Raschig USA, Inc.
Dr. Fritz Raschig (1863-1928) founder of Raschig Gmbh in 1891. 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). He would be remembered as a Nobel Prize winner except for the fact that his career came before the Nobel prize was first awarded.
Today Raschig-USA is part of a global team that specializes in mass transfer, chemical separations and cooling tower internals (media, packing, trays, fill, drift eliminators). 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.
And when in Ludwigshafen, if you love cats, visit the Cat Museum.
