Are you looking to boost throughput? Improve product quality? Or discover innovative ways to save space, water, and energy? As the world leader in potash separation, we offer the broadest range of dewatering, brine, and tailings treatment solutions for any type of end product.

More than 90 years of expertise

Starting with our first potash centrifuge, installed in 1926, we have dedicated nearly a century to tailoring the right solutions and services for any capacity, process conditions, or end product.

We have since expanded to a total installed base of more than 600 potash solutions on five continents, in every major potash producing market. Together this amounts to more tonnage produced than all other companies combined.

We apply this collective know-how every day to developing innovative new ways to solve all types of process challenges. Recent examples include a series of eight large-diameter disc filters installed in Belarus, Russia, and South America, as well as a growing base of innovative conical screen bowl decanters for high-quality crystalline products in operation throughout North America and Belarus. Our leading technology range includes screen bowl decanters, pusher centrifuges, filters, thickeners, and fluid bed dryers, making it possible to provide complete systems covering the full process from dewatering to drying.
