Not only is a pilot plant an important first step for hazard identification before full-scale production takes place, but it also plays a major role in detecting undesirable contaminants. In chemical processes recycled solutions, electrolytes and inorganics must be studied and analyzed to detect the accumulation of these so called contaminants in the final product. With this type of operation, the inclusion of a pilot plant test program during this study phase is of crucial importance.
Pilot plant testing allows customers to verify the feasibility of the proposed separation procedures along with incorporating new ideas into a current process. Artisan’s pilot testing procedures are used to verify and deepen the results from the laboratory tests under real production conditions. With the results of these tests the achievable throughput, product quality and yield can be defined and guaranteed for on-going full scale processing. Artisan’s innovative separation solutions, along with new developments, can be optimized to supply customers with the best and most cost effective solution for their separation problem.
Artisan Industries offers a fully operational Pilot Plant Testing facility that demonstrates how its technologies can simplify your operations by eliminating processing steps. Our pilot plant testing for industrial process systems provides customers with unique and valuable insights. This could allow you to reduce your operating costs associated with multiple unit operations and improve the yield and purity of your product.
To produce your finished product, our engineers will perform reactions, both batch and continuous, and concurrently test the appropriate post-reaction unit operations. Our Pilot Plant also accommodates additional upstream or downstream unit operations.
Along with test data, our pilot plants provide small production batches for analysis, test markets or specialty markets. During testing, a pilot plant project can serve as a small-scale training facility for your plant operators and supervisors.
