Cleaners and detergents

Precise, formula-controlled systems with LEWA

LEWA offers continually operating, formula-controlled systems for the manufacture of household and industrial cleaners in all commercially available surfactant concentrations – from raw product to end product.

We use surfactants as the main active ingredients as they have special properties. Each molecule has one hydrophobic and one hydrophilic end. LEWA also supports surfactant production and processing. You can find more detailed information about this in our Chemical industry description and in the example application Systems for surfactant processing.
