Fluitec launched its first static mixers in the market back. Today, Fluitec is a reliable partner for high quality products whose know-how spans a wide range of mixing, heat transfer and reaction tasks in the chemical, petrochemical, pharma-ceutical, environment and food industries. Apparatus weighing up to 3’500 kg is manufactured in our in-house workshop. Larger apparatus is built under our supervision by a partner firm located close by. The Fluitec mixer / heat exchanger was invented in 2000, marking the company’s entry into the mixing and reaction technology segment. From there, it was only a small step to first complete and successfully commissioned in-line reaction system based on the Fluitec mixer / heat exchanger.

- Year Founded:
Fluitec was founded by Alain Georg as a sole proprietorship in 1993; a new static mixer geometry – the CSE – was launched in the market just one year later. Georg’s innovative static mixer won him a young entrepreneur award: the prize money paid the rent for a workshop and production facility in Winterthur and also enabled him to take on his first staff and turn Fluitec into a public limited company.
During the next few years, Fluitec gained a foothold in various branches of industry with the development of several new mixer geometries, liquid gasification solutions and advances in the area of DeNOx systems.
By 2002, the original building had become too cramped and so the firm relocated to Neftenbach. Parallel to numerous smaller projects, Fluitec’s engineers and technicians spent much of their time researching into scalable CSE-X reactors. Fluitec continued to grow steadily and within seven years was bursting at the seams; the move into new premises with a large workshop and experimental laboratory in 2009 was a logical decision.
The company had barely settled in when the new Fluitec Contiplant system revolutionised reaction technology.
Through ongoing research and development work, Fluitec is constantly striving to design new solutions tailored to users’ practical needs.
These activities take place concurrently with the development of theoretical calculation methods and Fluitec’s leadership role when it comes to static mixer design is widely acknowledged. Over the last few years, Fluitec has intensified its efforts to optimise mixer structures, achieve new breakthroughs in mixer / heat exchanger technology and, in particular, build novel solutions for in-line reactions. Fluitec currently employs 18 staff.
