Modular Process Systems & Pilot Plants

Pilot Plant Manufacturers

EPIC designs and builds modular pilot plant skids and systems that prove full-scale production levels through expertly placed instrumentation and testing stations.  Unlike other pilot plant manufacturers, our expert engineering team can help you both design your modules and ensure quality fabrication and assembly, all under one roof.  We provide expert process, mechanical, and control system design. Contact an engineer today to start designing your custom pilot skid.

Next Steps: Scaling Your Process Technology to a Turnkey Pilot Plant

EPIC utilizes your process technology and our chemical and mechanical engineering expertise to scale up the most efficient pilot plant for your needs. We are experienced at fully extracting your technical, operational and commercial specifications and creating the right timeline for you. We are a rare pilot plant engineering company with in-house process fabrication and experienced craftsmen. We offer expertise in process capabilities, scale-up, and modular design/build that will help you make your process better. Our complete modular process plants go through five main steps to completion:

  • Step 1: Contact an Engineer (314) 845-0077  to start discussing the specifics of your project
  • Step 2: Meet with our team to complete Front-End Engineering, to ensure the proper steps are taken during pilot plant design and build
  • Step 3: Receive detailed design documents to review, once EPIC’s experts have selected equipment and finished 3D modeling/simulation.
  • Step 4: Controls engineering begins for your system, with completion during system assembly
  • Step 5: Modular design/fabrication completion. Our approach reduces traditional downtime through parallel construction, resulting in cost-savings, increased safety and faster project delivery. Learn more about the benefits of modular design…
    • We maintain an open door client policy to promote innovation and communication. We invite clients to visit EPIC throughout project design and construction stages
  • Step 6: Full FAT testing at EPIC’s shop, with completed pilot skids shipped to your facility for installation.
  • Step 7: Installation and start-up (commissioning) at your facility, with minimal interruption to existing operations. Our team imparts a transfer of knowledge, not just basic training, for the systems and equipment we provide
  • Accepted file types: jpg, jpeg, png, gif, pdf, doc, docx, ppt, pptx, odt, avi, ogg, m4a, mov, mp3, mp4, mpg, wav, wmv, zip.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Modular Pilot Plant Design Advantage

Modular pilot plant companies, with design & fabrication under one roof, provide the following advantages:

  • Better access to testing equipment and instrumentation
  • Space savings in your plant or research facility
  • Shorter build time and higher quality construction
  • Portability – pilot plants are easily portable to new locations

Using our modular approach, EPIC’s engineers develop the fastest time-to-market, most capital-efficient pilot-scale equipment for process manufacturing. Learn more about the advantages of modular  pilot plants, or contact one of our process experts today to start developing your custom module.

Two Phase Batch Reaction-to-Distillation Pilot Plant

Argo Genesis partnered with EPIC to take a newly formulated asphalt additive and scale it to a set of pilot plants. EPIC worked with lab data and the client’s knowledge of the process to design and fabricate a two-phase batch-reaction-to-distillation processing plant. The final pilot module serves as a test plant for R&D bio-polymer development at Iowa State University.


Key features: Two phase batch reaction-to-distillation system, technology scale-up, bio-polymer processing system
