  • Sugar, starch and sweeteners
    Efficient production of sugar, starch and sweeteners puts high demands on the processing equipment. Thanks to many years of experience and comprehensive process know-how, Sulzer offers a wide portfolio of innovative process pumps, special pumps, mixers, agitators, compressors and aerators for these industry sectors.

  • Metals
    Sulzer’s pumping and mixing solutions for the base and precious metal industry are designed for corrosive and abrasive liquids. We offer expertise e.g. for the production of aluminum, copper, nickel, zinc, and precious metals.

  • Mining
    Whether on the surface or underground, the conditions in mines are harsh. Besides the mud, slurry, stones, and rocks, there are large volumes of water to remove in order to keep production moving. Our dewatering pumps are rugged and ready, taking on the toughest drainage and sludge removal.

  • Biofuels
    Biofuels from renewable sources show great potential as sustainable transportation fuel. Based on our experience in demanding processes, we work with customers to develop advanced pumping, mixing, and distillation solutions for the production of biofuels, from pilot to commercial-scale installations.

  • Fertilizers
    Our pumps, mixers and agitators provide durability and reliability for fertilizers production as well as for corrosive and abrasive liquids and high gas content. Our specific industry experience also includes separation processes and servicing of pumps, compressors, turbines, and motors.

  • Chemicals
