Chemicals

Outstanding quality and comprehensive expertise to satisfy the most demanding requirements


There is hardly any other industry that requires as many filter solutions as the chemical industry due to its wide range of products. The production of plastics, pharmaceuticals, dyes, agricultural chemicals, cleaning agents, cosmetics and many other chemical compounds often requires a combination of different chemical reactions, separation methods and processing steps. These processes are extremely demanding. They require specialised knowledge and technologies. The handling of hazardous chemicals, reactive substances and processes poses risks to both people and the environment. Compliance with strict safety standards, guidelines and regulations is therefore of the utmost importance, as is the development and use of environmentally friendly and sustainable production methods.

As a leading manufacturer of specialised filtration solutions, PACO offers a wide range of filter media and elements for all phases in the production and processing of chemical substances. This includes the separation of solids from liquids, the removal of impurities, the filtration of solutions or suspensions and the purification of chemicals. In addition, PACO develops and manufactures complete filter and separation systems including all the necessary system elements, which of course fulfil the highest safety requirements for the protection of employees and the environment. Customers worldwide, particularly in the field of polymer filtration, rely on PACO's decades of experience. In addition to the well-known polymer manufacturers, system builders and OEMs in particular rely on PACO as a development partner and supplier of high-quality filter media and special filter solutions. Our extruder screens and melt filters have been used worldwide for decades in the extrusion of plastics, rubber and silicones. Thanks to optimised pleating technology, our filter discs and spin-pack screens have enabled us to increase the throughput volume and thus significantly improve the filtration process. With our modular filter elements, most of a filter candle can be reused after cleaning, thereby not only conserving resources but also saving costs. PACO also offers a sustainable alternative to conventional disposable filter bags in the form of bag filters made of metal wire cloth. In addition, innovative HETA automatic filters in combination with the newly developed HETA FiltraSmart control system and a newly developed backwashable filter cartridge linked to a specially selected pre-separator, ensure unprecedented results in terms of filter fineness and maximum efficiency in continuous filtration.

PACO is your partner for:
