Blücher GmbH

Blücher Technologies: A Tradition of Innovation

CBRN ClothingBlücher GmbH in Erkrath can look back over a history that spans forty years. Still in family hands, this traditional company has retained its very high ethical claim of: Always focusing our activities on protecting life.

High-efficiency Filter Technologies

The core business of Blücher GmbH is the development and production of high-efficiency filter technologies. Based on spherical, high-performance adsorbers - in principle similar to activated carbon - pollutants, smells and other unwanted substances are reliably filtered out of gases and fluids and safely bonded. For optimum protection and comfort in all circumstances, whether in action, at work or play.

Spherical High-performance Adsorbers

High-tech as a principle

Blücher has developed very special and unique production methods that allow product characteristics such as shape, mechanical and adsorptive capacities to be individually customised for optimum performance across a huge range of highly demanding applications. This combination of flexibility and hyper-performance is one of the reasons for Blücher’s global technological leadership in spherical high-performance adsorbers.

These spherical adsorbers are very porous. This structure produces an immensely large internal surface on which the filtered substances can safely be deposited.

The net result is a truly high-tech system that knows no equal in terms of efficiency, flexibility and above all safety in its protective effect.

A quality management system that lives up to its name

Successful innovations demand the most modern and efficient production methods. The Blücher-Group manufactures its core components solely in its own state-of-the-art plants in Germany and US. The entire range of the production process starting from raw materials through to intermediate products all the way up to sophisticated system solutions is in Blücher hands and is constantly monitored and controlled by its own labs.

Flexibility and versatility as strengths

Blücher filter technologies are used wherever undesirable or even hazardous pollution has to be eliminated. The range is very varied, from odour adsorption, air and water filtration right through to personal protection against chemical and biological toxins.

CBRN Protection - SARATOGA® Protective Suits and Systems

Life Protection

Research, development and innovation have made Blücher a world market leader for CBRN protection. Over 10 million of Blücher’s SARATOGA® brand protective suits and systems in over 40 countries speak for themselves. Even the most demanding task forces, including OPCW inspectors who are confronted with CBRN hazards every single day, rely on SARATOGA® from Blücher.

The SARATOGA® systems include not only CBRN but also ballistic protection as well as protection against foul weather, fire and cold. But comfort too is also taken seriously. Integrated ventilation systems for cooling and moisture management with designed-in weight minimisation reduce the physical strain and ensure adequate mobility. What's more, the SARATOGA® protective suits can be put on quickly and easily.

Clean Air Filter Technology - SARATECH®

A breath of fresh air

The SARATECH® filter technology brand from Blücher provides clean air in aircraft and also in specialised vehicles that are deployed in environments that are hazardous to health.

The applications for SARATECH® odour adsorbers that can be found in supporting roles relating to domestic equipment and air-purifying devices also guarantee a better quality of life.

Ultrapure Drinking Water Filtration SARATECH® Adsorbers

Clean water, the elixir of life

The level of pollution in drinking water from industrial effluents as well as residues from pharmaceuticals and chemicals is rising. This development is accompanied by growing demands on drinking water and industry needs increasingly high-purity water for its production processes.
Thanks to their purity, excellent adsorptive properties and mechanical strength, SARATECH® adsorbers are singularly ideally suited for perfect ultrapure water filtration.

Tailored problem solving

As a result of our unique production processes the properties of the adsorbers can be individually adapted and tuned to meet a vast range of specialised requirements, needs and applications.
