Cleaners and detergents

Precise, formula-controlled systems with LEWA

LEWA designs continuously operating, formula-controlled systems for manufacturing household and industrial cleaners, accommodating all commercially available surfactant concentrations—from raw material to finished product.

Surfactants, utilized as the main active ingredients, exhibit unique properties: each molecule features a hydrophobic and a hydrophilic end, making them essential in various applications. LEWA not only provides these systems but also supports the production and processing of surfactants. For more in-depth information, please refer to our Chemical Industry overview and the example application in Systems for Surfactant Processing.
