A pilot unit is designed to mimic a full scale plant using similar components and process conditions. Costs are minimized to generate a pilot by using replaceable equipment and refurbished assets. Typically made of PVC to minimize cost of piping.
We design pilot units on different scales like this HiPOx system on Long Island, New York.
Pilot Unit Performance Objectives
Pilot unit is designed to allow the customer to
Determine the design conditions for scale up with a high degree of confidence
Mitigate risk (bromate control, new emerging applications)
Proof of performance to customer
Pilot allows maximum flexibility to measure and test customer’s water under the performance of Advanced Oxidation
