PiloMem - Pilot Membrane Filtration Units
PiloMem units are designed for piloting of pressure driven membrane processes with typical batch sizes of 20-500 litres. All sorts of membrane modules in industrial scale can be used. The units are built in a stainless steel rack. Various membrane modules can be used on an industrial scale. The systems are installed in a stainless steel frame on rollers with a maximum base area of 80x120 cm and a maximum height of 2m. They can be used for the pressure-driven membrane processes microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration and reverse osmosis, at pressures up to 40 bar and in special designs up to 80 bar. The type PiloMem I has a pump that generates pressure and cross-flow, PiloMem II is a 2-pump system, with a smaller pressure generating feed pump and a pump in the membrane loop that generates high cross-flow for larger membrane modules.
The membrane modules are interchangeable. We offer the suitable modules for ceramic membranes and polymeric spiral-wound membranes, which we have optimized especially for minimal dead volume. Of course any other membrane module can be used.
The design of the systems is particularly focused on: Easy emptying, good cleanability (CIP) and low minimum working volume with the largest possible membrane area.
Concentration and diafiltration can be carried out automatically, via PLC or hardware-controlled. All the necessary measurement technology is integrated in the systems, so that any external feed container can also be coupled.
