From Schwabach into the big wide world
When Willi Memmert and his wife Eva-Babette Memmert opened the doors of their small electrical business in their hometown of Schwabach over 90 years ago, they had no idea that 15 years later they would have dealings with customers on the other side of the planet. Nor did they imagine that they would be cooperating closely with associates in India and Egypt in order to expand their business interests there and lay the foundation for future long-term partnerships. What’s more, all without speaking a word of English. Nonetheless, the entrepreneur Willi Memmert was convinced that there was a market for his flagship product beyond the borders of Germany and he fully intended to tap into it.
Founder of Memmert GmbH + Co. KG: Willi Memmert
The foundation for success
In 1947, the trained electrical engineer was commissioned by the Red Cross to manufacture a hot-air steriliser – the ‘Aeolus’. It was used to keep syringes and other medical equipment germ-free thereby playing an active role in curtailing epidemics and diseases. The success proved the company founder right: by the mid-1950s, the company Memmert was already exporting its appliances internationally.
Then we’ll just have to improvise…
This is just one of many examples that illustrates the role improvisation and practical organisational talent has played on Memmert’s journey from small family business to globally operating enterprise, today exporting to more than 160 different countries around the world. It was also this pragmatic approach that resulted in the development of the ‘Aeolus’ back in 1947. In those days, raw materials were scarce. Willi Memmert therefore built the prototype from recycled aluminium from old aircraft parts.
First Memmert hot air sterilizer: Aeolus
“Here’s what we need: …”
“Our developments are responses to the suggestions and requirements of our customers,” says Christiane Riefler-Karpa, the company founder’s granddaughter and managing director since the year 2007. “We deliver the solutions.” Having initially served the medical segment with its forerunner ‘Aeolus’, the company Memmert gradually began to receive more and more enquiries from a wider variety of industries. Whether research, pharmaceutical, cosmetics or foodstuff industry: throughout the era of economic miracle, the demand for accurate climate and temperature control technology was high. The innovation cycles of the originally small family business became increasingly shorter.
Aeolus and other milestones
The cornerstone of the company's success was the ‘Aeolus’. This was followed in the 1950s by another milestone: a mechanical controller which, for those days, offered exceptionally high precision. The temperature could be set via a control knob with an accuracy of less than ± 0.5 °C. Equally as revolutionary: the world’s most accurate temperature control appliance with all-round heating system – the first product launched by the future global player.
This was a technical innovation with heating coils placed in pressed swages in its inner chamber which meant that, for the very first time, it was possible to construct a heating oven that wasn’t round, but square – which made it infinitely more practical.
The following decade saw a drive for the establishment of a series production to enable the output of significantly higher quantities. The 1970s and 80s focused on automating manufacturing methods and perfecting product design.
In 1976, management of the company was passed on to the next generation. Daughters Grete Memmert-Riefler and Herta Ulrich and their respective husbands took over leadership of the firm after the death of Willi Memmert. They recognised the potential offered by advancing globalisation and paved the way for their open-minded company to tap into new markets all over the world.
A new breakthrough every ten years
This was the era in which Memmert again brought an absolute innovation in temperature control technology onto the market: as one of the first manufacturers worldwide, Memmert complemented its product range with in-house developed electronic controllers. The next time Memmert took on a pioneering role within the industry was in the year 2000, when it launched the first cooled incubators with Peltier technology. Not only does this technology offer top accuracy in the operation of climate and temperature control appliances, it is also highly impressive when it comes to energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
Particularly noteworthy are the two device generations from 2003 and 2012 which were instrumental in defining industrial standards in terms of functionality, accuracy and ease of use for both laboratory and industrial applications. It therefore comes as no surprise that Memmert is celebrating this year's anniversary under the motto '90 years of being ahead'.
Into the future
Meanwhile, Memmert ovens have arrived in the future. A specially developed software enables the latest generation of appliances to be programmed remotely and networked with one another. From afar, from a home-office desk, with a tablet, from anywhere in the world. Another logical development, which resulted not least from the increasingly networked nature of the company itself: in 2010, Memmert established a distribution company in China, followed by another one in India in 2012. More have followed in the USA and Eastern Europe. There are separate teams for Germany, France, Spain and the United Kingdom. "We maintain relationships with many of our customers that go back decades, in some cases over generations," says Christiane Riefler-Karpa. "The trust our customers place in us is the most valuable aspect of our company's capital." And it is for these customers that Memmert will continue to give its best in the future.

