We want you to know mass transfer

By sharing our knowledge, we intend to increase awareness at our customers and employees. We aim to share as much knowledge about mass transfer as possible, in order to give our customers and employees a solid technical base to enhance the performance of or to recognize problems with columns.

We realize this in two ways. First of all, we share our knowledge by publishing videos from our production and equipment testing. Through this we hope to show you, at least a glimpse, that production of mass transfer equipment can still be performed in Europe and of course that MTE is capable to produce most of the equipment commonly used in today’s industry and applications.

Second, we offer study days and training.


Theory and practise

MTE offers study days where we combine theoretical and practical issues on column operations. We share our knowledge about how to solve column failures, how to choose the right equipment and how to recognize column problems. 
These study days are designed for engineers, employees involved in turnarounds, maintenance managers and purchasers.

Study days on location

After this training you will have a better understanding about the principles of packed and trayed columns. Also you will be better prepared on possible problems which could occur during the exchange of packing and internals.

Twice a year MTE organizes a study day on a location based in Rotterdam & Antwerp. 
Because of the need of knowledge at our customers, we have been asked to organize these days also in the UK & Spain.


Training facility

Besides our employees, we use our training facility, on request, to educate our customers.
Our training course is a combination of theory and practice. The practical part will be in our production facility in Staphorst, where we have two pilot plants.

Training courses

We offer three types of standard training:

We offer three types of standard trainings:

  • Mechanic: minimum requirement: VCA certificate
In this training the focus will be on mass transfer equipment, evacuation and the principles of mass transfer.
  • Lead mechanic: minimum requirement: VCA Vol certificate
    In addition to the standard program, you will be trained for evacuation leader.
  • Supervisor: minimum requirement: VCA Vol certificate

    In addition to the first two programs, you will learn more about work preparation regarding columns. Also BHV will be an important part of this program.

All our participants will be certified with an MTE certificate if all subjects of the training will be successfully completed and tested by our supervisor & trainer.

We also offer tailor made training programs for our customers. We often receive requests of our customers for a special training on specific subjects.

We organize customized training at your location for engineering departments, turnaround teams, maintenance departments, installation teams and purchasers.
