The Fluor Pilot Plant

The Fluor Pilot Plant at the University of Surrey UK is designed to give chemical engineering students manufacturing experience. It utilises a safe process to produce a very pure saline solution from a contaminated salt feed. It demonstrates all the main functions from a general chemical process: chemical reaction, solids handling, filtration, heat exchange and gas absorption.

Although the chemical process is relatively simple to describe, the Standard Operating Procedures is complex. A crew of a minimum of three is required, and a dozen maintaining procedures should be continuously followed even when the plant is without alarms. The training programme is the core of a successful operation.
