Agitators for the chemical industry

The chemical industry requires the application of a large number of very different processes, which differ in terms of: results to be obtained, procedures to be applied and physical and chemical characteristics of the products involved.

PRO-DO-MIX® has been a partner of many years to national and international chemical industry players. Its vertical agitators and equipment allow all chemical processes to be handled with the greatest peace of mind, including:

– Mixing;

– Preparation of chemicals and polymers;

– Suspension of solids;

– Gas dispersion;

– Combination or reaction with gases.

Thanks to the solid collaboration with the international leader NOV/Chemineer, the PRO-DO-MIX® product range is able to meet even highly specific requirements, enabling to build fluid treatment systems complete with static mixers and Kenics heat exchangers, generally used in the production of polymers and plastics, as well as top-entry or side-entry ATEX agitators.

In addition to the equipment mentioned above, polymer production plants can also include: batch reactors, continuous process reactors, tubular reactors and heat exchangers.
