VTA Verfahrenstechnische Anlagen GmbH & Co. KG, based in Niederwinkling, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of MAX STREICHER GmbH & Co. KG aA and specialised in the field of thermal process engineering.

The main focus of production is on wiped film and short path distillation plants at laboratory, pilot and industrial scale as well as the manufacturing of related components. These distillation plants are operated for purification, concentration, removal of low boilers, colour improvement and drying of products in various industries.

Highly qualified and responsible professionals ensure the highest quality standards. They are the foundation of the sustainable development of VTA. From process development, via trials to the finished plant or the execution of a toll distillation, everything comes from one single source at VTA.

The close coordination of process development, design and manufacturing enables VTA to quickly respond to customer requests even during the manufacturing phase. Thus, the best possible solution even for complex problems is achieved for customers. VTA is a problem solver! Company.

Laboratory Plants

With laboratory units, reliable conclusions about the feasibility of a separation process can be made by only using small product amounts. The set-up and design of the lab units VTA offers to customers is based on the experience gained in VTA’s own test centre for years.

Pilot Plants

Main target is to generate scalable data and results during the pilot tests (with small sample quantities) to enable a later scale up to industrial systems. Furthermore these pilot systems can be used for distillation or drying of small product quantities.Experience, gained by experiments with a variety of products in VTA’s own pilot plants, has influenced the design and continuously improves the quality and performance of the systems.

Pilot plants are used for:

Industrial Plants

VTA provides industrial scale systems as package units. Package units are skid mounted, pre- assembled systems for wiped film and short path distillation, rectification and thin film drying.
