Compact Membrane Filtration Systems

GEA EasyCon Filtration Unit

Designed to concentrate solids by nanofiltration (NF) or reverse osmosis (RO) membrane filtration technology, the compact and standardized “plug and play” EasyCon is available for small-to-medium feed rates and can concentrate a feedstock to provide a solution with a total solids (TS) content of up to 25%.

Cost-effective EasyCon

When cost is key and improved return on investment (ROI) is of great importance, the EasyCon Filtration Unit is the right choice for concentrating solids.

GEA cross-flow filtration technology with nanofiltration or reverse osmosis spiral-wound membranes can be used to concentrate the solids content of various feedstocks. 

For concentration applications, reverse osmosis membranes should be used. If a partial demineralisation is required, nanofiltration membranes are recommended. Operating at temperatures of approximately 10–15 °C, the filtration unit eliminates the risk of thermally stressing the product.

EasyCon - easy to install and operate

Frame-mounted and ready for installation, the EasyCon unit includes filtration modules with nanofiltration or reverse osmosis membranes, pumps, instruments, a clean-in-place (CIP) dosing unit and control technology for automatic and easy operation.
