Throwback Thursday to the Second Exposition of Chemical Industries

Sturtevant was established in 1883 so we have over 134 years’ worth of Throwback Thursday material and are proud to share highlights from our long history. Today, we take you back 101 years ago to 1916 to the second Exposition of Chemical Industries. The first Exposition of Chemical Industries was hosted in New York in 1915 and hosted 83 exhibitors but thSecond Exposition of Chemical Industriesat number quickly grew for the next year’s event.

According to an issue of Science magazine published in June 1920, the second Exposition of Chemical Industries included 188 exhibitors including Sturtevant which, at the time, went by Sturtevant Mill Co. Our display included a ring roll mill, vibrating screen, and a jaw crusher. We still offer jaw crushers today as part of our line of laboratory machines also including grinders and rotary crushers but have made improvements to our designs over the years. Reportedly, 80,000 visitors attended the second Exposition of Chemical Industries to visit Sturtevant, and others, and learn about the industrial chemical industry.

While the Exposition of Chemical Industries is no longer an event, we still believe in showcasing our technology at a range of events including recently appearing at POWTECH 2017 in Nuremberg, Germany where we highlighted our Micronizer jet mills and FCM Mills with interactive programs that allowed attendees to see 360-degree views of the machines both inside and out. Our Events page will let you know all about our upcoming shows whether they are in the United States or abroad where you can have the opportunity to learn about our machines from the experts or learn more about our expansive history in particle reduction and air classification.

If history is a passion of yours, we have even more information available on our company’s history.
