Big Cupola IV



This is the old Carlshütte in Limburg, Germany, better known as Buderus Eisenwerke for more than a century.
The company was founded in 1900 by Carl Schlenck from Nürnberg.
In 1907 the Buderus company took the mill over to produce sewer and drainage castings.
Four cupola furnaces were installed. During world war II. a converter for steel castings was in use.
During the 1950ies and 60ies more than 1200 people were employed.
In 1979 a new hot blast cupola furnace was built.
In 2009 the former Buderus Kanalguss was bought by the MeierGuss group.

  1. ah, must have confused it with some similar one on your website already, I am getting old. 🙂

  2. So you think I’m getting old 🙂 ?
    Been to the Buderus foundry in Wetzlar. They had quite a lot. Some are now owned by Bosch.
    Buderus is just a name left over, dismantled in 2003.
