pilot plant fabrication

Your Application. Your Safety. Your Design.

Continental Technologies' "design from the end-user perspective" approach works because we speak your language. Key staff members have an average of 20 years experience in R&D operations and have operated bench-scale, lab-scale units and pilot plants during their career.

We understand that conceptual engineering and pilot plant operability go hand-in-hand. We can quickly grasp the unique requirements of your application and respond with process designs that ensure your unit will be operator-friendly and deliver the data and product you need.

Working with hazardous materials at extreme temperatures and pressures can be dangerous. We create process units that are in compliance with your industry’s standards and regulations. Our comprehensive approach includes “what if?” brainstorming with you to anticipate the potential hazards and define safety solutions appropriate for your application. Plus, our experience allows us to contribute to your formal safety review process.
