Your source for processing
For decades, we have helped companies around the globe seize new market opportunities. We can provide you with the following equipment you need to help you gain and maintain a competitive advantage in your industry:
- Diaphragm Compressors – PDC Machines’ diaphragm gas compressors are ideal for compressing all types of gases without incurring any leakage or contamination that results from traditional compressors. We are experienced in handling industrial gases, rare, pyrophoric, toxic, synthetic, corrosive and gas mixtures. PDC Machines can provide a standard and custom-designed diaphragm compressor with a comprehensive assortment of options to meet any application. Discharge pressures range from 50 psi to 60,000 psi (3.4 bar to 4137 bar) and power consumption from 3 hp to 200 hp. (2 Kw to 150 kW) and flow rates based on compression ratio to over 3,000 Nm3/hr.
- Pilot Plants - PDC Machines supplies pilot plants on a turnkey basis for a vast array of processes. Our modular skid mounted pilot plant process equipment is completely piped, wired, instrumented, configured and tested requiring minimal installation for trouble-free quick start up. These can be designed as laboratory scale systems, demonstration plants and small scale commercial plants.
- Stirred Metal and Glass Reactors - PDC Machines’ custom designs stirred batch reactors ranging from laboratories, pilot-plants to small scale production applications. Each batch reactor system includes the pressure vessel, supporting stand, mixing assembly, accessories and controls. Capacities range from 1 liter to 50 gallons (189 liters).
- Syringe Pumps - Rugged, industrial heavy-duty simplex and duplex syringe pumps for batch reactions or continuous operation. PDC Machines’ syringe pumps are ideal for handling all types of fluids where pulse-less and extremely accurate flow is required at constant output pressure. Flow rates range from (0.004 mL/min to 4 mL/min) to (0.4 mL/min to 400 mL/min).
- Magnetic Stirrers - PDC Machines’ magnetic stirrers are designed to suit most mixing requirements as laboratory magnetic stirrers, or larger pilot-plant and small scale production applications. Our magnetic mixers are ideal when working with toxic, hazardous or high purity materials to protect the health of the workers, the environment and the integrity of the product. We offer a wide selection of magnetic stirrers with torques ranging from 8 in Ibs to 2,000 in Ibs (0.9 to 226 Nm).
