      The Polaron pilot plant equipment also covers a pilot high pressure pump and a pilot pin rotor machine, also designed for a working pressure of up to 120 bar.

      The pilot pin rotor machine is available in different sizes with cylinders each consisting of up to three sections offering the possibility of having three different volumes per cylinder.


      A pilot resting tube mounted on a stainless steel mobile frame, N2 equipment for the pilot pump and a pilot homogenising arrangement are also available.
