Active pharmaceutical ingredients (API for short) for the pharmaceutical industry are the main components of pharmaceutical formulations for human and animal use, and must meet the highest levels of quality and reliability in the chemical industry.
Active ingredients can be different in nature and source; they can have a natural origin (i.e. they can be produced by microorganisms, vegetable, or animal, and therefore have an extractive nature), or they can be produced by chemical synthesis.
For over 50 years, Delta has offered more solutions and technologies in line with the highest GMP and EHEDG standards, providing machines designed for API synthesis, filtration, and vacuum drying.
Fine chemical products are used as advanced intermediates in the production of various products, such as aromas and essences, pharmaceuticals, agricultural chemicals, cosmetics, and detergents. Delta specializes in the manufacture of process equipment that is widely used in the production process of companies in this industry, providing technologies for reaction, liquid-solid separation, and vacuum drying.
Food supplements are concentrated sources of nutrients (i.e. minerals and vitamins) or other substances with a nutritional or physiological effect that are marketed in “dose” form (e.g. pills, tablets, capsules, liquids in measured doses). A wide range of nutrients and other ingredients might be present in food supplements, including, but not limited to, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids, fiber, and various plants and herbal extracts.
High quality standards but also large volume of production capabilities are the main features of solutions offered by Delta to this industry.
The petrochemical industry is involved in the transformation of oil and natural gas into chemicals. These raw materials are used to obtain intermediates which are utilized in the production of a variety of chemicals such as plastics, synthetic fibers, rubbers, detergents, and many other widely used products.
High reliability, low operating costs, and large equipment size make Delta an important player in the market of this equipment.
Recovering or extracting precious metals consists of dissolving lower quality material and extracting high value elements. It is an extremely aggressive process due to very harsh conditions (acidity, temperature, pressure).
Delta’s extensive experience in managing high-quality alloy materials makes its solutions ideal for even the most demanding service requirements.
Surfactants are the main components of soaps that generate an interface between the water and the oil, allowing the detergency. Waxes are widely used in many industries as sealants, coatings, or in colorant formulations.
This industry is characterized by continuous production, where reliability and robustness are the main needs for process equipment. Delta has considerable experience in drum flakers, machines often used in this industry to convert a molten product to a solid form that is suitable for final packaging.
