The cost of developing a new product that requires powder processing, grinding, flash drying, blending or particle classifying in-house can put new product development out of reach for many small to mid-sized companies. Fluid Energy is now offering a lab to pilot program designed to service the R&D needs of those in the pharmaceutical, hazardous materials, and food processing
industries. The service will allow those companies to develop new product without the capital expenditures of bringing in specialized jet milling, drying, and classifying equipment.
Our laboratory is built to provide clients with small batch powder processing services for research and development and make for an easy transition to pilot scale and production scale processing.
The cost of setting up a product testing and research powder processing lab can be a limiting factor in the development of new products for most small and mid-size manufacturers. Building a controlled clean room environment fitted-out with jet milling and powder processing equipment simply is not in the budget for many companies.
Services now being offered under Fluid Energy’s new lab to pilot program include basic grinding and mixing, blending, coating, milling, and packaging. The lab offers clients the ability to test products with batches as small as 1 gram of material and scale it up to pilot scale, usually between 50-5,000 pounds. Following the pilot scale processing, Fluid Energy’s production facility offers production scale services for larger batches of up to one million pounds.
The costs associated with R&D and processing in-house can prevent clients from developing a product. Through our lab to pilot services, we are able to bring the customer’s ideas to reality at a fraction the cost of doing it in-house, and we are able to deliver it in a much shorter time frame than many of our customers anticipate.
Fluid Energy’s experienced R&D staff is now available discuss lab to pilot processing needs with potential clients. For additional information on Fluid Energy’s lab to pilot program, please call 215-721-8990 or email Fluid Energy.
