Usefulness of Pilot Stations and Plants

Malcor, H (1960) Usefulness of Pilot Stations and Plants. In: Symposium on Pilot Plants in Metallurgical Research and Development, 15-18/02/1960, Jamshedpur.



Applied Incustrial Research can be, and generally is done either in the works which undertake production or in laboratories. PRODUCTION PLANT RESEARCH : It has the advantage of being very close to production site and, if crowned with success , its final adjustment will evidently be easy to make. This, however, has nume-rous disadvantages. Production disturbances: First of all, research causes oarturbations in the normal fabricating operations of the plant, having as a result lower, and less unif orm production. In point of fact, adjusting new devices sometimes causes many changes to be made. While doing so, the prod-uction units used for the trials often stand idle, thus giving a negligible yield. The same situation arises when the trials cannot be carried out consecutively but only at rather long interr-uptions. This is the case, for instance, when a study of the products resulting from a test takes a long time.
