Scale-Up/Pilot Plant Production

Pilot Batches

After making a successful batch of your product in the lab, CJB Applied Technologies takes your project to our pilot plant. Production is on a bigger scale than the lab, but smaller scale than a commercial scale plant.

Making a pilot batch allows for issues to be addressed in a timely manner without large quantities of product being put at risk, it also gives you adequate volumes of product for trials, registration and/or the initial launch.


Two pilot plants allow large-scale formulation batches. Our pilot plants offer a wide range of equipment designed to match commercial production equipment as closely as possible. Products can be made from 30 to 600 gallons in a simulated production scale environment. QC lab and Operator training is included.
