Contract manufacturing with Ursa-Chemie – this is how we work:

As soon as we receive your request, we check the feasibility according to your specifications and sign a non-disclosure agreement. You provide us with all product-specific data, such as the exact formula, manufacturing instructions, packaging and labelling information, safety data sheets, product specifications and required quantities – we start initial laboratory tests and develop the production process. All this usually takes no longer than 4 to 6 weeks and is free of charge to you. Once the production process has been developed, you will receive our offer. Following an initial test production, which will involve you if necessary, batch or campaign production begins. From this point on, you can order the manufacture of your product from Ursa-Chemie GmbH at any time.

Our production facilities

In-depth expertise, high flexibility, first-class production facilities … Ursa-Chemie is perfectly equipped to support you with the exclusive, high-quality, safe production of a wide variety of product types and to develop exactly the right solution for your needs. Whether mixed, reaction or powder products – our universally equipped production facilities enable safe, high-quality contract manufacturing of chemical products for different needs and batch sizes. Processing under explosion protection and nitrogen atmosphere is possible in addition to production under GMP conditions. To ensure that the quality of our products is consistent, we use an individually adapted process control system.

Stainless steel vessel

Stainless steel vessels are used to make sophisticated mixed products. The mixing and reaction vessels have a capacity of 500 to 8,000 litres, so a variety of batch sizes can be realised. Various stirrers are available to enable the manufacture of products with a viscosity of up to 60,000 mPas.

Temperature-controlled vessels enable processing to take place at temperatures of up to 180 °C and under vacuum of max. 30 mbar. Special explosion protection devices enable approved processing of products under explosion protection (explosion protection zone 0). Production under a nitrogen atmosphere is also possible. Under these conditions, toxic, corrosive, inflammable and explosive or dust-explosive hazardous substances can also be processed and produced.

GMP vessel

The GMP vessels are used for the production of sophisticated mixed products under GMP conditions (cosmetic GMP). Here, we manufacture products with high purity requirements. They include, for example, hygiene products or active ingredients for the cosmetics industry or agriculture, ecological preservatives and disinfectants.

The stainless steel stirrer tanks have a capacity of up to 10,000 litres. Various stirrers are available for manufacturing products with a viscosity of up to 30,000 mPas. Powerful dispersants and emulsifiers allow the production of stable oil-in-water emulsions. Low-viscosity products with high foaming capacity can be formulated foam-free in a special vessel with a jet stream mixer.

Solid materials plants

Our solids plants are used for the production of powder products. We cover the entire production chain from crystallisation, separation, drying, mixing and grinding. Processing under explosion protection (explosion protection zone 21) is also possible.

We use crystallisation vessels with a volume of up to 8,000 litres, an explosion-protected centrifuge for phase separation of the suspension and a vacuum mixing dryer for gentle drying of the filter cake. Different grinders are available for final processing of the powder.

Enamel vessel

Enamel kettles are used for special chemical reactions if stainless steel cannot be used. The vessels offer a capacity of up to 5,400 litres, which allows a wide range of batch sizes to be realised.

They are equipped with a two-stage multi-flex stirrer and dosing devices for liquids and solids. An in-process pH measurement can also be taken.

Temperature-controlled mixing vessels enable processing to take place at temperatures of up to 150 °C and under vacuum pressure of max. 30 mbar. The production plant is equipped with special explosion protection devices and is approved for processing products under explosion protection (explosion protection zone 1). This enables the processing of toxic, corrosive, inflammable and explosive or dust-explosive hazardous substances.

An electronic control and monitoring system enables us to carry out demanding chemical reactions safely and risk-free. We specialise particularly in the processing of chromic acid and epichlorohydrin in a closed system.

The contact partner for your chemical product

We have separate production areas – GMP production and technical production – for manufacturing sophisticated mixed products, reaction products and powder mixtures under both GMP conditions and explosion protection.

