The specialist for highly reliable filters and centrifuges
ANDRITZ KMPT GmbH is a provider, developer, and manufacturer of Krauss-Maffei peeler and pusher centrifuges as well as drum, disc, and dynamic crossflow filters. The broad range of uses includes highly abrasive applications in mining, corrosive, and explosive processes for the chemical industry as well as hygienic applications for the pharmaceutical and food industries.
A success story – innovative from the beginning
Our history began with J. A. Maffei, the company that built the first horizontal peeler centrifuge in 1928. This marked the beginning of the process technology division at Kraus-Maffei. Five years later, a three-column centrifuge was developed. In the decades that followed, the company set further milestones in solid/liquid separation, for example with the first pusher centrifuge in 1950. KMPT has a far longer history in the field of vacuum filtration. The first vacuum drum filter was sold back in 1922.
In 2010, the company became part of the ANDRITZ GROUP and changed its name to ANDRITZ KMPT GmbH.
