Project specific agitators and systems for industrial mixing and blending
Our company supplies customer and project specific agitators, as well as complete reactors to process oriented industries for a variety of applications.
In addition to the classical top-entry arrangement, bottom entry agitators, side-entry agitators and complete reactors are also available. The capability of fractional-horsepower (FHP) to 4000 HP agitators match growing trends in reactor designs.
High-quality industrial agitators and custom-built solutions
We produce high-quality engineered industrial agitators. EKATO FLUID delivers agitators with qualification approval according to 94/9/EG (ATEX) for maximum safety, and is also certified according to DIN ISO 9001:2008.
Our various qualifications allow us to custom-build solutions within a short delivery time for a wide range of applications. Sealing systems from product line EKATO ESD and optimized impeller types are part of our product range.
Agitator specific designs for various mixing applications
EKATO ESD provides agitator specific designs to address various customer mixing applications, including bulk chemicals, plastics, specialty chemicals and hydrometallurgy.
We offer a range of seal design solutions for customer process challenges such as vessel temperatures from -60°C up to 400°C, high-pressures up to 200 bar, extreme sterility, batch / continuous operation and long service life. Our seal designs include supply of ancillary pressure compensators and automatic supply systems.
Design, manufacture and supply of mixing and drying systems
Processing bulk solids is important for our business, which includes drying, mixing, granulation, melting, heating, cooling and wetting. A team of experienced specialists designs, develops and supplies equipment, systems and modules for your process requirements.
Dryers from the product series EKATO SOLIDMIX are offered to customers in the chemical, pharmaceutical, food, and environmental industries.
Our process engineering staff offers support in pilot-plant testing and reliable scale-up to commercial dimensions. They also provide support for the design, manufacture and supply of mixing and drying systems. Installation, commissioning and after-sales service is guaranteed by our worldwide field engineering network.
Reactor modules for the chemical industry and biotechnology
Our company provides conceptual design and scale-up, basic and detailed engineering, to provide reactor vessel and agitator, and ancillary support equipment.
Our deliverables are tailored to customer requirements for each project, which may include basic and detailed engineering and delivery of reactor skids including peripherals. Our adapted process and equipment design offers reduced interface management for customers, one partner for reactor module, and optimized investment and operating costs.
Mixers for creams, ointment and emulsion production
The UNIMIX system offers a versatile mixer for the production of creams, ointments and emulsions in the cosmetics and pharmaceuticals industries. Our technology combines the patented PARAVISC impeller with homogenizer S-JET or S-JET/V positioned vertically, directly at the lowest point in the vessel.
Our services include process engineering consultation, pilot plant tests from three to 1,000l, scale-up for production, planning, construction and delivery of mixing and drying systems.
We also provide services that include mechanical seals and supply systems. Installation, start-up and after-sales care is offered by our global service network.
High-pressure homogenizer for the production of emulsions
The NANOMIX system manufactures extremely fine-particle emulsions and suspensions through high pressure homogenizing of liquids and solids to <100nm for the production of emulsions, ointments, creams and microcapsules.
Over the past 80 years, EKATO has developed to a worldwide market leader in optimized mixing technology for all process-oriented industries. Our headquarters and main production facilities are located in Schopfheim, Germany.
Family-owned since it was founded in 1933, EKATO is represented worldwide and has subsidiaries in Europe, Asia, Australia, South America, South Africa and the USA, as well as a network of trading partners.
