Consulting Services

LIGHTNIN has long supported the need of providing full service mixing support to our valued customers. Evaluation and resolution of our customer's mixing issues has been a core strength for many years at LIGHTNIN.

LIGHTNIN will evaluate your existing mixer design and process goals to determine opportunities for improvement. LIGHTNIN will team with your technical group to reduce time and expense for developing new mixing applications. LIGHTNIN can assist in the specification of mixer design, tank internals, feed stream locations and product draw-off position to optimize your operation. LIGHTNIN has extensive experience in scaling up lab designs and achieving guaranteed full-scale performance.

LIGHTNIN's consulting work starts with a discussion of your needs and process information. Then a proposal is created to define the project scope, responsibilities, deliverables, cost and schedule.
