Competitiveness through flexibility in the fine and specialty chemical industries
Batch processes must be transparent and flexible
Optimal plant performance, continuous transparency, tailored quality, short development and set-up times – batch production of fine and specialty chemical products require a tremendous degree of flexibility. Benefit from the digital transformation to increase productivity, improve flexibility and the utilization of assets, raw materials, data and processes. Reduce your set-up and downtimes, accelerate new product introduction and improve time-to-market.
Producing batches flexiblyThanks to our integrated and scalable solutions for intermittent production, you have everything working to your advantage when it comes to the flexibility, process efficiency, and product quality of your batch processes. Our modular automation solutions can be flexibly applied to suit your production methods and plant size – for efficient batch production even in rapidly changing market conditions.
Flexible process. Consistent quality.
Your batch process often requires you to switch from one product or recipe to another. Every single batch must be produced precisely to required specifications and with complete documentation while upholding product quality. Our batch automation solutions ensure high management and batch control flexibility with minimal set-up times. Batch protocols and the integration of inventory and quality data into your automation system provide the required transparency along the entire supply chain – even between different plants scattered around the world. This includes complete batch tracking and quality assessment, from raw materials to the filling and packaging of end products.
Stirred tank reactor
Complete batch tracking, documentation, and quality assessment, from raw material, to the reaction steps, all the way to the filling and packaging of end products – the requirements for a batch reactor are similar to those of continuous processes. By contrast, batch production depends on market conditions. It requires scalable solutions for extreme flexibility and modular automation. The reactor is the core component of a processing plant. Liquid substances are synthesized in the stirred tank reactor. Stirred tank reactors are thus equipped with a feed and discharge as well as nozzles for inserting measuring instruments. The batch-by-batch performance of reactions requires continuous process monitoring.
