Soft drinks process charts
The production of soft drinks usually takes place following the same process: the drinking or spring water stored in inertised tanks is freed from unwanted constituents, in particular oxygen; it is then mixed with beverage concentrates and optionally carbonated. The finished soft drinks are finally filled into bottles or cans at filling stations and delivered to the market.
Sulphate process paper
The sulphate process (also known as "Kraft digestion" because of the strength of the paper made using it) is the most common process for making paper pulp from cellulose. Lignin contained in the plant material is separated by cooking in an alkaline medium containing sodium sulphate and sodium hydroxide ("white liquor"). The pulp is screened, washed and bleached. By clever combination of process steps, the chemicals used can be largely recovered, with gases increasingly being used here.
Sulphur chemistry process chart
The raw material for sulphuric acid production is elemental sulphur, which is produced during the processing of fossil raw materials. Sulphur recovery is becoming more and more important due to falling emission limits and is usually realised using the Claus process. 90 % of the sulphur thus obtained is converted to sulphuric acid, which is one of the most technically important and highly produced basic chemicals, and is used to a great extent in fertiliser production.
Messer supports you with know-how in process optimisation, for example through the elimination of capacity bottlenecks.
Tobacco process chart
Die Aufbereitung der Tabakblätter ist der wichtigste Schritt in der Herstellung von Tabakwaren. Zur Volumenvergrößerung der zerkleinerten Pflanzen werden Gase von Messer eingesetzt.
Our use of the resource water should be both sustainable and cost-effective. In waste water treatment the industrial gases oxygen and carbon dioxide are used to clean even heavily polluted wastewater thoroughly and economically and to facilitate its reuse.
