The Service Support Team of the ZwickRoell Helps Süd-Chemie to Keep their Test Systems Running Smoothly

Süd-Chemie India Pvt. Ltd (Süd-Chemie) is a premium manufacturer of base metal and noble metal-based catalysts, various types of Zeolites & Automotive Catalytic Converters.

The vision of the company is to manufacture Catalysts for Sustainability which is why they are focused on speedy development of quality new catalysts at competitive prices, using sustainable chemistries for which Research & Development (R&D) plays a crucial role. .

The Company set up the first indigenous catalyst plant near Kochi (Kerala) for manufacture of the mainstream catalysts for applications in the Ammonia Fertilizer industry.
To maintain its innovative and technological edge, the R&D facilities with state-of-the-art evaluation and scale-up facilities were established at each of the production sites at Kochi & Vadodara. These facilities are recognized by the Department of Scientific & Industrial Research (DSIR), Govt. of India. Both the plants are ISO 9001 certified by BVQI and equipped with ZwickRoell testing machines.

The quality of catalysts is of great significance for Süd-Chemie. To ensure a high level of quality, rigorous incoming goods inspections and ongoing quality control must take place. The zwickiLine 2.5kN materials testing machine is used for these diverse tasks.
This machine is used for testing the crushing strength of tablets.
The zwickiLine is the ideal testing machine for Süd-Chemie since it can be easily implemented for both compression tests and flexure tests, as well as pull-off tests, with minimal setup effort.

ZwickRoell in India service team have completed the remote installation of a 2.5kN Zwicki, based in Süd-Chemie, Kochi plant as a special case due to travel and social distancing measures in place during the coronavirus. ZwickRoell engineer used multiple online platforms to enable the installation of the machine, software and provide necessary training to the end user.

“The remote installation of the machine with ZwickRoell team was a great experience. Service support was available all the time during installation using the digital platform. The overall experience of the installation of 2.5kN UTM was unified and praiseworthy.” quoted by Mr. Rahul. K.R (Executive - QA)
