Sepor now offers a complete line of small-scale pilot plants for the extractive industries. Pilot plant testing is an industry accepted, relatively low cost method of confirming and optimizing process plant design parameters that are based on bench scale test results.
For new projects, pilot plants assist in operational viability or “Proof of Concept”. The added benefits are that the plants generate market samples of the final product thus reducing risk. The data and samples can be utilized in the design of a full scale plant; again lowering CAPEX risk.
For established operations, pilot plants can assist in troubleshooting process problems without interrupting production at the main plant, or testing operational changes before implementing in full scale operations.
Pilot Plant testing is the best method to:
- Prove critical components
- Establish viability of new equipment
- Minimize technical, environmental, operational and commercial risk
