One of these projects deals with the production of melamine polyphosphate. An entrepreneur approached us with the problem. To solve it, we concluded a contract with our research partner, the Chemical Center at TSU, and within 6−7 months, the scientists developed a technique to synthesize the product and produced a sample. The obtained data were further sent for industrial testing which was successfully passed. At the final stage, technical specifications were drawn up.
The ECTC engineers, having studied the process of synthesis, selected the equipment required for running this process at our pilot production site; completed three test runs in a 50-liter glass reactor during about ten days; checked the product quality and behavior and, upon positive approval, bypassing the 1 m3 reactor stage, moved straight to the syntheses in the 5 m3 reactor. The product, by the way, required a separate stage of the heat treatment. To date, all tests are practically completed and the customer signed a shipment agreement for over three tons of the product a month.
