Innovations that benefit your product do not just come overnight. For that reason, at Bodec testing is a continuous process that can be found in many of our projects. By testing at pilot plant scale, we can actually test innovative technologies or concepts and prove them to you.
In the past, testing has often led to results and insights that proved to be invaluable. We test at various scales and testing is indispensable in process design and scale-up studies. Often, this involves testing at laboratory and pilot plant scales. In optimisation projects we also carry out tests at production/plant scale.
Tests at laboratory scale
Often the industry is sceptical about the application of new technologies. We carry out the necessary preliminary studies to find out what changes we can expect in certain innovations. For this we use our own laboratory facilities or those of our clients or technology partners. The choice of test location depends on the execution of the project, the availability of raw materials and the presence of technology.
Tests at pilot-plant scale
Bodec has built a pilot plant and test production plant, a considerable investment in the future. The pilot plant is used for process development and development of new technologies. Through testing at pilot-plant scale we can actually test innovative technologies or concepts and prove their feasibility to you. With the results our engineers can give information on the possibilities of scale-up, the right equipment design/construction/model and the progress of the process. In the test production plant we can do small-scale productions and find valuable uses for residual streams from processes.
