Pilot to Production

With years of experience in the chemical and process industries, Process Results, Inc. is uniquely qualified to assist companies with the transformation from a research or pilot level to full commercial production. From assisting clients with the upfront decisions necessary to move a project forward to the detailed design of a production facility to house a new process, we have the resources and experience to ensure your "scale-up" project is a success.

Due to our close proximity to the University of Michigan, we have also provided engineering assistance to many small start-up companies. These companies normally require our assistance in the preliminary scope definition stage to assist with the development of conceptual design drawings, preliminary equipment sizing and selection, and cost estimating services. With our internal engineering process and years of engineering experience in working with smaller clients, we can provide the appropriate level of engineering services for your project.

Although the engineering services provided on these "scale-up" projects are unique to the specific client and process, the following are a few of the engineering services that are normally provided:

  • Scope definition
  • Conceptual and preliminary designs
  • Preliminary cost estimating
  • Facility improvements (structural and/or architectural)
  • Sizing and selecting new process equipment
  • Automation and control upgrades
  • Upgrades to the general and process ventilation systems
  • Upgrading of utilities systems (i.e., electrical, natural gas, compressed air, specialty gases, city water, process water, etc.)
  • Development of project schedules and cost estimates
  • Experience with hazardous and/or explosive materials
  • Construction assistance
  • Commissioning and/or checkout and start up

With the diverse engineering background and experience at Process Results, we are confident our staff can assist you with taking your process from your laboratory or pilot setting to full production levels.
