How We Solve Chemical Problems

LCI Corporation offers customized solutions and process expertise to solve your most difficult liquid and solid chemical application problems. From handling your most difficult thermal separation processes to developing pelletization systems, LCI has process experts ready to develop the customized solution to fit your specific needs. LCI's core products include thin/wiped film evaporators, short path evaporators, high viscosity processors, thin-film dryers, and extrusion-spheronization/pelletization equipment. LCI also offers solid handling equipment that can assist with difficult to feed materials.

Liquid Applications

Our process solutions allow us to solve problems that were previously difficult or impossible for our clients, including:

  • Strip solvents from temperature sensitive products
  • Process foul-prone or foaming products
  • Maintain consistent product quality with short residence times and narrow product quality distribution
  • Obtain high product purity by stripping out impurities down to very low residual levels
  • Increase heat transfer and flowability for viscous concentrated products up to 15,000,000 cp
  • Shorten residence resulting in better product quality, consistency, repeatability, and control especially for once through continuous configurations
  • Purification and separation of chemical products including petrochemicals, bio-based chemicals, polymers, resins, plastics, food, pharmaceuticals
  • Complete reactions, desolventize, or de-monomerize plastics and resins
  • Recover solvents to minimize waste streams and increase ROI
  • Run at deep vacuums to distill high-boiling or temperature sensitive materials

Solids Applications

Our process solutions allow us to solve problems that were previously difficult or impossible for our clients, including:

  • Pelletize powder additives to improve their bulk density and allow for improved subsequent processing
  • Create spherical pellets of absorbents resulting in enhanced absorption
  • Achieve better dosing with easier to handle pelletized form from powders
  • Develop spherical pellets with narrow particle size distribution allowing for better gas flow in packed columns
  • Provide a dust free, easier to handle form of a powder that is more attractive to consumers
  • Obtain better product consistency
  • Minimize the issues caused by spills and eliminate the risk of splash with a solid form
  • Lower the risk of inhalation with a non-dusting form
  • Eliminate issues with bridging or flow of difficult to feed material
  • Benefit from formulation and technical support from process experts
