The FEECO Innovation Center is a unique testing facility where we can conduct both batch and pilot-scale testing on hundreds of materials. The only facility in North America with such diverse and comprehensive testing capabilities, the Innovation Center is where ideas come to life.

FEECO offers a broad range of equipment and systems for agglomeration, granulation, drying, and high temperature thermal applications. Material can be tested on a single device, or as part of a continuous process loop integrating multiple pieces of equipment.

Process experts can guide you through the testing process to provide the answers you’re looking for. Various material characteristics can be analyzed during the testing process to ensure a material will meet its intended application. In combination with our state-of-the-art PLC/MCC system from Rockwell Automation the testing in the Innovation Center offers unmatched data collection, trending, reporting, and ultimately, process transparency. Process experts used the data gathered during batch and pilot-scale testing to scale-up the process to commercial production.

Whether you’re looking to optimize an existing process or product, have an idea for a new product, or would like to adapt a product for a new market, the Innovation Center is well-equipped to suit all of your testing needs. FEECO offers comprehensive testing capabilities in four categories:

Feasibility/Proof of Concept: An initial, non-witnessed batch testing phase in which the possibility of creating a product is explored.

Proof of Product: A more in-depth batch testing phase in which more time is spent determining whether a product can be made to desired specifications.

Proof of Process: A continuous testing phase that aims to establish the equipment setup and parameters required for continuous production of your specific material.

Process/Product Optimization: An in-depth study to optimize your specific material’s characteristics and/or production parameters in an industrial setting.
