Introducing Our New HWL ASAP Program

Due to our carefully selected parameters, the EKATO HWL agitators offer the shortest possible lead times. As a result of our innovative agitator design, reliability, and robustness, your maintenance costs will be greatly reduced.

Industries We Serve


Mixing technology is involved in many unit operations in the production of polymers, chemical intermediates, APIs or fertilizers and of the consumer goods derived from those as paints, adhesives, sealants, lubricants etc.

Agitation fulfills different requirements in batch-wise or continuously operated reactors: optimum blending of liquid and solid components, mass transfer in multi phase systems and the transfer of the reaction heat.

Chemical products are processed using a combination of thermal and mechanical techniques. The agitators used here have a major impact on their quality and properties

EKATO provides a comprehensive know-how for the scale up and design of such complex plants.

Common Applications in the Chemical Industry:

  • Base chemicals
  • Fine chemicals
  • Specialty chemicals
  • Polymers
  • Active pharmaceutical ingredients
  • Fertilizers

Polymer Production and Chemical Polymer Recycling

In the plastics manufacturing the number of different products and processes is manifold. Polymerization or polycondensation processes follow different mechanisms. They might run batchwise or continuously. For this vast range of applications EKATO can help to find out the mixing requirements in order to find an optimum mixing solution.

Advanced plastics recycling, also called chemical recycling, refers to several different technologies that convert used plastics into their original building blocks, specialty polymers, feedstocks for new plastics, fuels, waxes, and other valuable products.

Whether it’s Polymerization or De-Polymerization, EKATO is the dependable partner to elevate your processes to new heights.
