PETROCHEMISTRY


We know how petrochemical products are processed into valuable pre-, intermediate and end products. GIG Karasek has extensive experience for a wide variety of applications.

Application examples:
  • Drying of lubricants for the forging industry
  • oil regeneration

WASTEWATER & RECYCLING


Our plants make it possible to conserve resources through treatment and recovery. For the treatment of waste water, among other things, thin-film dryers are used. You can concentrate and thicken pastes and sludges, dry and dewater. Due to the good product circulation in the dryer, sludge can be dried perfectly. Process water often has to be aftertreated to either dispose of it properly or to recycle it back into the process cycle. This is mostly achieved through process combinations. Thermal processes are the focus of the process conditioning solution. Thin-film dryers are the key component here.

Application examples:
  • Drying of industrial sludges
  • Drying and predrying of municipal sewage sludge
  • Drying of hydroxide sludge

FOOD INDUSTRY


With its technologies, GIG Karasek has had a lasting influence on the production processes in the food industry and food production. It will continue to be our challenge to recognize trends and needs at an early stage and to set benchmarks in new technologies.

Competence and strength in food production – ask for our application references.

Application examples:
  • lecithin drying
  • Melasse drying
  • Concentration of tartaric acid derivatives
