Gather: From laboratory to production via pilot plant

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017 von admin

A process generally undergoes initial development within a laboratory and is then made production ready in pilot or mini plants. During this scale-up, a range of different problems can emerge, e.g., in the way temperatures behave. In a laboratory, a process may be endothermic but becomes exothermic in production. How pumps behave in relation to peripheral equipment can change under full-scale production conditions, Sven Borghoff describes a coordinated pump and drive concept which makes scaling up easier.

Dosing pumps with multifunctional extensions for different pump types often used in laboratories generally have no particularly high temperature or pumping ranges. However, when scaling up, these aspects take on major significance. Gather uses its magnetic-driven pumps (Fig. 1) here. They are available in such a broad range that when scaling up from the laboratory to production via a mini or pilot plant, the pumping and control technology can be retained. The company cooperates with the chemical industry, institutes and universities to make process development from initial laboratory trials through to production easier.
