Bench Scale Engineering

What is meant by “bench scale”?

Bench scale refers to the testing of materials, methods, or chemical processes on a small scale, such as on a laboratory worktable or inside a lab hood or glovebox.

  • Materials may be measured in a few grams to several hundred grams.

  • The typical objective is to verify that the process can be safely performed and yield the desired product.

  • Overcoming the most basic challenges in the road from concept to full-scale implementation is a key objective.

  • Quality and efficiency are usually not overriding concerns at this stage.​
