Chemicals Processing Equipment - Organic, Inorganic & Plastics

The production of organic acids and salts, inorganic catalyst and chlorides and plastics require the use of conveying and processing equipment. KWS specializes in designing and manufacturing equipment for the harsh and dangerous chemical industry environment. KWS has built thousands of conveyors for metering and conveying chemicals such as adipic acid, caustic soda, iron oxide, polyethylene and polypropylene. Our conveyors for the chemical industry are highly engineered and very special in design to meet industry requirements. Stainless steel or high-nickel alloy construction is required to withstand the corrosiveness of the chemicals. Vapors and toxic gases are contained with our pressure-tight designs.
