Client Testimonial

“We were impressed with the professionalism and dedication of EPIC Systems’ entire organization, from the shop floor to their management team.  This was especially important to us as this pilot plant project was a first-of-its-kind for Akermin. I would return to EPIC for future projects and I recommend their project management expertise to other organizations requiring a turnkey pilot plant manufacturer for design, fabrication, and commissioning.” – Bob Martinelli, Director, Engineering Operations at Akermin, Inc.  

Featured Case Study | Pilot Plant Manufacturer

Polymer Pilot Plant Opens Path to New Technologies 

This pilot plant is a flexible system that tests new scientific formulations for bio-polymer additives. Bio-polymer formulations are created using a two-phase, steam injected reaction process. This pilot plant allows new formulations to be produced in significant amounts three times faster than before and creates the opportunity for on-going refinement. This process is currently running as a successful demonstration plant at Iowa State University, helping develop new bio-polymer technologies.

Key Features: Batch reaction, steam injection and stripping, solvent recovery, portable modular units, turnkey pilot plant design, construction and operation.
