Dr. Fritz Raschig
Our roots extend to 1891, when Dr. Fritz Raschig (1863-1928) founded Raschig GmbH. Dr. Raschig invented the raschig ring mass transfer tower packing. This packing allowed for greatly improved process efficiencies in his plant.
Dr. Raschig specialized in phenol chemistry and patented a number of chemical production processes in his career.
Interestingly, Dr. Raschig earned his doctorate in chemistry under the supervision of Dr. Robert Bunsen. Dr. Bunsen is famous for the ‘bunsen burner’ he invented. Dr. Bunsen also was the first chemist to identify the elements Cesium (Cs, Atomic Number 55) and Rubidium (Rb, Atomic Number 37).
Today, Raschig USA is part of a global team that specializes in mass transfer, chemical separations, and wastewater treatment filters (media, packing, trays, fill). The USA headquarters is located in Arlington, Texas, in the mid-cities area of the Dallas / Fort Worth megalopolis. Production facilities are located in Texas, Kansas, Germany, Mexico, and India. Our partner firm is located in Ludwigshafen am Rhein, Germany – at the same site that Dr. Raschig built his chemical plant over 100 years ago.
Raschig USA, Inc. is a member of PMC Global Incorporated, headquartered in Sun Valley, California.
