ACHEMA 2018 is an annual exhibition dedicated to technologies and innovations in chemical industry. It starts today in Frankfurt am Main. Our partner company, BASF, will be there this week at Stand C37 in Hall 8. It will present selected products, services, and innovations in high-pressure and surface technologies as well as additive manufacturing.
We have already published news on 3D technologies developed by BASF. You have a perfect option to check them out within Achema. Moreover, we expect demonstration of products developed by equipment division of the corporation. There will be a cross-section of a T-emergency valve used as a safety device for LDPE (low-density polyethylene) plants. The valve with a nominal width of 89 mm is suitable for pressures of up to 3600 bar. Although it weighs around two tons, the valve can be opened or closed in less than 200 milliseconds. BASF develops and supplies safety equipment for the entire LDPE process at a PE producer, making a significant contribution to the safety of its production facilities.
Worldwide, BASF runs more than 40 of its own high-pressure plants at more than 325 bar. It remains to be the only manufacturer to operate the high-pressure components in its own production plants. In addition to high-pressure equipment, fittings, and pipes, the company’s extensive portfolio includes measurement and control components for chemical processes at pressures of up to 3600 bar.
You can find solutions for your business at Achema till the 15th of June.
