What do pilot plant experts do? Pilot plant experts work closely with research scientists to scale chemical and biological processes. They are familiar with the 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
