Involving precise processes, and life-savers
In the processing industries involving chemicals and pharmaceuticals, refrigeration has become absolutely necessary. It takes starting materials and products to the required temperatures. Or, it cools after chemical processes have developed heat. And sometimes refrigeration simply enables making something very small out of something very large: for example, air or industrial gases, for which liquefying greatly economizes transport and storage.
In the chemical, petrochemical, and pharmaceutical industries, it is often necessary to run processes at a precisely specified temperature, or to prevent media and products from exceeding a certain temperature level – regardless of ambient conditions. Our systems and plants, for example, ensure constancy here. Examples of application are many and various. Many processes take place in the chemical industry with the release of heat. Our machines can subsequently return the product to the required temperature level. This is necessary in some processes not only for practical reasons, but also to ensure safety. For compression processes, in addition, it is unavoidable that the compressed material heats up and often requires cooling.
In case of the production of chemicals heat reactions and pressure differences may occur that can only be controlled by the utilization of sophisticated refrigeration systems. The same goes for the preservation of product properties or the prevention of unintended side reactions.
The production and storage of medicines in the pharmaceutical industry usually takes place by means of controlled temperatures. Also the rooms where the processes take place (clean rooms) cannot do without temperature and air control (airco).
