MEC has provided process engineering and technical consulting for a complete chemical plant for polishing of a new super-conductor production line

An Italian company in the field of R&D and fabrication of components for the Physics Research Institutes has been involved in a production of super-conductives cavities for the European project XFEL. A new plant has been setup, including a chemical polishing line with a BCP (buffering chemical polishing) a EP (electro-polishing) and a final cleaning with UPW (ultra pure water)


MEC has worked with client’s engineers to deliver:

  • process and technology of BCP (buffering chemical polishing with acids)
  • technology and protorype of EP (electro-polishing)
  • process engineering and consulting of UPW (ultra pure water)
  • technical consulting and support on procurement and installation
  • support of plant startup

Industry 4.0, which combines digital and physical advanced technologies, can potentially transform the chemicals industry, itself the backbone of many end-market industries. Through the dual areas of business operations and growth, these technologies enable “smart” supply chains and factories, as well as create new business models.

MEC is fully involved in promoting Technologies and Industry 4.0 within Energy market.
