Reverse Osmosis pilot

Reverse Osmosis lab scale pilot systems have been developed by Convergence Industry B.V. to evaluate the performance of NF or RO 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.

Reverse Osmosis pilot pilot and lab scale systems

The Convergence Inspector Titan/Colossus models are pilots suited for high pressure (125 bar) and high cross flow, like Reverse Osmosis experiments. The Reverse Osmosis 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 (NF)  to test pretreatment effects
  • Coupling a Ultrafiltration (UF) and Reverse Osmosis (RO)  to test pretreatment effects
  • Chemical influences tests
  • General R&D experiments
  • Membrane cleaning tests

Typical areas of use:

  • Water applications
  • Dairy applications
  • Pharmaceutical/Medical

Equipped with components of high quality only, the Convergence Inspector Reverse Osmosis 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 mark
