Moving Ahead

Sulzer Chemtech Ltd, a member of the Sulzer Corporation,

with headquarters in Winterthur, Switzerland, is active in the
field of process engineering and employs some 1500 persons worldwide.

Sulzer Chemtech is represented in all key industrial areas

of the world and is a technology leader in the field of mass
transfer and static mixing, with its advanced and economical

The activity program comprises:

Process components such as trays, structured and
random packings, internals for separation columns
and reaction technology
Engineering services for separation and reaction
technology such as optimizing energy consumption,
plant optimization studies, pre-engineering for
governmental approval and basic engineering
Separation and purification of organic chemicals by
means of crystallization and membranes
Mixing and reaction technology with static mixers

Replacement service

Our knowledge and long-term experience combined

with continuous product development to provide the
advantage you need in todays highly competitive environment.

Sulzer Chemtech was built on innovation and the key to

our success continues to be ongoing development of new
ideas and concepts. The Mellapak structured packing and
the Sulzer static mixer are two of our most well-known
technological breakthroughs. Their introduction in the late
70s represented a leap forward in mass transfer technology.
Since then, thousands of columns have been revamped with
structured packing to increase capacity or improve purity.
The combination of our broad knowledge, long term experience and the passion for innovation allows us to offer unique
solutions and create value for our customers worldwide.

Sulzer Chemtech has manufacturing facilities throughout the

world so that you can obtain service from local representatives in almost every country. Global manufacturing gives us
the flexibility to provide the most cost effective solution and
fast deliveries. Sulzer Chemtech is certified in accordance to
ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001:2004.
Sulzer Chemtech allows you to do business locally, no
matter where you are.

Mixing and Reaction Technology

Sulzer Quadro - The Disposable Mixers

For decades, Sulzer Chemtech has been involved in co-current flow processing for the homogenization and dispersion
of gases and liquids and the optimization of heat and mass
transfer in single-, or multiphase, laminar or turbulent flows.
We combine years of mixing and reaction technology experience with the latest methods in development, engineering
and fabrication to help you meet the processing challenges
of tomorrow.
In principle, static mixing denotes mixing without mechanical stirring elements. All movement takes place solely in the
components being mixed. The products are mixed by flow
energy alone, with fixed-position mixing elements causing
continuous split-off, expansion and redistribution of the flow.
Pumps create the flow energy for mixing. In practice, small
volumes, low maintenance, simple installation and removal
and excellent reliability characterize the static mixer.
Mixing and reaction technology is used in continuous
processes throughout the processing industries. Sulzer
Chemtech is a technology leader with innovative ideas and
products that continually set new standards, offering many
technical and commercial advantages.

Sulzer Quadro is the unique square, powerful, small disposable mixer with a low pressure drop. The invention sets a new
standard in the mixing of reactive Adhesives. Sulzer Quadro
is used for both cartridge applications and two component
dispensing machines. The outstanding mixer design was developed using the latest computer simulations and extensive
testing in our research laboratories.
The pressure drop of the Sulzer Quadro is dramatically lower
than helical type mixers of the same dimensions. This leads
to economic and easy dispensing even when the products
are of very high viscosities. This is extremely important when
the mixer is used with the manual dispensing of 2K-cartridges.
Sulzer Quadro has also reduced the mixer length to a minimum, making it possible to move extremely close to the application point. The housing is very strong due to the square
shape. These features provide a precise and accurate dispensing of all kinds of resins, such as glues, adhesives, sealing materials, coatings and foams.
The extremely short and compact mixer design of the Sulzer
Quadro is the key to considerable cost savings. The volume
of the Sulzer Quadro is up to 50 % lower than other disposable mixers for the same degree of mixing. Considerable cost
savings are achievable thanks to the low waste volume in the
mixer giving improved usage of the valuable adhesive.
