Pilot Plant Testing

Testing solutions to simulate production environment

Ludman Industries maintains a pilot plant testing facility, designed to simulate your production environment. Our pilot testing facility contains lab scale equipment of all Ludman products, including roll compactors, flake breakers, roll crushers (granulators), screens, scales, etc.

We simulate site processes by adjusting moisture of product, temperature, pressure, roll speed, etc. during compaction, briquette press, crushing with flake breakers, granulation with roll crushers, screening, recirculating fines, drying and curing, binders, and so on.

We test product characteristics that affect agglomeration and product sizing. We have the ability to test most corrugation combinations for precise sizing solutions.

Standard test services include testing of product and a full technical report with samples. We do accept special requests for testing, across many applications. Test results and fees vary based on customer provided material and desired end-product.
