The properties of a plastic do not only depend on the base polymer. With additives, the basic properties can be modified during processing, for example, for a higher elasticity or better light stability of a plastic.
At Kunststoff-Zentrum Leipzig, innovative plastics made from renewable raw materials are being developed and tested as part of a funding project.The researchers are also looking at plasticisers, some of which are now discredited for health hazards. The aim is the use of harmless alternatives or the avoidance of these substances.
High-Pressure Dosing Pumps for organic liquids, aggressive media or liquid gases. Perfect for chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
The dosing pumps are used in a new production process of methanesulfonic acid (MSA), directly from methane and sulfur trioxide. In order to realize the special customer requirements, KNAUER has developed and configured the dosing pumps exactly together with the customer Grillo AG.
KNAUER high-pressure dosing pumps are based on HPLC technology and inherently provide high chemical resistance, excellent flow rate precision and low pulsation. However, promoting liquid sulfur trioxide required customization, especially with regard to plastic parts in the flow path. Another important prerequisite for the success was the powerful pump head heating offered by KNAUER in order to keep sulfur trioxide fluid even at low flow rates or stoppages.
