Feedstock Testing

Crude Oil & Petroleum Based Feedstock Tests

Klean Commodities often performs tests with each new customer and its feedstock. These tests are often required to quantify the calorific value of feedstock and the value of finished products that can be produce via thermal a conversion process. These tests also enable our engineering team to recommend technologies and solutions for producing the best end products and the best plant designs. In Klean’s laboratories we have several test units is available for initial screening purposes. Purpose of the initial tests are to analyze the viability of the feedstock for a pyrolysis and gasification system.

Between 25 and 50 kg of feedstock is required from the customer for these tests, depending on the nature of the feedstock. Klean and its partners have extensive laboratory facilities, these facilities feature testing technologies that go beyond the capibilities of tradional analysis. The dedicated R&D laboratory offers a range of experimental equipment that is available for combustion, gasification, pyrolysis and contract research, including test rigs, gas cleaning reactors, a flame tunnel, and test engines.
