Installed capacity and production
Our plant is a multipurpose site, optimized for maximum flexibility and low setup costs for changing products. Total reactor capacity is 50 cubic meters, enabling us to produce small quantities of a few kilograms as well as lot sizes reaching several hundred kilograms. The pilot scale plant we are running on the site is equipped with reactors containing between 100 and 400 liters.
We continually expand and optimize processes and production facilities which include stainless steel and glasslined 600 liter to 6,000 liter vessels, vertical centrifuges, and filter nutsches. We apply dynamic and static methods for drying ingredients using paddle dryers, tray dryers and a double cone dryer.
In 2013, we are adding a horizontal peeling centrifuge made of corrosion-resistant Hastelloy® superalloy to our state-of-the-art separation systems. The centrifuge has already been installed under clean room conditions, and will be operating in a Class D clean room.
Packaging materials, intermediates and raw materials are kept in separate special storage rooms. The one-way flow of materials from start to finish minimizes the risk of cross contamination. Finished products are stored in air conditioned rooms which meet all applicable technical and safety standards, as reflected in our certifications.
Environmental protection also is a high priority for Chemische Fabrik Berg. We operate waste-water treatment facilities and an incinerator with afterburner for exhaust air.
