We Look Forward to Facilitating the Testing of your Specific Application

Processall’s testing facility in Cincinnati, Ohio is a modern, well-equipped facility designed to provide you with the data you need to develop your process, evaluate our equipment, and scale up to the production size equipment you intend to purchase. We can run batches in sizes from 1 to 25 gallons and perform accurate mixing, granulating, drying and reacting tests. The typical test takes from 1 to 3 days and may include runs on several different pieces of equipment.

Three mixing and drying units are available for testing

What do I do to initiate a test?

First, contact your Processall representative to secure a test date. Typically, test dates are attained two to six weeks in advance so that arrangements can be made and materials acquired. In order to insure strict confidentiality, we only schedule one customer in at a time; therefore space is limited. Secondly, we encourage you to prepare a syllabus describing the tests you wish to perform, including batch sizes, recipes, sampling procedures, time involved, etc. We can better serve you when we are prepared in advance
and this allows us to review the procedure prior to test day.

Customer Testimonial

Shepherd Powder Blending Manufacturing Transparent Logo

“As part of our new product development process, we utilized Processall’s plow tilt-a-mix mixer under their laboratory rental and product testing programs. We took advantage of their larger plow tilt-a mixer to manufacture kilogram scale quantities of a development product needed for customer testing. The Processall team is very knowledgeable and responsive to our application needs.”
