Custom Design of Training Facilities

Pilot Plant Development

Working with our partner JBA Specialist Engineering Services, we provide regular support to R&D within the process, renewables, energy, and chemical sectors. This often takes the form of the development of benchtops and much larger pilot plants to prove a new process or develop the initial trials on a small-scale demonstration plant. We also take this expertise into education and training, with the custom combination of trainers integrated to suit specific client requirements and the development of larger “mini plant” training skids. These larger-scale trainers can be provided with a mezzanine level designed to accommodate more trainees in a real industrial environment. These units can be transported within standard-sized shipping containers, and to be erected with minimal site work.

Consulting Services

DarbyTech equipment listed is primarily for the training of operations personnel and chemical engineering technologists. Additionally, other unit operation simulators, emulators, and/or mimic trainers may be recommended for a comprehensive operations training facility. In addition, we can also provide highly specialized consulting services to prepare specifications for the necessary laboratory equipment and assist with the procurement and commissioning of this equipment to support defined training objectives. Consulting services for laboratory facilities and equipment requirements are available on a fee-for-service basis including:

  • Evaluation of existing facilities/programming against training objectives
  • Modification, up-grading or enhancing existing training equipment
  • Writing student exercise and operating manuals for existing equipment
  • Assessment of laboratory equipment requirements for training
  • Development of lab equipment specifications for supplier selection
  • Procurement services for equipment for complete laboratory facilities
  • Operator training programming, courseware, and sourcing
  • Management of Technology Transfer projects
DarbyTech provides consultation services on training equipment planning requirements and evaluation at all levels including:
  • Process Operations / Chemical Engineering Laboratory Equipment Specifications
  • Process Control Laboratory Equipment Specifications
  • Process Analyzer Laboratory Equipment Specifications
  • Mechanical Crafts Laboratory Equipment Specifications
  • Instrument / Electrical and Mechanical Laboratory Equipment Specifications and Procurement
In our experience, most corporate requirements for new plants or indigenizing of the workforce require three key training streams:
  • Process operators (perhaps sub-divided into outside and control room operators)
  • Instrument / Electrical craftsmen
  • Mechanical / Millwright craftsmen

"DarbyTech can provide generic specifications for the equipment necessary for this training."
