adphos opens expanded application center

The expanded facility is available for the company’s experts and customers for testing and training purposes.

Thermal processes specialist adphos has moved into the completely modernized technical center at its headquarters in Bruckmühl – Heufeld in Germany, increasing its testing facilities thanks to an advanced pilot plant available for the adphos experts and their customers for testing and training purposes.

In the spacious premises with a wide range of versatile equipment, almost all scenarios of thermal drying, heating, sintering or curing can be simulated and improved.

The possible applications range from thin film drying and thermal processes to thick film, low viscosity, slurry and even powder coatings. Application-relevant drying tests are possible for aqueous and solvent-based processes.

adphos has been successful in thermal processes for decades with its patented aNIR-technology.

‘With the modernization of the company´s own technical center, it is now possible to respond even more efficiently to customer wishes and satisfy their requirements in a more application focused way,’ said the company in a statement.

The pilot plant can be adjusted modularly to the respective customer specific temperature-controlled processes and enhanced through accurate in-line measurements.

These developments allow more and more specific applications to be decisively advanced prior to industrial implementation. In addition, various options for customized rental equipment and demonstration systems at customer sites are also offered.