In the area of mixed products, we produce liquids such as solutions, emulsions, dispersions and suspensions as well as solids, for example, by separating and processing solids from suspensions, by drying moist solids or by decanting. A wide range of products can be processed thanks to temperature-controlled mixing vessels made of various materials, including stainless steel, enamel and plastic, as well as various types of stirrer and an inline disperser with powder suction. An inline pH measurement can also be taken and mirrored dosing can be implemented.

With reaction products, reactions are possible under pressure of up to 6 bar as well as under vacuum at process temperatures of up to 190 °C. Simple distillation or production under a nitrogen atmosphere is also possible. The plants can process a variety of products. For example, neutralisation and polymerisation of solutions (not solids), such as epichlorohydrin conversions, or solid-liquid separation by centrifuge are possible.

A wide range of products can be processed thanks to temperature-controlled mixing vessels made of various materials, including stainless steel, enamel and plastic, as well as various types of stirrer. For example, neutralisation and polymerisation of solutions (not solids), such as epichlorohydrin conversions, or solid-liquid separation by centrifuge are possible.

Our powder mixing systems, including vacuum mixing dryers, powder mixers and powder mills, are approved for processing powder products under explosion protection (explosion protection zone 21) and enable the production of high-quality end products in various batch sizes.

Substitutions with redox reactions and complex reactions can also be implemented.

Production process

Do you want to have a chemical product made to your own formula? We can assist you with our in-depth expertise.

You develop the formula – when it comes to exclusive, safe and high-quality manufacturing, that’s where we come in. We use your formula and manufacturing instructions to develop an efficient production process or to optimise existing processes, and to transfer your formula and processes from laboratory scale to a large-scale plant.

This ensures that your formula matches perfectly to our plants. All production steps are partially automated and logged in an individually adapted process control system (PCS). Before going into production, the raw materials are scanned and the batch and quantity are fully documented. This ensures the traceability of all batches at all times. This guarantees you uncompromising quality and high-quality products.

Our quality management according to DIN EN ISO 9001 reflects the high quality standard of our company. After your product is manufactured to your formula, it is filled into canisters, barrels and IBC tanks. This process step is also partially automated, including precise filling and weighing. Your finished filled product is then delivered to you or straight to your customers at home or abroad.

Permits

Do you need a chemical product made to your own formula and does your product need to take laws on hazardous substances into account? Or are you unable to manufacture a product yourself because you lack the necessary permits?

We have a wide-ranging permit base in accordance with the Federal Immission Control Act (BImSchG) and are therefore allowed to process a wide range of chemical substances. Storage and production conditions have been designed to meet the requirements of environmental protection and occupational safety when processing toxic, corrosive, environmentally hazardous or inflammable substances.

We carry out risk assessments and risk evaluations for every product you enquire about. For reaction products in particular, we check the suitability of our systems for your product. Once we have carried out substance-specific hazard assessments, we use our expertise to define the manufacturing conditions. In every respect, you can be assured that we will manufacture your products safely.

In the GMP production area, we manufacture sophisticated hygiene products under GMP conditions (cosmetic GMP). We can manufacture products for the cosmetics industry, agriculture, food supply chain and all other product groups that have high purity requirements. We are, of course, familiar with the legal requirements for these product groups and apply them consistently.

Sustainable compliance with legal requirements, regulations and regulatory standards and norms is an absolute priority for us, and is a benefit to you too!

Infrastructure

Our chemically optimised infrastructure allows us to manufacture and deliver your chemical product exactly to your specifications and wishes.

We offer excellent storage conditions for raw materials and finished products, various storage tanks and heat chambers, handling of road tankers, state-of-the-art production vessels and innovative safety concepts for the manufacture of your products.

In our state-of-the-art quality laboratory, we carry out cross-process analytical controls of raw materials and end products as well as in-process sampling 

Every step of production is controlled, monitored and logged by a partially automated, IT-supported process control system. Complete manufacturing documentation for your products provides you with legal certainty and security against any complaints.

We store your products  safely in our logistics centre until they are dispatched and delivered to you or your customers in accordance with the applicable regulations. Our location right in the middle of Germany and Europe, directly on the A3 motorway, guarantees short transport routes.
