The laboratory test program is currently underway.
For all tests, we use Ex-Tar’s first model of a Bench Scale Laboratory Direct Contact Steam Generator (DCSG).
Test results include toxicity tests of the steam produced by the DCSG from Oilsands Mature Fine Tailings (MFT).
We are currently working to improve our first Bench Scale DCSG model to achieve better temperature stabilization and heat transfer.
A second model of a Bench Scale laboratory DCSG is currently in the early design phase.
Please contact us if you would like to test your tailings or other waste liquid products using our Bench Scale Laboratory DCSG. Currently we will not test highly toxic samples or samples that do not have MSDS.
