Process Development

‘Beyond Standards’ is Flowid’s slogan for a reason. We have an open approach. Starting with getting a thorough understanding about a process by listening and questioning your experts. During the engineering phase we don’t jump to conclusions. We have a variety of equipment available for testing to eliminate the unknown and uncertain. A fully equipped laboratory and a dedicated pilot hal is part of Flowid’s infrastructure. Testing is possible on laboratory and pilot scale. Scaling up between the two is what we do best.
