Pilot Facilities

Highly automated, robust data collection capabilities

Full-time staff of engineers and technicians

Great collaboration tool for innovation

Designed for quick scale up to commercial processes

Igniting Innovation

The Pilot Plant is an integral part of our Product Development activities.  After initial bench top experiments, we use the Pilot facilities to test and scale-up new products prior to full production plant trials.  This also allows our clients to observe and participate in the co-development of new products.

The Pilot Plant consists of two operations:

  1. Multi-stage, Fixed bed catalyst system
  2. 80 L Reactor and Receiver unit with wiped film evaporator or batch distillation capabilities

Some typical projects we support are:

Evaluate new production techniques and different conditions to see how these changes affect final product performance

Evaluate new homogeneous and heterogeneous catalyst programs to change the chemical structure of our products

Establish the optimum manufacturing parameters for new chemistries

Manufacture larger sample sizes for more extensive end-use testing by our clients.

Evaluate potential new raw materials
