MFG Chemical last week announced completion of an upgrade of its pilot plant in Dalton, Georgia, and plans for a second pilot reactor. The pilot plant makes small quantities of specialty chemicals used in lubricants, such as esters, surfactants and sulfonate and phosphate derivatives.
“The pilot plant is also able to manufacture many types of chemistries that can be used lubricant formulations, such as rheology modifiers, wetting agents and corrosion inhibitors [such as] imidazolines or maleic derivatives,” MFG Chief Science and Technology Officer Guido DeStefano told Lube Report. “The end user markets we assist in the lubricant realm are mostly oilfield, metal working, refrigeration and automotive.”
