Pilot Plants

A "Pilot Plant" is considered a set of unit operations.

The Pilot Plant is a small-scale process plant designed to obtain information that can be used in industrial scale processes.

They allow for carrying out feasibility studies of designs and processes on an industrial scale, thus reducing the cost of the initial investment.

At present, simulators are available for the study of processes. However, simulators do not allow for predicting behavior or obtaining data from new processes in order to optimize them. Therefore, having a Pilot Plant related to the study or work process offers multiple advantages over simulators.
