Lab Trials & Material Processing

Our state-of-the-art laboratory provides proof-of-concept testing allowing EIRICH to successfully demonstrate the optimum process parameters and the correct type of equipment required for your application. All new and customer-specific applications are validated and documented in production tests using the customers’ original materials.

Our Fully Equipped, On-Site Test Facility

The EIRICH on-site test lab, located at our US facility in Gurnee, IL, offers a wide variety of equipment for testing or rental. Process engineers are on hand to assist with application knowledge gathered in EIRICH’s worldwide test facilities. Customers are encouraged to participate and observe the lab testing of their products at the Gurnee facility. The equipment is also available for in-plant testing at the customer’s own facility.

We also offer lab tests via livestream video for those who don't want to travel. This enables you and your team to interact directly with our test lab manager and watch live as your material is being processed. You will see microscope images of your processed product, and after the trial has been completed you will receive recorded videos and an extensive lab report filled with data and conlusion. All from the comfort of your office or home! 

"I would like to commend you on the trial recording as it demonstrated the dedicated passion and expertise of your team. The team's confidence in your equipment was illustrated when you can record the trial on an unknown material."  - Verne Hogg, ZMM Canada Minerals.

The right technology for your task

Spacious premises with 2,500 sqm of floorspace house modern machines which are constantly modernized and added to for all relevant applications:

  • Laboratory and pilot machines, both for batch and continuous operation
  • Complete processing lines with extensive peripheral equipment
  • Process data acquisition
  • State-of-the-art computation and simulation methods

An in-house test laboratory offers the following extensive equipment:

  • Standard processes for particle measurement (dry and wet screening, air jet screening, camsizer, laser diffraction analysis)
  • Microscopes with image capture
  • Quick-test moisture measurement devices
  • Drying chambers, muffle furnaces, diverse scales for analytical, fine and coarse weighing
  • Molding sand testing units
  • Photometers, IR cameras
  • REM microscope
  • Texture analyzer (a testing machine for determining the physical properties of diverse materials) for, e. g. determining granule strength

Individual Solutions

  • Many customers and users make use of the opportunity to have tests carried out with original materials. On a laboratory scale materials in amounts of at least 50 g can be processed. On a production scale material amounts of up to approx. 500 kg can be processed.
  • Installations from  temporary plant installations for realistic investigations of process and system constellations.
  • Explosion-protected machines and systems enable tests to be carried out with combustible and potentially explosive solid materials and solvents.

You, too, can make the most of the fascinating possibilities offered by the EIRICH Test Center and arrange a consulting meeting with us without obligation – and it can take place at your premises if you wish.
