Artisan’s expertise in the field of monomer and polymer processing can help you address the increase uses of environmental impacts of plastics and bioplastics.
Removing solvents or odors from monomers and low viscosity polymers can be difficult, especially in a single continuous pass or as a batch process. Purifying high viscosity polymers is even more difficult, since both heat and mass transfer rates are inhibited.
Whether you’re removing impurities to lower levels or reducing trace odors to meet your customer’s stringent specifications, Artisan has the know-how to help you achieve your goals.
Our ability to strip to low ppm levels, without product degradation, is unmatched. Our process technology has helped major manufacturers stay ahead of the competition for over 80 years.
Artisan’s mechanically agitated, thin-film, short-residence-time process technology is ideally suited for heat-sensitive and viscous materials or products that foul, foam, or contain solids. Our equipment can process materials with viscosities up to 1 million centipoise.
