Since 1949, Schold has worked with many companies in the chemicals industry and is a trusted leader in the space. Our high-speed dispersers, low-speed mixers, and inline dispersers are widely used for processing a variety of chemical applications.


Chemicals are essential to many industries and can be found everywhere in our daily lives. Processing methods vary, but the use of precise dispersing and mixing equipment is now standard practice. Whether you choose Schold or another partner, selecting the proper equipment is crucial for:
  • Homogenization: Ensuring chemical components are thoroughly mixed to create a homogeneous mixture, so the final product has consistent quality and performance
  • Reaction: Ensuring chemicals are evenly distributed when initiating a reaction, which is critical for those that require precise reaction rates and conditions
  • Dissolving: Dissolving solids or liquids into a solvent, which is important for insoluble chemicals or solvents that require special mixing equipment to dissolve properly
  • Heat Transfer: Transferring heat energy into or out of the mixture, which is important for exothermic or endothermic reactions that require precise temperature control to proceed effectively
  • Mass Transfer: Facilitating mass transfer, such as during distillation, to ensure the components of the mixture are evenly distributed
