Pilot Testing

In order to find the best solution for your processing or wastewater treatment needs, Caloris can test a sample of your product or waste stream on a variety of pilot evaporation, membrane or drying units.

This testing provides our engineers the information they need to select the best system design and configuration to deliver optimal product quality, water purity and energy efficiency for your plant.

Here is an overview of our available units for testing:

Our Pilot Evaporators

Caloris has several different pilot evaporators for testing purposes:

Benchtop evaporator

Single stage, direct steam-heated, forced-circulation evaporator capable of ~15 lb/hr water evaporation

What Can Testing Tell Us?

Running samples on our pilot equipment can reveal many characteristics of your product feed that will help us determine the best equipment with which to process your feed stream. Viscosity rates, suspended solids and a slew of other factors can affect the efficiency and ultimate capabilities of different processing technologies. Running your sample on a pilot unit can ensure the optimum configuration is developed for your process.

On-Site Testing Available

All of our pilot units are available to be shipped to your plant for on-site testing. Your plant personnel can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our engineers to see the results first-hand. Simply call our main office at 410-822-6900 or send an email to problem.solved@caloris.com to arrange a test on one of our pilot units.
