Despite the economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic Gebr. Lödige Maschinenbau GmbH has received one of the largest single orders in its over 80-year history: The global company known as Lödige Process Technology on the international stage will supply an Asian chemical company with a total of six machines.
More specifically, the order comprises five large reactors of the Druvatherm® DVT series with a drum volume of over 20,000 liters each and an additional smaller pilot machine for product and process development. The reactors are used to chemically convert cellulose fibers under high pressure so that they can then be used by the building materials, food and pharmaceuticals industry.
Lödige's Druvatherm® reactors can perform several process steps – for instance reaction and drying – in a single machine under ideal conditions.
