Chemicals Purification


Chemical Purification

In the chemical industry, the final product quality is often the driving force, but the purification of intermediates is also important. Jacobi has extensive experience and offers a range of solutions in the treatment of liquid chemicals. Impurities, colours or inhibitors need to be removed from the chemical products.

Chemical processes where Jacobi’s solutions are used are:

  • Crystallisation yield improvement
  • Heat stability improvement
  • Intermediate product purification
  • Ionic impurities removal
  • Purification and decolourisation of final product
  • Purification of off spec product

Jacobi Services offers customised packages with immediate availability to meet all these purification challenges. On top of this, we have developed a collection of top-of-the-range adsorption products that maximise performance and keep costs to a minimum.


  • Mobile filters are a proven technology
  • Custom reactivation or take back and supply of virgin carbon is possible
  • Mobile filters for temporary use in case of emergency.
  • Clean solution, operators do not come into contact with the activated carbon
  • Onsite representative pilot testing
Biodiesel Purification Solutions

Biodiesel Treatment

Biodiesel is a type of biofuel mainly made from vegetable oil, such as rapeseed, by a transesterification reaction of the triglyceride. This a process that converts fats and oils into biodiesel and glycerine (a coproduct). Both products are separated based on their density difference (glycerine density = 1.22, biodiesel density = 0.88). Both the crude glycerine and biodiesel can contain undesirable impurities that are picked up during transport and must be removed prior to final use.

Glycerine Purification

Glycerine Purification

Glycerine is a colourless, odourless, viscous liquid that tastes sweet and is non-toxic. It is produced on an industrial scale during soap manufacturing by saponification or in biodiesel production by a transesterification reaction. Jacobi Services solutions are used during refinement and bleaching of crude glycerine.
