The Chemithon Corporation was established in 1954 by five founding members including a senior engineer from Chevron Chemical Company, all Chemical Engineering graduates of the University of Washington. Today Mr. Burton Brooks, the key original founder, is Chairman of the Board.
The group created Chemithon to commercialize the continuous oleum sulfonation process of alkylbenzene that Mr. Brooks developed when working on his Masters thesis. The first continuous oleum process in 1954 significantly advanced existing technology. Chemithon introduced air/sulfur trioxide sulfonation and the first patented Annular Falling Film Reactor in 1960. Chemithon later developed the Impact Jet Reactor which offers the advantages of versatile operation and ease of maintenance, the Patented Turbo Tube® Reactor for high viscosity fluids, and is currently offering the “fourth generation” design version of the Annular Falling Film Reactor. The alliance partnership with IIT Srl of Italy brings current low pressure Multi-Tube Falling Film Reactor technology to the Chemithon reactor “family”.
