Dipl. Kfm. Stephan Schaller, CEO

These qualities have made SCHALLER AUTOMATION to become the market leader in the sector of the protection of large Diesel, Gas and Dual Fuel engines against crankcase explosions by detection of Oil Mist.

Following SOLAS rules, engines of size 2250 kW and above and/or min. 300mm cylinder bore are obliged to be equipped with safety measures to avoid a crankcase explosion caused by igniting oil mist e.g. produced by failing bearings. Schaller Automation today is in the lucky position to be market leader within the protection of those engines and is happy to supply its safety systems also in remarkable numbers to engines running in land based power plant duty.

Today SCHALLER AUTOMATION employs more than 70 engineers, task specialists and clerks. A close cooperation with several Universities and private Research Institutes allows SCHALLER AUTOMATION to bring both together for best result: Theoretical and Practical Know How.

As the company’s philosophy is highly based on quality aspects, SCHALLER AUTOMATION is certified by DNV GL Business Assurance Zertifizierung und Umweltgutachter GmbH, Schnieringshof 14, 45329 Essen, Germany according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2008.
