Pilot Plants for wiped film distillation and short path distillation

Main target is to generate scalable data and results during the pilot tests (with small sample quantities) to enable a later scale up to industrial systems. Furthermore these pilot systems can be used for distillation or drying of small product quantities.

Experience, gained by experiments with a variety of products in our own pilot plants, has influenced the design and continuously improves the quality and performance of the systems.

Pilot plants are used for:

    • Generating the scalable data for industrial systems
    • Producing certain sample quantities
    • Optimization of existing processes

    Technical features

      • Plant sizes for feed rates of 5 kg/h up to 50 kg/h
      • Evaporator sizes 0.06 m² up to 0.5 m²
      • Heating of evaporator jacket up to 350 °C (hot oil)
      • For temperatures > 350 °C inductive heating possible
      • Achievable pressure down to 0.001 mbar (short path evaporator)
      • Achievable pressure down to 0.1 mbar (wiped film evaporator)
      • Small product hold up in pipes and vessels
      • MOC stainless steel and special materials
