Ryland Research - Engineering Expertise in the Process Industry

The customer wanted to develop a range of Calcium Sulphonate Complex Greases for the mining industry in North America.  We met this requirement with a pilot plant that could accurately replicate the characteristics of a full-scale plant.

We adapted a skid mounted Scanima Turbomixer, originally designed for the food industry.  The Turbomixer provides vigorous agitation during the complex formation.  This gives a better yield and a more even reaction.

We sold the pilot plant to a Merseyside grease manufacturer after we completed the work for our US client.
