Experimental Tank in BHR Group's labExperimental Facilities

Physical experimentation, with the aid of large-scale test facilities, is a reliable way to simulate a current operation, understand the process, assess its performance and quantify the effect of modifications. BHR Group’s expert knowledge, combined with our wide range of facilities, enable us to create the perfect scaled model for your purposes and to run the tests you need to improve your design.

  • Stirred-tank reactors with a wide range of agitators and other internals up to 2.7m diameter
  • In-line rotor stators, ultrasonics
  • Channel and pipe mixing test facilities up to 150mm for pipes and 300mm for channels
  • Gravity and intensified separators
  • Wide range of viscometers and rheometers
  • Wide range of test and simulant fluids
  • Laboratory scale chemistry
  • Facilities for flammable and hazardous fluids
  • Specialist technicians to customise rigs for specific requirements
