A Laboratory Plant as a Reliable Design Tool

Laboratory plant for extraction and rectification
Computer programming serves as a tool that can be used to enhance the simulating process in chemical development. There is, however, no substitute for the laboratory plant in evaluating process development.

Only a scientifically designed laboratory plant can provide a reliable basis for a scale-up of actual conditions. The correct design of a scale-up will serve as a valuable tool in evaluating existing laboratory processes under a variety of conditions and will prevent the misdirection of investment funding by enabling the testing of conditions without large quantities of material.

A laboratory plant can be equipped flexible, so the conditions in different production plants can be simulated. This can be done e.g. by exchangeable reactors, stirrers etc.

Continuous and batch plants can be used most efficiently when the degree of automation is high. In laboratory plant applications the aspect of reproducibility often is more important than the savings in man power. Automation of boring routine jobs makes the work more attractive and has a positive effect on motivation.
As there is not the „laboratory plant“, each of them is individually planned, built and finally tested by the manufacturer AP-Miniplant.
