4  Description of the process  The company is engaged in the production of chemicals and chemical reagents for industry, research laboratories and various industrial specialties for the Polish and foreign market.
In chemical production in plant we use chemical reactions in water solutions and partially in organic solvents. Volume of reactions is between few liters to 3 cubic meters. In production we use a set of reactors and vessels arranged according to needs.

Used equipment:

- Universal chemical reactors (e.g. Lampart) heated by saturated steam, by electricity or natural gas equiped equipped with mixers and/or covers;
- Filter presses – filtration systems working with pumps;
- Vessels for densification or crystallization;
- centrifuges
- distillers and separation columns;
- dryers
- absorbers, adsorbers, scrubers and other devices for reducing the emission.
