Nanofiltration pilot and lab scale systems have been developed by Convergence Industry B.V. to evaluate the performance of NF membranes. The system can be customized up to a maximum pressure of 125 bar and works with most liquids. Corrosion resistant options such as Hastelloy are possible. In- line chemical dosing, backwash options, heating or other custom options are available. Typical studies include biofouling test, foulings test, cleaning tests, permeability tests and more.

Nanofiltration pilot and lab scale systems
The Convergence Inspector Titan/Colossus models are nanofiltration pilots suited for high pressure (125 bar) and high cross flow, like nanofiltration experiments. The Nanofiltration pilot can be fully customized and is typically used for membrane autopsies, quality control and R&D. A variety of experiments can be performed, such as:
- Biofouling tests
- Standard water flux tests
- Coupling a Ultrafiltration (UF) and Nanofiltration pilot (NF) to test pretreatment effects
- Coupling a Ultrafiltration (UF) and Reverse Osmosis pilot (RO) to test pretreatment effects
- Chemical influences tests
- General R&D experiments
- Membrane cleaning tests
Typical areas of use:
- Water applications
- Dairy applications
Equipped with components of high quality only, the Convergence Inspector Nanofiltration pilot is the most accurate system available with Coriolis Mass Flow meters . The system, in combination with the customized and user friendly software, is ideal for quality control and R&D on membranes.
The lab-scale Reverse Osmosis pilot (RO) systems and Nanofiltration pilot (NF) systems from Concergence are the most automated and accurate available on the market.
Organic Solvent Nanofiltration
Organic Solvent Nanofiltration (OSN) is an emerging field in membrane technology. The chemical engineering industry often achieved seperation of molecules using distillation, which requires series of high-energy processes. OSN offers an a-thermal speration tool as an alternative, which reduces energy-use during the serperation process.
Convergence offers complete lab scale Organic Solvent Nanofiltration systems.
