Feasibility & Engineering Studies
Apart from the main activity, we also undertake, as a pre-requisite for
turnkey supply, a study to prepare pre-engineering document to convert
bench / lab-scale data to into pilot / mini plant design when very little
information about the process is available. This exercise is also useful
for estimating the project cost enabling the client to arrive at an
investment decision.

Revamping Existing Units
Xytel India offers specialized services to help clients revamp their
existing pilot plant resources.

AMC Services
Xytel India also undertake Annual Maintenance Contracts for Pilot/ Mini
Plants . Each AMC has a designated service engineer in lead role and
services will include visits at a mutually decided frequency, normal &
preventive maintenance operations, guidance & training for proper
operation & maintenance of pilot plants.
Automation of Pilot Plants
Xytel India offers solution to PC/PLC based system to replace existing,
stand alone control systems, PC based control systems.
