Business Profile


DrM was founded by Dr. Hans Mueller (1913-1984), an engineering school graduate from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ). It is the legacy of this brilliant industrial entrepreneur and creative inventor and whose influence lives on in the chemical process industry. His boundless imagination found expression in more than four hundred inventions for which patents were issued throughout his academic and industrial career. Several of these revolutionized chemical processes in numerous countries.

Today, DrM is still held privately and managed by highly trained technical and creative professionals. It is our primary objective to find and develop solid-liquid separation solutions which help us live in a cleaner environment while at the same time create significant financial benefit for our clients. The fully enclosed system design, automation, as well as the washing and drying operations of our filtration systems have had considerable influence in the achievement of these goals.

DrM maintains subsidiaries in the USA, Poland, China, India, Malaysia and Dubai (UAE). It is represented globally by sales agencies, licensees, representatives and its own sales offices. Please see the Contacts section for additional details. Applications and uses of the FUNDABAC® and CONTIBAC® candle filters are widespread throughout the processing industries. The same can be said for FUNDAMIX® Vibromixers in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. All DrM filters and mixers are custom made to specifically suit the underlying process. Solutions are often developed on an individual basis. DrM’s Quality System is ISO 9001 certified for the design and manufacture of plants.

We offer stand-alone candle filters as well as fully automated skidded turnkey systems.

Every solid-liquid separation application is unique. DrM’s comprehension of all of the applications begins with a discussion with the client and is followed by a request that the client complete an application questionnaire to the best of its ability. Following a review of the information submitted by the client, DrM application specialists may suggest that on-site testing and/or piloting be carried out. This hands-on work ultimately gives both DrM and its clients the confidence that the process is scalable. It also puts DrM in a position to submit a technical/commercial proposal that it will stand behind. Please complete our Application Questionnaire to receive a detailed quotation.
