Pilot Plant

The Delmar pilot plant occupies an area of approximately 235 m2. Half of the area contains a mezzanine of steel grating where our seven vessels are installed, which allows access from both floor and mezzanine levels. The pilot plant vessels are equipped for nitrogen inerting on-line and are serviced with steam (140°C), hot water and methanol/water cooling (-30°C). Hot oil heating or liquid nitrogen cooling is also available. A separate room connected to the pilot plant has its own air control and houses a vacuum tray dryer.
