Pilot plant experts work closely with research scientists to scale chemical and biological processes. They are familiar with the (typ.) four scales associated with process development – lab, pilot, demonstration, production – and the benefits and challenges associated with each. They need a strong grasp of chemical, mechanical, electrical, instrumentation and control engineering, as well as the discipline required to design and operate a safe plant. They understand the principles of heat and mass transfer, and how they uniquely relate to pilot scale equipment and processes.
