The base for plenty of products for a better life

Applications – process-specific equipment

The Chemical Industry requires specialised process equipment which is adapted to the specific needs of each production process. Among others, the tasks to be covered by the equipment consist of the purification of the desired product from remaining monomers, the separation of catalysts from reaction products, the recycling of product from waste streams and the product split into target fractions.

The SMS equipment covers a wide range of process tasks in the chemical industry, based on a long-term experience and a very special process knowledge.

Inside Excellence in process technologies: We are number 1 in thin film evaporation technology and a global leader in drying and high viscosity technology. Take a look inside our technology brochure:



Evaporation Technology

We offer the world’s largest selection of thin film evaporators and build customer-specific equipment for the evaporation of materials which are difficult to process such as viscous, fouling, and heat sensitive liquids.

Drying Technology

Depending on the requirements, we combine and customise drying processes and components to suit the product properties so that, for example, toxic or explosive materials can be safely and efficiently processed.

High Viscosity Technology

Our thin film processors and large volume reactors for the manufacture and preparation of polymers are world leaders and guarantee the very highest quality and efficiency as well as excellent process results.

The German way of joint innovation

Recognising innovation is continuous optimization: Innovation is an evolutionary process which continuously creates added value for our customers.

  • Cooperation with our customers
    Working with our customers results in continuous enhancement of the functionality and efficiency of their plants. This is our main driving force of joint innovation.
  • Challenging of "traditional" processes 
    Even processes which have been performed successfully over the years may have potential for innovation, sometimes in minor details and components and sometimes in entire process steps.
  • Innovative tools as a base for innovative solutions
    Recent developments in computation allow deep insights into process details, thus generating new knowledge as a base for innovation.
