Before the construction of large-scale plants, we offer our customers the opportunity to test Pilot Units, or pilot plants, on a small scale for experimental verification of the process.
The pilot plants consist of small-scale units that can replicate in miniature the behaviour of large industrial plants, right at the customer’s premises.
It can be said, therefore, that pilot plants are an intermediate step between the laboratory model and the plant to be built. For this reason, the development of pilot plants allows better testing of the customer’s product in order to project the transition from the laboratory-reality scale, before the machinery is put on the market.
Our use of pilot plants allows us to perform filtration and water treatment tests and oil-water separation directly in the industrial context, at the customer’s premises.
In addition, these systems allow us to study, design and implement the best solution for the customer’s need.
Research and Development is the heart of our work. Having pilot plants available for testing the countless wastewater and process fluids that the industry produces is essential for choosing the best process to be adopted (BAT, or Best Available Technology) and for the correct sizing of our plants and machinery as well as to verify the process performance required by the customer.
In other words, working in a first phase by carrying out tests on pilot plants allows us to create plants and machinery dedicated to the reference application.
