SubMicron Filtration Services

As the demands of high performance products and equipment require higher quality specialty chemical components, the difference between an effective and ineffective specialty chemical may come down to the purity and appearance of the product.

Many chemical manufacturing processes produce haze and minute unwanted solids so small that regular bag and cartridge filtration will not suffice. In these cases, SCT is able to remove submicron particles by filtering through filter aid material designed to remove haze minute impurities and affect performance and appearance.

We provide the facilities, technology, and experience all in one place. Keeping costs low and timelines short.

The equipment includes, but is not limited to:

  • Turbidity
  • Sediment
  • Particle Count
  • Kinematic Viscosity
  • Brookfield Viscosity
  • FTIR
  • ICP
  • Gas Chromatography
  • GPC
  • Sulfur Analyzer
  • Automated Titration Equipment
