Pilot testing and industrial trials

Alsys performs, especially, pilot testing and industrial trials in order to:

  • Demonstrate the expected performances of the membrane process
  • Provide the technical (design,...) and economical (OPEX, CAPEX) data necessary for the system development and risk assessment


The expected objectives are, therefore, the following:

  • Validation of the filtration process and the results obtained during the feasibility tests
  • Study the repeatability of the operating cycles (production, cleaning)
  • Study of membrane ageing, evaluation of fouling, optimization of CIP (Cleaning In Place)
  • Optimization of process parameters (velocity, pressure, cleaning frequency...)
  • Development of industrial scale applications (basic and detailed preliminary project studies, FEED study...)


Wide Variety of Membrane Technologies:

  • Cross-flow or dead-end process operation
  • Ceramic materials (based on oxide or silicon carbide) or polymeric
  • Tubular, flat sheet, hollow fiber , or spiral 
  • Reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, ultrafiltration, microfiltration
  • Pervaporation
  • Gas separation
  • Membrane contactor
  • Combination of coagulation / adsorption (bentonite, powder activated carbon) / oxidation (chemical, ozone) and membranes
