Hydrogenation plants

Hydrogenation plants made by EKATO - Your fast lane to Production

EKATO specializes in the design and engineering of hydrogenation plant technology, reliable development of a production process, and the mechanical design of hydrogenation plant equipment. 

EKATO operates an Hydrogenation Test Center which has been designed to bridge the gap between bench-scale chemistry and commercial manufacturing. The flexible plant concept allows examining and optimizing your hydrogenation process with original raw materials under real operating conditions in pilot scale. The aim is to produce reliable test results for scale-up and development of a production process in an economical and timely fashion. Our engineering teams will apply the obtained knowledge for design of a full-scale hydrogenation plant which is tailored to your specific process requirements. Thus we pave the way for an efficient and risk mitigated investment in the new construction or the rebuilt of a hydrogenation plant.

Our expertise

EKATO has been investing in the research and development of gas-liquid reactions for decades. For over 80 years, it has been supplying components and systems for three-phase reactors and is particularly knowledgeable and skilled in the field of industrial hydrogenation. The process engineering and optimization of mixing technology as well as the design of complex gas-liquid reactors is therefore one of our core areas of expertise.  

As a manufacturing company with its own resources in the engineering, design, and production of process equipment, EKATO differs considerably from classical engineering contractors. EKATO not only dimensions hydrogenation reactors but also mechanically analyzes them in detail and releases them for production only after a computer-aided, mechanical assessment using FEA.

The reactor and plant equipment developed by EKATO set technological standards and are always individually tailored to the requirements and processes of the customer. They are also robust, reliable, and ideally suited for use in chemical plants. 

Hydrogenation plants – from a single source

From the idea to the implementation, EKATO offers you the delivery of a hydrogenation plant from a single source.

In our Hydrogenation Test Center we can examine and optimize your hydrogenation process with original raw materials under real operating conditions in pilot scale. The aim is to produce reliable test results for scale-up and development of a production process in an economical and timely fashion.

Our engineering teams will apply the obtained knowledge for design of a full-scale hydrogenation plant which is tailored to your specific process requirements. Thus we pave the way for an efficient and risk mitigated investment in the new construction or the rebuilt of a hydrogenation plant
