The chemical industry is the industrial sector that concerns the transformation of raw materials (including oil, natural gas, air, water, metals and minerals) to obtain products with different physical-chemical properties compared to starting raw materials ( including: cosmetics, drugs, paints, synthetic materials, fuels, additives, food colors, etc.)
In the chemical industry, special care must be taken in the design and construction of mechanical components. In fact, most mechanical parts for the chemical industry are designed to operate with aggressive fluids, dangerous and polluting liquids, or extreme temperature conditions that these fluids can reach during processing.
Reliability and security
For this reason, the reliability and safety of the design and construction system must be maximum to allow production procedures to operate in total safety and functionality. In fact, chemically inert materials are often used to make mechanical parts and, depending on the specific application area, different materials can be used.
UFG srl has production standards for the needs of our customers in the chemical industry and for the production of mechanical parts for the chemical industry in total compliance with current regulations.
Some of the applications implemented are:
- Hoppers and slides
