Pilot scale operations

CanmetENERGY Devon houses a range of pilot plants to test various processes and conditions for both batch and continuous operation.

Our areas of focus

Our pilot plants include autoclaves of various sizes, hydroprocessing units capable of high temperatures and pressure, batch and continuous distillation, and specific process operations such as solvent deasphalting and froth treatment. Many of our pilot plants are multi-purpose and can be configured in to different process operations. Others can be modified to meet a client’s specific needs. Our staff are highly trained in the execution of pilot scale experiments.
