IPCO – Introducing a new name in industrial process solutions

IPCO is a new name in industrial process solutions but a business partner with whom many in the sulphur industry will already be familiar.
Previously operating as Sandvik Process Systems, best known for its Rotoform granulation process, IPCO is now an independent company within the Swedish Wallenberg group and has 600 employees, more than 35 sales and service offices and annual sales in excess of €200 million. In joining the Wallenberg group, IPCO has gained the stability of being part of a business with approx. 600 000 employees and more than €140 billion in total annual sales of holdings.
We continue to develop customized solutions to enable customer success in sulphur solidification and handling plants having delivered complete end-to-end systems from receipt of molten sulphur to transport loading of solid material to hundreds of companies around the globe since 1951.
We have an in-depth understanding of the customer’s specific processes, materials and needs. Today, IPCO translates those insights into advanced process solutions and equipment for sulphur degassing, molten truck and rail car loading, block pouring, remelting, a full range of sulphur solidification, downstream storage and reclamation, as well as bulk loading for truck, rail and ships.
In terms of solidification, IPCO provides systems to meet all throughput requirements.

The well-known Rotoform, designed for small to mid-size capacity requirements, offers unrivalled product uniformity and environmentally friendly operation. IPCO’s Rotoform remains the most widely used process for the production of premium quality pastilles internationally.

Where higher capacity is required, the company’s drum granulation systems are fully automated, once through, sulphur granulation processes based on rotating drum technology. The revolutionary method of forming the seeds externally from the drum allows for higher operational availability and tighter control of the particle size distribution. With variable throughput rates, up to 90 mtph, this is the highest capacity granulation unit available in the market.

IPCO has supplied more than 700 sulphur forming units around the world and has offices in over 130 countries for efficient customer support.

We strive to be the leading global industrial process partner in sulphur processing and handling. Through our know-how, total offering and service commitment, we anticipate and take care of customer needs long term.
As a partner we aim to make an impact by delivering the most reliable, high-quality industrial process solutions with unmatched productivity gains. We shape the marketplace by continuously bringing new solutions and perspectives to our customers.
