant construction, from frame construction to skid piping. We are able to use our vessels, pressure pipes of the MembraLine® line or our filter technology of the FiltraLine® product group and can thus complete plants particularly quickly and optimise delivery times. In plant construction, we can build structures up to 8 metres high. Ask us, we have decades of expertise in plant construction.

Sommer and Strassburger at BrauBeviale in Nuremberg from 28 – 30.11.23

BrauBeviale is one of the leading European trade fairs for the production and marketing of beer and non-alcoholic beverages. More than 1,100 exhibitors present themselves and about 40,000 visitors visit the 9 exhibition halls. Our sales team is at your disposal and is looking forward to sharing this year’s innovations with you. Contact us if you would like a personal appointment or a free day ticket.

We would love to welcome you at our stand in hall 9 at stand 351.



Pressure equipment registration for South Korea

This year we also have a project in which we are building tanks and equipment that will be located in South Korea near Seoul. As the tanks fall under the category of pressure equipment – we need certification from KEA (KOREA ENERGY AGENCY). The KEA is a Korean authority which have their own guidelines for pressure equipment.. The advantage of our many years of experience is that we know the very high standards and, when it comes down to it, we work closely with the Korean engineering office SSEN to achieve the best possible cooperation.

Contact us if you want to export to South Korea – we will be happy to advise you.

Sommer und Strassburger is one of more than 550 exhibitors.  Around 20,000 participants inform themselves about drinking water, industrial wastewater and sewage treatment, water transport, utilities and much more. Stainless steel is the material of choice in many areas of water treatment. Our stainless steel systems and components can be used for many different applications: pharmaceutical water, dialysis water, brewing water or water for mixing beverages – wherever quality makes the difference.

Our sales team is at your disposal and is looking forward to sharing this year’s innovations with you. Contact us if you would like a personal appointment or a free day ticket.

We would love to welcome you at our stand in hall 1 at stand 01.505.


Gas filter housing – lower part completely CNC-manufactured

Gas is often used in the production of food, pharmaceutical products, and medicines. For example, purified air is utilised in many fermentation processes. If impurities enter the process via the air – the entire batch can be contaminated and must be discarded.

Our gas filter housings play a major role in safe process control. New in 2023 is that the lower part of the housing is made entirely of solid material using CNC technology, thus saving around 50% of the welding seams. Weld seams should always be kept to a minimum in hygienic/aseptic process control, as contamination by germs can occur there due to the slightly rougher surface. Another advantage of reducing the number of weld seams is that we can now offer even more attractive prices.

We offer our gas filter housings with inner surfaces from bright metal to SF4 (Ra ≤ 0.38 µm and electropolished). We can manufacture the gas housing in the outlet with a slope to achieve good residual drainability according to ASME BPE.

The new series is available in 16 standard versions from DN10 to DN40 in DIN as well as in ISO and inch versions – due to the modular system we can guarantee short delivery times. Of course, we weld the connections orbitally as standard – because we are concerned about the highest process reliability and reproducibility.

Thought through for you: To avoid condensation in the “cold” stainless steel housing and thus prevent blocking of the filter cartridge, we are pleased to offer you our automatic heating.

Our filter housings are designed and calculated according to AD2000 as standard, other regulations on request. We would also be happy to provide you with detailed documentation including endoscopy and non-destructive testing (NDT) of the weld seams.

Sommer und Strassburger has been producing stainless steel components for many industries for almost 50 years. Our sales experts work closely with our design and production department, so that we can always offer you innovative improvements.

Ask us, we will find the safe solution for your process too!
