Pilot Plant Fabrication

When a standard unit just won’t do, Chemtech offers a full range of engineering capabilities and expert pilot plant equipment. 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. As leading pilot plant manufacturers, we know what it takes to produce and design the highest quality and most efficient systems in the business.

About Pilot Plant Fabrication

A pilot plant is a small-scale version of the production plant that a company uses to test and validate a new process or product. Pilot plants are used to generate data about the commercial viability of a proposed process or product before large-scale production begins. Pilot plant manufacturers usually have designs, operating procedures, and equipment that are similar to those of the full-scale production facility. At Chemtech, we offer complete customization of your pilot plant equipment so you get exactly what you need to collect imperative data before going full scale.

Chemtech Custom Pilot Plant Equipment

All Chemtech distillation systems are modular in design and offer maximum flexibility when choosing the right systems for your unique application. Standard systems are available for laboratory applications such as the Mini-4, Mini-5, and KDL-6 models. Scaled-up versions in stainless steel are also available. Some of the more common components and system customizations we offer are:

  • Evaporator systems

We Can Growing With You

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

We design and scale your pilot plant equipment according to the stage you are at, and the capabilities you are growing towards.

Why Choose CTS Pilot Plant Fabrication?

Experience and expertise. When it comes to something as crucial as the success of your final product, you want to make sure that it is in the hands of experts. This is where experience and expertise come into play. We know what works and what doesn’t, and are able to apply this knowledge to your pilot plant system.  

Cost-Effectiveness. It can be costly to fabricate a pilot plant in-house, especially if your company does not have the necessary equipment or personnel. Commissioning a fabrication company such as Chemtech, can save you time and money in the long run. It can also allow you to learn which systems are best for you, and how to properly use them in case you decide to purchase your own pilot plant equipment.

Timely Completion. Time is money, and this is particularly true in business. If you need your pilot plant up and running quickly, it’s best to leave it in the hands of professionals who can get the job done efficiently, consistently and on schedule. Chemtech has the capacity to get your facility up and running with the training you need, so you can hit the market sooner.
