Pilot plant
"The larger the pilot plant,
the lower the scale-up risk”
To reduce technical risks for our customers and for ourselves, Koch-Glitsch and Koch Heat Transfer have constructed commercial scale demonstration units in Wichita, KS, USA.
The units are industrial scale but are instrumented like laboratory units.
The tower (shown above) is being used to demonstrate the performance of a wide range of equipment:
  • One-pass and 2-pass trays
  • High capacity tray devices
  • Random packing
  • Structured packing
  • Grid
  • Liquid and vapor distribution devices
  • Mist elimination devices
