Basic and specialty chemicals are industrially produced raw materials and substances that are used as starting material or additive for the production of many industrial goods. Those chemicals are of great importance for example for the production of plastics, paints and fine chemicals. Many of these substances are classified as toxic, corrosive or flammable hazardous goods and must be safely transported and handled.
Wilhelm Schmidt transport containers have been used for many years for the approved international transport of these media in liquid form. In close cooperation with customers and authorities, we have developed a product program that is designed for the specific chemical and it’s transport regulations. Our system are proven for example for the transport of ammonia solutions, chlorosulfonic acid, highly concentrated nitric acid, peroxides and ethanol.
Typical type series used: K, F, FC, GF, RF
Analytics and Drug Manufacturing
Laboratory and Fine Chemicals
Fine chemicals are used by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies as additives and reagents for the production of pharmaceutical agents and active ingredients. Within life science solvents are needed in laboratories for analytical and preparative chromatography (HPLC) and chemical synthesis. It is characteristic for these substances that they are classified as hazardous goods and often required in various quantities and degrees of purity.
Wilhelm Schmidt realized early that manufacturers, fillers and end users require a reliable supply and disposal logistics for these media. This results in our product portfolio of transport containers, stainless steel cans and bottles and dispensing equipment. Our systems guarantee safe and easy filling and discharging and are reusable to built-up a sustainable supply chain. Since many years we are supplying to renowned manufacturers and distributors of acetonitrile, methanol, dichloromethane, isopropanol and specialties for the DNA and RNA technology.
Typical type series used: TA, TB, K, F, GF, Stainless Steel Cans
UHP Chemicals and Performance Materials
Semiconductors became a natural part of everyday life and can be found in every computer, smartphone or tablet. They are crucial for the energy transition and electromobility by generating energy through photovoltaics and by storing energy through lithium-ion batteries. The production of semiconductor components such as microchips, light-emitting diodes and wafers requires high-purity process media. These chemicals are aggressive and very sensitive to environmental conditions.
Wilhelm Schmidt offers special container systems that meet the high requirements for tightness, purity, chemical resistance and transport regulations. For latest high-tech products such as smartphone functionalities we modify our systems together with customers. Our products have excellent references in the semiconductor field for the transport of high purity solvents, silanes and organometallic liquids. Optoelectronics uses our stainless steel containers for tetrachlorides and silicon tetrahalides that are needed for the production of fibre optical cables.
Typical type series used: FE, FC, E
Liquid Crystals for Flat Screens
Flat screens have replaced classic CRT monitors and enabled the breakthrough of smartphones and tablet computers. This success is based on liquid crystals which are the core of the LCD, LED and OLED technology. The production and transport of these highly complex substances requires absolutely pure and particle-free conditions to guarantee the quality of the final product.
Wilhelm Schmidt is a partner of leading liquid crystal manufacturers since the breakthrough of this technology. Our containers are used for production and the subsequent transport to the equipment manufacturers. These special containers guarantee complete product protection and optimized discharge of these very efficient substances.
Typical type series used: FC, FE, E
Additives for Oil, Natural Gas & LPG
Natural gas, biogas, LPG and LNG are becoming increasingly important as more climate-friendly fuels. Many of these substances have no odor and are potentially dangerous. For this reason they are added odor-intensive additives, so-called odorants. Also for petroleum processing various substances are used for refining and marking. Since these additives smell strong leak-free transport and storage containers are required.
Wilhelm Schmidt has been producing stainless steel containers for these substances for decades. Our odorant containers are used worldwide by chemical manufacturers, energy suppliers and plant builders. We are your partner for the transport and handling of additives such as thiophenes and mercaptans.
