Due to the current situation around the Corona Virus COVID-19 we would like to briefly inform you about the situation here at Winkler AG:
Our foremost concern is the safety of our employees and Partners, thus we have drawn up an internal crisis plan and introduced appropriate safety measures according to the recommendations of the WHO and the RKI. This plan is constantly adapted to the changing situation and allows us to maintain our ability to deliver and be present for you - our customers.
We are for the moment not affected and are working at all production sites with slight restrictions due to the implementation of the safety measures.
As usual, you can contact us at any time by phone, fax or email. We have sufficient storage capacity to be able to bridge short-term delivery bottlenecks from our suppliers and to process and deliver your orders.
We will inform you on any changes here on our homepage.
Winkler manufactures under templine® brand heated hoses for particulary demanding applications, such as for loading hot bitumen at 200 °C. The example shown here has a nominal diamter of DN 100 and an outside diameter of 175 mm. The heated hose is protected by a high-perfomance spiral hose from Masterflex and has indestructible silicone end caps at both ends. The entire, very robust structure is designed for continous industrial operation.back

Masterflex SE and Winkler AG agree on cooperation for templine® heating hoses
Masterflex SE, market leader in the field of technically sophisticated hoses and connection systems, and Winkler AG, market leader in the field of heating hoses and heating systems, have agreed on an extensive cooperation. Winkler AG will take over the templine® product group as well as the templine® brand and its marketing from Masterflex SE with immediate effect.
"In Winkler AG, we have found a cooperation partner who will be able to supply our customers with high-quality heating hoses in an even more targeted manner in the future and who will continue to develop the segment, which is entirely in our interest," stresses Dr. Andreas Bastin, CEO of the Masterflex Group. "At the same time, this streamlining of our portfolio is a sensible addition to our range of products and services".
Masterflex has been manufacturing heated hose systems under the name templine® for more than 10 years.
The two companies based in Gelsenkirchen and Heidelberg will work closely together in the future. "Masterflex will continue to supply components for the production of heating hoses," explains Andreas Zenner, CEO of Winkler AG. Among other things, a special templine® series with high-performance protective hoses from Masterflex, which will be marketed with the addition „Protected by Masterflex“, is also planned.
The sales and technical teams of both companies will try to ensure as far as possible that there will be no restrictions or delays for customers during the transition period.back
Under this keyword Winkler AG presents a new series of heaters for industrial containers. Benefit from energy savings of up to 30 % and an optimised connected power.
Energy efficiency, durability and easy handling were the focus of this new development. This is reflected in an optimised design using high-quality materials and components. Useful accessories such as insulation covers complete the range. In contrast to conventional products, the heating element is drawn into pockets, which achieve higher efficiency through more even heat distribution and at the same time give the heating mats a supporting structure. Construction and design ensure an optimum contact with the surfaces of the drums, containers and gas cylinders to be heated. In addition, the smart design simplifies handling to such an extent that the heaters can be quickly and safely applied by just one person - without slipping or readjustment. Safety first: Safety capillary tube thermostat with 0-90 °C or the electronic controller enable the implementation of modern safety concepts such as a fixed setpoint for safe operation and against unauthorized operation. Gas cylinder heaters are designed exclusively with electronic temperature regulator/limiter to ensure that the maximum permissible temperature of 50 °C as specified in the relevant standards is safely maintained.back
