WHAT DOES PILOT PLANT MEAN IN ENGLISH?

pilot plant

Pilot plant

A pilot plant is a small industrial system which is operated to generate information about the behavior of the system for use in design of larger facilities. The pilot plant can be used for training personnel for a full-scale plant. Pilot plants are used to reduce the risk associated with construction of large process plants. They do this in several ways: ▪ Computer simulations and semi-empirical methods are used to determine the limitations of the pilot scale system. These mathematical models are then tested in a physical pilot-scale plant. Various modeling methods are used for scale-up. These methods include: ▪ Chemical similitude studies ▪ Mathematical modeling ▪ Aspen/Hysys modeling ▪ Finite Elemental Analysis ▪ Computational Fluid Dynamics ▪ They are substantially less expensive to build than full-scale plants. The business does not put as much capital at risk on a project that may be inefficient or unfeasible. Further, design changes can be made more cheaply at the pilot scale and kinks in the process can be worked out before the large plant is constructed. ▪ They provide valuable data for design of the full-scale plant.

Definition of pilot plant in the English dictionary

The definition of pilot plant in the dictionary is a small-scale industrial plant in which problems can be identified and solved before the full-scale plant is built.
