Dr. Paul Lohmann’s Commitment to Quality

Our years of experience as forerunners in metal salts manufacturing have enabled us to create a highly controlled and sophisticated process. The constant high purity of our metal salts helps guarantee a specific chemical behavior and reliability, regardless of how many batches we manufacture. This allows us to adapt and alter the properties of the specialized mineral salts to support the intended purpose, thus allowing us to provide our clients with controlled, high-quality products with batch-to-batch consistency. To help control and guarantee the quality, we created and continue to follow a seven-step manufacturing process:

  • Incoming Goods – We use only trusted and qualified suppliers for our starting materials.
  • Initial Reactions – For us, the water quality used is a crucial contributor to the purity of the final product.
  • Crystallization – Solid formation by precipitation from water solution. This step is repeated throughout the entire process to ensure the highest quality.
  • Purification – Various purification steps are utilized during the manufacturing process. Our goal is to improve the product quality further.
  • Evaporating & Drying – Our process uses approximately 15 different drying methods.
  • Finishing – Exact steps are followed to ensure consistent, high-quality materials.
  • Outgoing Goods – We conduct several control parameters tests before we send the product to our clients. All of this is to assure our clients that their product is covered and supported.
