Calcination and pyrolysis testing center

Every material is different. Knowing the diversity of product properties that can impact the treatment process, we provide you the possibility of testing your product in one of the pilot systems operated in our research centers.

Heat treatment testing facility

In our headquarters near Paris, we operate a dedicated heat treatment testing facility that allows testing of our Spirajoule equipment in operation with your product. Testing plants are based on our electrically heated screw conveyor that allows heating bulk products and powders in a controlled atmosphere and desired temperature up to the maximum of 800 degrees C.

Heat treatment allows us to check the changes in the structure and composition of processed materials, see how the products respond to the treatment, and confirm the feasibility of processing on a pilot scale.

By performing heat treatment testing, you receive the results corresponding to your individual needs. Tests allow you to establish mass and energy balance on your feedstock as well as provide proof of concept and product samples.

Our testing facility offers various tests, from material drying and densification to thermal treatment processes (debacterization, removal of volatiles, minerals and powders treatment, and heat treatment in controlled atmospheres). 150 different feedstocks have already been tested until today.

We also cooperate with professional research laboratories that can perform additional analyses. We can provide suitable propositions if you need to further research the products received from the process.
