Benefits of our containerized pilot systems:
Having completed more than 2.000 projects worldwide, Berghof Membranes has grown since 1972 to become the leader in tubular membrane solutions for industrial applications. Over these years we have gained a lot of experience with piloting studies for tubular ultrafiltration, allowing our customers to tackle even their most challenging wastewater applications. Interested in knowing more about our piloting approach? Please contact us and we will get back to you right away.
Our containerized pilot units are plug-and-play and feature standardized but flexible software, allowing them to be customized to your filtration challenge. They have been designed to be flexible with the aim of coping with a broad range of wastewater characteristics and operational conditions: several membrane types, filtration parameters, and flow capacities can be very easily implemented. The pilot units of Berghof Membranes are stand-alone and easy to connect, preventing extensive capital investments required. The pilots are automated for continuous operation, with fully safe operation and online monitoring.
A typical piloting project takes 2 to 12 months, depending on the application and the scope of the study. After the start-up and training of operators, where one of our experienced application engineers is present for you on-site, your pilot system will be up and running in no time. Throughout the pilot phase, the performance is monitored and controlled remotely. A Process Engineer of Berghof Membranes is closely involved to ensure you an adequate translation of the pilot results to the most competitive full-scale design. Optimization of the performance of the pilot is a continuous process of data exchange and consultancy from our experienced engineers.
Berghof Membranes combines premium membrane quality with outstanding know-how of implementation. Our experienced engineers are available to fully support you for the flawless operation of your ultrafiltration systems. Their extensive know-how makes a difference in the successful implementation of new membrane technologies. Together we maximize your membrane performance.
