Scale-up and Pilot Plants

Scale-upJumping from lab developed formulations to full scale production inevitably leads to very expensive problems. Either the products fail or the equipment fails. This leads to losses of ingredients, upset factory managers and disenchanted distributors and users. The scale-up stage is critical to the success of your products. The volume of product typically needed for scale-up, field trials and test marketing of a new products are beyond the capacity of a laboratory but too small for full scale plants or toll manufacturers. Eureka! has purpose built pilot plants and experienced staff capable of supporting scale-up.