Pure Essential Chromatography System: First steps to fast separationsBÜCHI Labortechnik AG, a leading provider of laboratory equipment, has added the Pure Essential Chromatography system to its portfolio. This instrument serves as the ideal introduction to automated flash chromatography. Benefitting from an easy-to-use, compact, and modular design that allows the system to grow with your needs.
The most basic of all chromatography systems is the traditional open-column setup. It is how most people are introduced to chromatography, similar to the setup used by chromatography’s inventor Mikhail Tsvet. The setup is very basic, involving a glass column with two open ends. At the bottom of the column is a stopcock to control the solvent flow directed to the collection flask. The entire process is gravity fed; therefore, it is slow and inefficient and requires someone to perform each step of the separation process manually.
Over the years, the technique for separating compounds of synthesis or extraction mixtures has been vastly improved; however, many modern systems are complex and expensive and offer advanced features that some users do not require. The Pure Essential Chromatography system has been specifically developed to fill this gap in the market. At its heart is a strong 50 bar pump that allows for high flow rates. The pump rapidly moves the solvent and sample through the stationary phase. The instrument allows for automation of the process thanks to an intuitive software control which also ensures fast and reproducible results. Only a few clicks are required to program a method or adapt parameters on the fly. Prepacked flash cartridges simplify the setup, as there is no requirement for manual column packing. The entire system is efficient and uses small particle sizes for higher-resolution results, all while reducing solvent consumption.
The Pure Essential Chromatography system has been designed as a modular system with a small footprint, allowing the setup to grow with your needs. A highly sensitive UV detector or fraction collector can be added to the powerful Pure Chromatography C-900, a controlled pump. Safety is also a key feature of the Pure Essential Chromatography system which is equipped with a pressure sensor and benefits from a solid design with steel pump heads and robust accessories built for the rigors of daily use. Everything is easily accessible on the instrument, making maintenance a breeze.
Simplicity results from intelligent design and years of experience, and the Pure Essential Chromatography system is a shining example of a dedicated focus on perfecting the essentials. The instrument is ideal for academia or labs that require a bespoke setup for a particular workflow. “The Pure Essential Chromatography system is super easy to use, without any bells and whistles. It benefits from a small footprint and attractive price as well; it is the perfect way to enter the preparative chromatography instrument world when used to using open columns,” said Dr. Ruedi Hartmann, Director of Business Areas & Vertical Markets at BÜCHI Labortechnik.
The Pure Essential Chromatography system completes BUCHI’s comprehensive range of preparative chromatography systems. BÜCHI Labortechnik AG remains dedicated to offering solutions catering to all budgets and workflows of academic, pharmaceutical, chemical, and biotechnological industries.

Weisstechnik new temperature shock test chamber ShockEvent DWith the Damper Shock, Weisstechnik is expanding its portfolio of temperature shock test chambers. The new test chamber from the ShockEvent series is predestined for test specimens, which are sensitive to vibrations or energised.
The special feature of the Damper Shock is the stationary test space. Temperature-controlled hot and cold air is generated in chambers above and below the test space. Via Dampers, the air can be led to the test specimens. This is the major difference from horizontal and vertical shock test chambers, where the test specimens are located in a test cage that can be moved between two temperature chamber.
With its static test chamber, the Damper Shock is ideally suited for vibration-sensitive measuring technology and sensor technology as well as for active test material that is to be shocked without further influences. It meets the requirements of standardised temperature stress tests such as IEC 60068-2-14, the Japanese standards JASO D-014-4 and EIAJ ED-2531B Na and various degrees of severity of MIL-STD-883H and 202G.
In addition, the new test chamber has been designed as a two and three zone shock tester, which now allows ambient air flow in. This provides more flexibility for a variety of test requirements. Another advantage of the stationary test chamber is the simple cable guiding for measuring equipment. The cables are stationary in the test space and do not move, unlike in other shock test models.
With outer dimensions of 1970 x 1595 x 1765 mm, the test chamber is used by development laboratories and quality assurance in production halls. The test space volume is 210 litres with dimensions of 700 x 500 x 600 mm and allows a maximum test specimens load of 100 kg. The Damper Shock can easily be connected to other test chambers and be operated with the familiar S!MPATI control software.
Weisstechnik supplies its Damper Shock either with refrigerant R-23 or the new R-469A, winner of the German Innovation Prize. In the test space, the temperature range is between - 65 °C and + 200 °C.
