Process Evaluation and Development

We are constantly working with our customers to determine the most cost-effective process solutions, based on the conditions that need to be met. We also can assist in the initial development of a process to achieve a specific outcome by utilizing tools such as pilot plant testing, advanced simulation programs and many years of field experience.

Process Design

Utilizing the most current process design concepts along with 3-D modeling programs and simulation software, Thermal Kinetics has the expertise to evaluate everything from a new process concept to working with an existing facility for a modification or expansion project. Our many years of experience and process knowledge has kept our customers coming back when new projects arise.

Pilot Plant Testing

Thermal Kinetics offers pilot plant testing for all of our market sectors. This testing can be an invaluable tool in helping a customer that is developing a new process or looking at what might happen during full-scale production. Very few companies have the ability to offer such a full, diverse range of testing and product evaluation.

Field Services

From site visit/verifications to process equipment start-up, Thermal Kinetics will be your partner for in-the-field assistance. We have the technical expertise to help with many questions that come up in the field and will work with you to solve issues, whether it is in regards to process performance, utility usage or maintenance questions.
