6 processes under one roof

Besides our provision of logistic services, clients choose TPT because of the specific opportunities we offer to further develop products. We have the ability to add value. We have the following business-specific facilities which enable us to achieve this:

Screening plant

We screen powders based on particle size. We screen, for example, particles smaller than 20 or 30 mµ from bulk material. For this screening process, we utilise an airclassifier.

Drying plant
In order to lower the humidity of different powders to the desired level, solid substances are exposed to warm air in flash dryers.

Calciner/Rotary kiln
The powders are calcinated at temperatures of up to 800
oC in a rotating drum.

Centrifuge
In order to filter emulsions, we have various filter types with all the accompanying accoutrements.

Mixing plant
With the versatile mixing plant we are able to mix or or react liquid chemicals, powders or a combination of powders and liquids.

Ammonia plant
This plant enables us to use ammonia (NH3 99,7%) for the production of ammonium chlorides like ammonium acetate, ammonium propionate and ammonium formate.

Our plants are connected to each other. We can use them separately, but are also able to use them as one whole.
