Oliver Sowerby

Orb Pilot’s Mechanical Design Engineer

“Chemists and Chemical Engineers told us they feel restricted when using scale-up chemistry equipment.  Hours or even days to change vessels, poor mixing ability, a lack of useful vessels sizes, and high costs.

We wanted to change the face of scale-up chemistry reactors – Orb Pilot is the result.

Designed from the ground up, Orb Pilot addresses all of the main pain points Chemists and Chemical Engineers like you experience.  Orb Pilot is designed for you.”
