Flexible, State-of-the-Art Pilot Plant Facility
With more than 5,000 square feet of floor space and 32 feet of headroom, our facility is well-equipped to facilitate both bench- and pilot-scale tests. Our ability to modify column internals and auxiliary equipment gives us the flexibility to test different configurations and quickly arrive at an optimum solution. Our in-house analytical department supports all pilot tests, providing customers with on-the-spot feedback to significantly reduce time spent in the pilot plant.
Pilot tests are performed over a range of operating conditions to measure mass transfer efficiency and determine optimum conditions. Sufficient data for scale-up is routinely generated within one week of testing for each process step. With years of experience, Koch Modular has developed proven correlations that provide accurate scale-up from pilot to commercialization.
Access to Full-Scale Separation Equipment
The final product of the pilot plant test is a test report that guides Koch Modular on designing and supplying the complete commercial-scale separation equipment. With the pilot testing completed and the scale-up factors determined, Koch Modular can provide mass transfer separation equipment such as a Distillation Modular System or a Liquid-Liquid Extraction Column with a Process Performance Guarantee.
