REINEKE
A COMPANY WITH TRADITION
AND FUTURE

For over 100 years, we manufacture hydraulic systems and control valves at the
highest level. Through international certifications, we develop forward looking
products and concepts.

The company Apparatebau J. H. Reineke GmbH was founded in 1912 as a forerunner of Reineke Mess- und Regeltechnik GmbH and is settled in Bochum.

For centuries, the use of automatic calorific metering and the Wobbe index meter has been customary within gas production, mainly for coke gases, in industrial plants, cities, and counties throughout Europe.

In the early 1960´s when exploration of the larger natural gas fields began in Europe those fields were divided within the local industries and communities and the demand for automatic calorific meters and Wobbe index meters dropped dramatically. Today, these analyzers are most commonly used to measure and monitor waste gases in refineries, chemical and steel plants, and in sewage and landfill gas plants.

At that time, Reineke’s management decided to counterbalance the losses incurred by the diminished production and demand for their gas analyzers by modifying and improving their servo valve used in their hydraulic gas regulators. The goal was to use this newly engineered “servo valve with feedback” in electro hydraulic actuators. With this development Reineke became a leading manufacturer of electro hydraulic actuators and actuator systems. This position was improved by the contineous development of compact actuator and actuator system technology for special power plant applications.

In March 1993 a management-buy-out took place and the company name was changed to Reineke Meß- und Regeltechnik GmbH.

For over 100 years, Reineke has manufactured gas monitoring and analyzing instruments, hydraulic controls as well as electro hydraulic actuators and actuator systems. Since 1997, our company has added to its list of products custom designed control and steam conditioning valves.

Production facility: The company Reineke Meß- und Regeltechnik GmbH has its headquarters in Bochum with a size of 2.750m ², including production and storage facilities as well as commercial and technical offices. The main factory in Bochum is located 40 km east of Düsseldorf International Airport and can be reached via the A52 / A 40 motorway.
In cooperation with our qualified manufacturing partners workpieces with larger dimensions according to the quality plan created by us are mechanically processed and welded.
