In the semiconductor it’s vitally important to maintain the lowest possible levels of elementals in the production, storage, transport, and distribution of their high purity chemicals. Due to their low ion particle shedding and chemical inertness, Edlon’s fluoropolymer technologies are the material of choice.
Fertilizers and pesticides provide essential soil nutrients for agriculture and protecting crops from harmful diseases and insects. This often involves preparing or mixing raw materials to produce customized compounds with unique characteristics. Increasing farm sizes and sophistication in developing countries drives demand for newer and more specialized products and in this energy-intensive industry, efficient operations and large economies of scale in production are key factors.

Water Treatment Chemicals
Due to the corrosive nature of the reaction process, Polyaluminum chloride (PAC) - a water treatment chemical used as a coagulant in the treatment of potable water to reduce turbidity - is produced in glass-lined reactors. We provide technologies, solutions and services to the PAC industry for new plant installations, upgrades for improved uptime, reduced maintenance costs and improved product quality. We also provide complete PAC production facilities.
