Engineering & Consulting:

The life cycle of a process plant starts with the process development, goes through engineering, erection and commissioning and includes finally the maintenance over the full life time. EKATO offers services for all these steps: lab and pilot tests in R&D including flow simulation (CFD) for the design basis and the scale up to the production scale. The Basic Engineering for the main components, i.e. the reactor vessel with its agitator, based on state of the art tools like the Finite Element Analysis. The scope of supply can be extended to the periphery of a reactor or to a turn-key plant including the control system. The planning and implementation of a maintenance concept completes the service package of EKATO.


At EKATO your equipment is in good hands – As an advanced solution provider EKATO offers an enhanced level of service as standard, which is unique in the market for agitating systems:

• assembly, installation and start-up of your new EKATO equipment

• customized solutions for your spare part requirements

• preparation of maintenance schedules, supervision & implementation by our specialized EKATO service staff

• customized training programs


All of these services can be offered as part of a customized service agreement.

Furthermore our services extend to support customers by optimizing the mechanical design to provide both increased reliability and increased efficiency. Process operation can also be evaluated and with the use of new technology, improvements can be realized in your processing time, efficiency, absorbed power and even quality of product. To achieve these improvements we draw on state of the art developments which have been developed with over 85 years experience and R&D in mixing technologies. These proposals are not limited to EKATO equipment. We can also undertake evaluations on competitor equipment, mostly with significant results.

Each service task is documented in our digital machine card. This way the current condition and life cycle can always be displayed and analyzed. This service is free of charge for owners of EKATO equipment.

Developments regarding materials and components (e.g. motors, gearboxes, mechanical seals) are all considered in retrofit programs, for example upgraded spare parts may provide improved energy efficiency or increase the life time of wear parts, etc.

For additional improvement of maintenance efficiency and an increase in operating safety EKATO can offer automation solutions for the monitoring of gearboxes and supply systems.

Hydrogenation plants


EKATO specializes in the design and engineering of hydrogenation plant technology, reliable development of a production process, and the mechanical design of hydrogenation plant equipment.


EKATO operates an Hydrogenation Test Center which has been designed to bridge the gap between bench-scale chemistry and commercial manufacturing. The flexible plant concept allows examining and optimizing your hydrogenation process with original raw materials under real operating conditions in pilot scale. The aim is to produce reliable test results for scale-up and development of a production process in an economical and timely fashion. Our engineering teams will apply the obtained knowledge for design of a full-scale hydrogenation plant which is tailored to your specific process requirements. Thus we pave the way for an efficient and risk mitigated investment in the new construction or the rebuilt of a hydrogenation plant.

EKATO Laboratory and Pilot plants ELA


used for process developments in various applications and suitable for EX-proof areas.

ELA 5 is a transportable laboratory plant for the process development of numerous gas-liquid reactions. The plant can be rented for trials at the EKATO laboratories or at your own laboratories.


ELA 50 is a pilot plant installed at the EKATO technology center in a 50 l scale and is preferably used for high-viscous applications. Because of its flexible mixing system, it can be used for a large range of other applications as well. On request, this pilot process plant can be designed and built in different sizes specifically for your requirements.


The EKATO Hydrogenation Test Center HTC is a process development plant in a 60 l scale. It comprises a hydrogenation reactor, a preparation tank for starting or intermediate products, a filtration unit and a filtrate receiver. All vessels are made in Alloy C22 and are equipped with agitators. All units are installed in an EX-proof area and are suitable for operation with flammable liquids and hydrogen.

Hydrogenations can be performed under real production conditions. This provides significant advantages for industrial process development studies: data from trials can be directly used for the design of production-scale hydrogenation units.
