It is the industrial sector where natural raw materials (like petroleum, natural gas, air, water) are transformed into basic chemical products, which are used in the production of intermediates for other specialized sectors such as adhesives, colouring, fuels, paints etc.
It is a sub-category of the chemical industry. A field of application in continuos growth, that always requires much more reliable manufacturing and machineries. The added value obtained with some patented productions is very important. In spite of basic chemical products, whose selling price is low, pharmaceutical products convey a lot of investements made by research and development (i.e. API Active Pharmaceuticals Ingredients)
It is the sector where semi-worked and/or raw materials transformation allows to create finished products used in the field of consumer goods (food, galvanic, electronic, enviroment etc.) or specialized ones.
Take a look at the new 2018 CDR Pompe in action. New 'X' series magnetic drive pumps with open impeller and improved internal flushing system. Designed specifically for pumping solutions with suspended solids, and resist to short dry-running thanks to the SSIC diamond bushings. Using a magnetic coupling, instead of a mechanical seal with external flushing system, drastically minimize the installation and maintenance costs.
