Smarter Industrial and Chemical Processing

Manufacturers everywhere count on Parker’s broad experience for monitoring systems and depend on its air, gas and fluid handling solutions to ensure safety and quality in industrial and chemical processing environments.

Solving Processing Challenges

Aggressive materials, extreme temperatures and pressures and hazardous byproducts are challenges typical of chemical, rubber and plastics processing, metal refining and water treatment. Parker serves customers worldwide with air, gas and liquid filtration, generation and conveyance solutions, instrumentation offerings and remote condition monitoring and preventive maintenance systems that enhance plant safety and product quality, minimize downtime and enable compliance with regulations.

Markets Served

CHEMICAL PROCESSING: Chemical processing's volatile substances and demanding conditions make dependability and safety critical priorities, which Parker addresses with solutions ranging from non-corrosive instrumentation and tubing to high-reliability sealants and sensor-based predictive maintenance systems.
METAL REFINING: Metal refining processes such as dry metal grinding, polishing and abrasive blasting release contaminants ranging from damaging dust, grit and powder to hazardous metal oxide mists and volatile metallic fumes. Parker draws on its commercial and industrial filtration expertise to offer an unmatched array of solutions for controlling airborne metalworking byproducts and minimizing their adverse effects on plant safety, worker health, equipment life and product quality.
RUBBER & PLASTICS PROCESSING: Injection molding, compression molding, blow molding, extrusion and other aspects of rubber and plastics processing create mist, fumes, smoke and dust that can lead to defective products and pose combustion hazards that compromise workplace safety. Parker’s purification and separation filtration technologies address these risks, offering manufacturers compressed air and gas purity that exceeds industry standards.
WATER TREATMENT: Consumers demand clean water for health and safety, while manufacturers and energy producers require conditioned water for increased efficiency and reduced environmental impact. Parker helps meet customer water-assessment and treatment needs with solutions such as potable water pumps, sealants and THM analyzers; water chillers for production applications and reverse osmosis; and electro-deionization systems for use in power generation.
