Pilot Plant Trials

We have recently installed a pilot plant test facility to allow test work on systems not currently available in the literature to be carried out. This consists of a 50mm diameter glass column packed with 3.6m of high performance structured packing, reboiler, condenser and associated equipment and pipework. The column is trace heated and lagged to minimise heat losses in the system.

This allows us to conduct trials on distillation, scrubbing and stripping applications for clients where physical data is unavailable, or where there may be contaminants in the stream whose behaviour is unknown.

The system can be configured as required to suit the particular trial application.
