Process Scale-up

We are specialists in process scale-up. Our proven methods deliver pilot plants with true ROI, proving your technology will work in commercial manufacturing equipment at production scale.

Process scale-up especially plays into the following areas:

  1. Non-linear factor scale-up
  2. 3D modeling and process simulation
  3. Materials of construction and equipment selection
  4. Commissioning at production rates
  5. Process Safety
