LEBANON, PA — Process equipment manufacturer Van Tongeren America recently celebrated the opening of its North American headquarters in Lebanon, PA. Set in the state’s historic manufacturing heartland, the Van Tongeren headquarters encompasses engineering, design, sales and technical support services for the company’s lines of particle classifiers, cyclone separators and bag filter dust collectors for the aggregate, mineral, petrochemical, and other process industries, as well as for its Fluidized Catalytic Cracking Cyclones for the oil refinery industry. The company dates back to 1927 when Hermannus van Tongeren founded the global company in Holland to offer his breakthrough cyclone technology for dust collection, which continues to form the engineering basis of nearly all industrial cyclones currently in use worldwide.
