Crossflow membrane filtration system monitoring

Crossflow membrane filtration system monitoring.

Our business is to provide ceramic and polymer membranes, membrane systems and process development services:

  • MF microfiltration,
  • UF ultrafiltration,
  • NF nanofiltration,
  • RO reverse osmosis.

Once the filtration system is installed, we are also able to assist our customers in the operation of their installation.

First, during the commissioning of the installation, Alsys engineers and technicians assist the customer in the start-up and the training of the personnel: assembly of the modules, tightness test, integrity test by bulloscopy, adapted cleaning protocol, training to the operation of the filtration unit...

In addition, our teams frequently carry out audits and technical assistance services. Regular monitoring of the crossflow filtration system guarantees its performance over time.

Multiple factors can be responsible for poor performance of industrial installations. This is why it is important to set up a maintenance routine and key performance indicators. On-site monitoring ensures the sustainability of your installation. The use of a remote connection limits the intervention costs. And enables follow-up of key information in real time, resulting in faster reactivity in case of incident.

Alsys can also help you upgrading existing systems. This may include rehabilitation or revamping of a failing system by addition of hardware, or a change in process control.

Alsys has deep experience in the optimization of existing systems, such as improving the CIP procedure, or with upgrading the system instrumentation in order to minimize the operating costs.

Membrane replacement

In case of membrane replacement, Alsys offers its after-sales services to dismantle the module and install new membranes. Seals are also changed during this operation. Before scheduling a membrane retrofit, Alsys recommends a complete review of the system performance and procedures, for instance. The purpose of the review is to determine if the membranes' life can be extended.

Finally, Alsys offers its expertise and examination services for ceramic and polymer membranes at end of life.

Membrane autopsy can be performed in Alsys’ laboratories. With the help of tools such as SEM microscope and chemical analysis. And with the experience and expertise of our personnel, we can characterize any membrane damage. In fact, we can characterize any membrane deterioration due to chemical or mechanical effects, and the severity and composition of the fouling layer. Based on the autopsy findings, Alsys will provide recommendations for improvement.
