Refining and Petrochemical Development Technologies was formed to provide testing and fabrication services to the refining, petrochemical and energy industries. This company is wholly owned in a single member LLC registered in the state of Texas, bringing combined efforts (construction, operations, engineering, etc.) and intellectual property protection to our industrial customers. Conveniently located outside of Houston TX, the RPD Technologies testing center can support pilot/testing equipment of all scales ranging from bench scale units to semi-works.
RPD will provide engineering, construction and operation of pilot units on a contractual basis.
These are small scales units generally support feed rates of < 1 kg per hour and are typically used for catalyst/feed screening, proof of concept studies and kinetic development.
Theses small scales pilot units typically support feed rates ranging from 1 - 10 kg per hour and are generally used for the generation of performance data, kinetic validation and early process proof of concept studies.
These large-scale pilot/demonstration units typically support feed rates ranging from 10 – 1000+ kg per hour and are used for the process development and validation. The scale of these units is typically selected to be the smallest reliable size from which scale-up to commercial can be performed.
Several processes have been scaled-up to commercial and are in various phases of design, construction or commercial operation.
