Purification to separate the product of interest from the rest of its components, starting from a liquid mixture, a solid mixture or a liquid-solid mixture, is a common need across different industries, from chemical processing to food and beverage.

We provide support to industries in finding the ideal process solution to satisfy even the most stringent and demanding requirements.

Our process solutions

We provide effective solutions based on thermal separation technologies and their combination, such as:

  • Evaporation
  • Distillation
  • Stripping
  • Crystallization

With special expertise in processing temperature sensitive, high boiling, viscous and fouling products and, with a state-of-the-art evaporators’ portfolio, we also fulfil the most challenging specifications.

For complex mixture requiring more operation stages, we help customers identify the proper sequence; reaction and concentration units can also be part of our offer, as well filtration and drying.

To identify the specific process solution to achieve product purity specifications, we rely on our R&D centre equipped with process simulation software and laboratory and pilot units. Tests are run on samples provided by the customer to select process equipment, to study product behaviour, to identify the ideal process parameters and to support scale-up. Customer process validation and reliability verification tests are run on request.
Physical and chemical parameters are also determined: boiling point, density, viscosity, solubility, chemical composition (e.g., composition of the initial product, distillate and concentrate).

From the initial concept and testing to detailed engineering and plant start-up, a dedicated team of scientists and engineers are available to assist and support our customers, working together one step at a time.
