The main focus of production are thin film and short path distillation plants at laboratory, pilot and industrial scale as well as the manufacturing of the components. These distillation plants are operated for purification, concentration, removal of low boilers, colour improvement and drying of products in various industries. Thin film evaporators can also be used as reboilers for distillation columns. There are applications for thin film distillation in the chemical, agrochemical, pharmaceutical, polymer and food chemistry industries.
In addition to the manufacturing of plants and apparatus for wiped film and short path distillation, VTA performs feasibility studies, process development, laboratory and pilot trials. The tests are carried out on laboratory and pilot plants of different design and size in the company's technical centre.
Moreover, the company offers toll distillation for a wide range of different products.
