Robinson Brothers has been involved in Carbon disulfide chemistry since producing accelerators for the rubber market in the 1930's.

Today, Carbon disulfide is used as a versatile reagent for the manufacture of thiazoles, xanthates, thiocarbamates and thiuram disulfides for use in such diverse applications as pharmaceutical, veterinary, photographic, effluent treatment and rubber chemical.

Carbon disulfide chemistries are carried out in our 4,500 litre dedicated vessel, operating on a flexible scale from kilograms to multi-tonnes. Whilst the Carbon disulfide is available from bulk tank supplies, our largest dedicated Carbon disulfide systems consists of 18,000 litre vessels. All reactions are handled under the highest environmental control using dedicated feedlines and scrubber systems.

Our Pilot Plant facility allows us to handle material under the tightest control standards to ensure safety. Robinson Brothers has invested heavily in a fully-equipped Process Hazard Screening Laboratory operated by our Process Safety Manager. All aspects of a reaction process is rigorously screened for any hazards and process safety prior to making first scale up in Kilo-Laboratory and/or Pilot Plant. Where necessary processes are reverse engineered to remove and mitigate any identified process hazards prior to first operations.
