The FEECO Innovation Center offers a variety of thermal testing capabilities for high-temperature applications, with several continuous direct-fired and indirect-fired pilot kilns, as well as batch-scale direct-fired and indirect-fired kilns available.


Feasibility/Proof of Concept: Muffle furnace testing along with Thermal Gravimetric Analysis (TGA), Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC), and chemical analysis to determine your specific material's chemistry and reaction to heat.
Proof of Product:Batch testing where it is determined whether a product can be made to the required specifications.

Proof of Process: A continuous testing phase that aims to establish the equipment setup and parameters required for commercial production of your specific material.
Process/Product Optimization: An in-depth study to optimize your specific material’s characteristics and/or production parameters for an operating industrial kiln.
