Membrane Pilot Plant (PSta06-PLC)

The PSta06-PLC was designed and built for pilot trials with different technical membrane modules. With the universally applicable unit experiments in the field of micro- and ultrafiltration can be carried out. In the version described here, the unit has a stainless steel pressure tube for spiral-wound modules (here 6”) and a stainless steel pressure tube for ceramic membranes (here Pall EP19/40). Its flexible design enables the adaption of various other stainless steel pressure tubes or modules (such as hollow fibre). The equipment of the unit and the arbitrary use of different types of membranes and materials enable experiments in research and development as well as in a wide range of industrial applications.

The system described here, is designed as a fully automated system. All functions, process steps and measurement data are controlled and monitored via a PLC. The process parameters are variable and can be adjusted at any time. All measurement control data can be recorded, standardized and visualized via an external data acquisition system. The test data is stored in a format readable by excel.

Field of use:

  • Comparison of different types of membranes and materials in technical membrane modules
  • Cleanability experiments of various types of membranes and meterials
  • Optimization of process parameters of industrial applications
  • Concentration experiments
