Our international customers from various sectors of industry have been relying on the quality of our equipment and systems for years.

As an industry-wide specialist with several locations, we manufacture technically high-quality products and customized solutions.

Aiming at a facilitation of the robust calculation of our horizontal thin-film dryer designs GIG Karasek awards a master thesis:

Conduct sludge drying tests in our technical center in Gloggnitz, Lower Austria (about 80 km south of Vienna). The tests will feature different parameters like varied temperatures, feed rates, process pressure and rotor designs to develop a profound basis for slude drying process simulations.


Evaluate and interpret data derived from the tests for creation of a database with key parameters determining the sludge drying process.


Develop new rotor designs on basis of the achieved testing data to improve existing and envolve new
GIG Karasek design tools.

Our personnel of the technical center and of our process design department will guide and help you to deepen your understanding of thermal separation technologies, both in general applications but also in thin-film drying in particular.


  • Good knowledge of and interest in termal separation technology
  • Hands-on mentality
  • Interest in process design
  • Basic German language skills
  • EUR 884,00 gross per month for 20 hours/week,based on the collective agreement.
  • Flexible working hours in the technical center
  • Option of a further career in out technical center after graduation.
