The Fitzpatrick range of equipment

Situated just forty minutes from Philadelphia’s International Airport, the location of the Facility makes it extremely convenient for customer visits.  

What can you expect?

We have equipped the Test Centre with a CCS320 roll compactor, which sits alongside the Matcon Powder Handling IBC systems. Customers will have an opportunity to have their product tested on this Fitzpatrick equipment, and to witness the results first-hand.  Conducting product testing in simulated working conditions helps our customers have confidence when they are making a capital investment in processing equipment.

If you are unable to witness your test, a videotape of the results along with a detailed confidential report can be made available.

What constitutes the Lab’s equipment capabilities?

The CCS320 roll compactor is designed for pilot-scale research, so is ideal for the test lab.  All results are directly scalable to production-scale equipment, so a result achieved at Delran, will be transferable to your factory environment. Our engineers can use the test results to ensure you buy the right roll compactor and have the parameter settings optimised to meet your processing needs.

We also have benchtop laboratory equipment to assist in the analysis of your material properties before the roll compaction session begins.

Furthermore, having the CCS in a test lab also provides us with a fantastic opportunity to offer demonstrations and conduct training sessions for operators on full scale equipment.

Can products be tested at your site?

In some instances, rental units can be made available for trials at your individual production site.  It can sometimes be beneficial and more telling, to undertake additional testing in your every-day environmental conditions.
