With over 20 years of experience, Koch Modular Process Systems has been successfully designing and constructing mass transfer systems for the chemical industry.
The chemical industry includes all companies that produce a variety of industrial chemicals to be used in the manufacturing of other items, and in some cases, produce chemicals that are directly sold to consumers. The chemical industry, which is vital to the world economy, converts raw materials such as oil, natural gas, air, water, metals and minerals, into thousands of everyday products. This is achieved through the application of various chemical processes, chemical reactions, and refining methods.
Pilot Testing for Chemical Plants
Because of their reactive and potentially hazardous nature, these chemical processes must be carried out in an industrial chemical plant. Chemical plants are intricate facilities that use corrosion-resistant equipment and units, and require specialized technology in the manufacturing process. They are highly controlled with regards to temperature and pressure levels and require quality control and pilot testing labs to ensure safe operations.
Chemical Plant Modular Mass Transfer Systems
This is where Koch Modular Process Systems comes into play. We specialize in the design and supply of modular mass transfer systems to get your chemical plant up and running. From modular system construction to start-up and optimization, our proven engineering expertise allows us to execute any project. Our modular process systems are constructed to your exact specifications, and all components are thoroughly tested prior to shipment.
We also specialize in the design and construction of distillation equipment necessary for the chemical industry. Distillation applications include: solvent recovery, product purification, organic chemical separations, and more. If distillation is not feasible for your particular operation, liquid-liquid extraction may be applied instead. Some reasons for using liquid-liquid extraction rather than distillation are:
- Separation not feasible by distillation
- Break azeotropes
- Energy requirements of distillation are prohibitive
- A complex distillation sequence is required
- The material is heat sensitive
- The material is non-volatile
Our previous experience of liquid-liquid extraction within the chemical industry includes the washing of acids/bases as well as polar compounds from organics, and the recovery of acrylic acids. View a full list of our previous projects here.
