The Model Cg pilot plant can be setup to test a variety of membrane pore sizes, operating parameters (pressure, transmembrane pressure, cross-flow rate, temperature, backpulsing, etc.), and feed channel diameters (3mm, 4mm, and 6mm) to achieve optimal performance.
The ceramic membranes are available in a range of pore sizes or molecular weight cutoffs (MWCO): Membrane Filtration/Ultra Filtration membranes from 5 micron to 0.02 micron; Ultra Filtration /Nano Filtration membranes of 5,000 and 1,000 MWCO.
The pilot plant can be operated in: batch mode, semi-batch mode, or feed and bleed mode. The pilot plant design has a single stage recirculation loop.
The Model C membrane filtration pilot plant is skid mounted and will be delivered with all the components required for quick installation and easy operation, including an operating manual with data sheet templates.
