Pilot Plant Modular Systems

All Chemtech systems are modular in design and so offer maximum flexibility when choosing the right evaporator, degasser, feed & discharge systems, heating and cooling systems, vacuum pump systems, control systems, and matching heat transfer systems for your unique application. Scaled up versions in stainless steel are also available offering true pilot plant capabilities, our KD10, KD30, Kd75 systems can generate throughputs up to 75 kg per hour at temperatures up to 350C and pressures as low as 0.001 mbar.

As needs change, select from a variety of upgrade packages to increase the size of your evaporator, go from a medium to high vacuum system, or add additional stages to your separation.

When a standard unit just won't do, Chemtech offers a full range of engineering capabilities. Our engineers and technicians have the know-how and experience to assist with everything from the customization of smaller lab units to the completion of large scale production plants.
