The most important component to successful commercialization of a product involves the transfer of laboratory scale technologies to the next stage: pilot scale-up. At this stage, scalable equipment and processing conditions are identified in order to optimally predict large-scale manufacturing results once commercial quantities of product are needed.

 

The parameters that are studied during pilot scale-up include: 

  •           Proper materials of construction for requisite equipment. 

  •           Temperature and Pressure profiles.

  •           Appropriate chemical product selection considering both cost and regulatory concerns. 

  •           Study of residence times for critical reaction steps. 

  •           Necessary transfer techniques for the addition of reagents. 

  •           Determination of product throughputs and reaction yields. 

 

Our pilot facilities possess equipment to perform the various reactions:

 

  • Distillation

  • Vacuum Distillation

  • Fractional Distillation

  • Evaporation
