Engineering & Consulting

The life cycle of a process plant starts with the process development, goes through engineering, erection and commissioning and includes finally the maintenance over the full life time. EKATO offers services for all these steps: lab and pilot tests in R&D including flow simulation (CFD) for the design basis and the scale up to the production scale. The Basic Engineering for the main components, i.e. the reactor vessel with its agitator, based on state of the art tools like the Finite Element Analysis. The scope of supply can be extended to the periphery of a reactor or to a turn-key plant including the control system. The planning and implementation of a maintenance concept completes the service package of EKATO.

EKATO operates several R&D  centres in Germany and the US to develop solutions for new technologies and thus meet the growing demands for cost-, energy-, and raw material efficiency.

Because process-engineering applications always form a functional unit, they require optimum coordination between the agitator, the vessel, and its components and cannot be considered individually.

The finite element method (FEM) is used to gain a deeper insight into the mechanical design of agitators, vessels, and their components. It allows a more reliable design, thereby preventing damage and loss of production.
