Iverson, H G (1960) Role of Metallurgical Pilot Plants in the United States. In: Symposium on Pilot Plants in Metallurgical Research and Development, 15-18/02/1960, Jamshedpur.
The large capital costs of metallurgical plants and rapidly advancing metallurgical technology have forced industry in the United States to rely increasingly on demonstration or pilot-plant investigations to minimize the risk of economic or technical.failure of new install-ations. This commonly accepted use, which has been discussed frequently in technical journals, arises from several causes . Among these are the growing dependence on lower-grade ores or different types of ores than have been previously used, and on the increasing per-capita consumption, of nearly all metals and metal-bearing products. Other reasons are the advent of new metall-urgical processes , the need for new or higher quality products, and the availability of better equipment.
