Technical specifications

The pilot is made out of stainless steel 316L and is mounted on a stainless steel welded frame with 4 adjustable feet.


It is composed of :

  • A starting and cleaning tank made of stainless steel.

  • A feeding tank made of stainless steel.

  • A centrifugal pump.

  • A centrifugal pump, 2 m³/h, 2.5 bars (booster pump) in stainless steel, food quality manufacturing, stainless steel cowling

  • 2 liquid presence detectors ; vibrant blades detectors,

  • A pneumatic counter pressure valve to adjust the pressure toward the membrane

  • 3 stainless steel butterfly valves with handwheel

  • 1 air regulator

  • 12 butterfly valves in stainless steel, with setting handle

  • 3 pressure gauges mounted on separator

  • An on-line cooler (concentric bi-tubes) with probe Pt100 on recirculation loop to avoid the elevation of temperature during the process with an solenoid valve for the cold water coming from the network.

  • Temperature controller of the Pt100 probe in the electrical cabinet

  • A sight flow indicator

  • An electromagnetic float flowmeter for the circulation loop (stainless steel body)

  • A rotameter for the ultrafiltrate (microfiltration) (stainless steel body)

  • A module of microfiltration with ceramic tubes

  • Control cabinet (in painted steel) including :

    • the control and the safety devices of the pumps

    • the temperature controller/transmitter

    • the liquid presence detectors lights
