On June 28, we shipped a trailer-mounted pilot system to a customer in Indiana. The on-site pilot system will operate for several weeks, demonstrating how the full-scale process would work. The system is designed to treat flue gas desulfurization (FGD) wastewater to meet Effluent Limitations Guidelines (ELG) limits. The technology components featured on this pilot system include:
- ProChem’s I-PRO™ industrial high-pressure reverse osmosis unit
- ProChem’s I-Micro™ microfiltration system
- Membrane clean-in-place system
The 40-foot conex container also includes a laboratory area for process water testing, jar testing, and analysis of treated water, as well as a control area including HMI and SCADA monitors to allow for continuous monitoring and control of all process systems. Before the pilot system left ProChem’s headquarters, our Water Systems team put it through its paces to ensure safety, quality, and ease of installation at the customer site.
ProChem provides on-site pilot testing to demonstrate a treatment program’s performance in a live environment. Pilot tests provide an opportunity to optimize and enhance the performance of the program on site, so that our customers are confident that what they purchase meets their goals.
