The quality of the products is a key to success in the chemical industry. We develop concepts for the smooth and accurate flow of your production processes. Our scientific competence and variable simulation methods help you to achieve these goals.
The chemical industry offers many opportunities for technical improvements, which directly or indirectly affect products and process performance. The targeted use of simulations can succeed to reduce the total costs, save energy, minimize environmental impact, or to optimize the entire process and results. Both internal and external factors can be described by our simulations.
Our Services for Chemistry:
At a reactor, numerous factors influence the functionality. An example are currents within the reactor. These can be selectively targeted influenced by the construction of the reactor and as result, the efficiency of the reaction can be improved. In addition to material flux, the temperature has an huge impact. It can affect external factor and also the reaction itself. By using FEM simulations temperature gradients, currents, and other factors within the reactor can be analysed. Moreover, external influences on the reaction can be included in the simulation.
A variety of chemical products would not, or at least not economically be produced without catalysts. Meanwhile, the underlying reaction mechanisms are under scientific investigations. This has made it possible to design very specific catalysts. We support you with our simulations.
Scaling of Laboratory Experiments
New techniques in chemical industry are often developed by test series. However these are usually performed with small amounts of materials. Going from laboratory scale, to larger quantities, minor effects at laboratory scale can result in large influences at production. Examples are temperature changes and formation of gas during reaction. With FEM simulations these effects can be scaled to the total amount.
