EI divides its test facilities into two functional areas: full-scale systems and devices.
Full-scale testing is available for development and validation of process equipment that will be used in production. In addition to run-in testing of our systems, we offer proof of process testing for blending, mixing, drying and coating applications. This facility is also used for prototype development prior to design and construction of the full-scale production unit(s).
Device testing takes two general forms: material flow and process development for the CentriFlow®
family of equipment and verification of High Beta®
designs, plus their instrumentation and pitot arrays. For the CentriFlow®
, we perform a series of tests to determine flowability of customer submitted solids, to recommend material choices for the contact surfaces, and to validate function prior to field installation and commissioning. Information gathered will be analyzed to be certain that field applications will perform as specified.
devices are tested in our AMCA-certified airflow chamber. The tests are to validate High Beta®
design and VAPł®
pitot array performance under real and simulated conditions. Nearly all High Beta®
units are one-off's. This means that they have individual performance specifications that must be validated under laboratory conditions prior to installation. For larger High Beta®
units, such as those destined for electricity-generating power houses, we have the ability to send them to an outside laboratory capable of testing on this scale.
