Pilot Scale Production and Processing

PCI Membranes can recommend the most suitable membrane and module type for your application. We can also provide test programmes, and from the data collected design full-scale plants with budget or firm quotations.

The pilot unit is designed for pilot scale work and may be used to process a wide variety of aqueous solutions using Microfiltration (MF), Ultrafiltration (UF), Nanofiltration (NF) and Reverse Osmosis (RO). A wide range of membranes is available to suit the required application.

Both designs are supplied with instrumentation necessary for scale-up data to be collected accurately and easily. Customisation is available to allow use for small production in continuous, semi-continuous or batch operation.
