piloting

Pilot plant projects typically have these main objectives:
  • Validation of pre-designed membrane systems for full-scale projects, optimizing the operational settings and establishing Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) such as plant capacity, permeate water quality, energy and chemicals consumption, and overall recovery
  • Demonstrating the benefits of X-Flow membrane technology to end users, showing the clear advantages compared with alternative solutions
  • Testing the technical and commercial feasibility of new membrane products and applications, in close cooperation with X‑Flow R&D and end users

Pilots optimize performance

Most of our pilot plants are containerized and feature a panel PC with standardized yet flexible software, allowing for remote control and settings optimization. A typical pilot at a customer site will take 3 to 12 months, depending on the application. The pilot begins with a start-up and training week, in which one of our experienced pilot engineers is present on-site.

Performance is monitored and controlled throughout the pilot trial period. A process engineer from our Sales Engineering department is involved to ensure adequate translation of the pilot results to the ideal full-scale basic design. Pilot performance optimization is a continuous process of data exchange and discussion between engineers, with the operational settings and KPIs agreed upon in the pilot plan as the starting point.
