Sustain high performance with system testing and analysis 

每个水处理系统都是独一无二的, and so are the challenges you face in keeping your 系统 running at peak efficiency. The impacts of a damaged or poorly operating system can include operational downtime and additional costs for:

  •  维修.
  •  更换系统组件.
  •  清洗污染系统.
  •  增加能源使用.
  •  使用效率低下的化学.
  •  系统停机时间和减少的生产能力.

System optimization services (SOS) puts our global team of highly skilled, 有经验的科学家和技术人员为您服务. 只收取少量费用, we’ll conduct an assessment using state-ofthe-art equipment and methods to identify critical issues affecting your 超滤(UF), 纳滤(NF), 反渗透(RO)和/或 离子交换(第九) 系统. These services can lighten the burden of system startup and staff training, 以及协助排除故障, 正在进行操作, 和维护.

  • 我们提供测试, 评价, and troubleshooting of membrane elements and modules in 反渗透(RO), 纳滤(NF), 以及超滤系统. Our battery of tests includes both nondestructive and destructive testing modalities.

    无损检测 一般是非侵入性的,包括:

    • Physical inspections of an element or module to observe the physical integrity of the element and identify potential foulants.
    • Performance testing to determine how the element or module performs compared to new product specifications.
    • Cleaning-cycle testing and visual inspection to indicate what type of cleaning would be most effective to improve performance.
    • Probing profiles (RO element) or integrity test (UF module) to see the rate of vacuum decay, indicating either mechanical integrity or a leak of the membrane element.
    • Module- and fiber-integrity tests to identify potential leaks by holding pressurized air in the feed side of the module.

    破坏性的测试 更具有侵略性,包括:

    •    Fortilife™DIRECTOR™生物膜可视化工具 to: 
      • 准确测定膜生物污染状况.
      • 优化清洗效率.
      • 定义最优替换策略.
      Dye testing to determine the cause(s) and the location of salt passage.
    •  元素或模块解剖和膜分析.
    •  Determination of fouling, scaling or chemical damage through:
      • 验证的比例.
      • 生物淤积分析.
      • 有机污染分析.
      • 膜的化学降解.
      • Elemental analysis of the membranes (identification of metals, 硅, etc.).
      • 卤素的识别.
  • 我们提供测试 and 评价 of ion exchange resins and adsorbents to determine the performance and condition of your current system operation and, 如果需要, help troubleshoot and identify the root cause for challenges. We can also retest resins that have been warehoused beyond their recommended storage period. 


    • 显微珠粒检查(MBE): determines the physical integrity of the beads and if there are contaminants or fouling on the resin surface.
    • 粒度分布: uses a light-blocking device to show bead harmonic-mean size, 均匀系数, 以及标准屏幕尺寸的百分比.
    • 总交换容量(TEC): measures the total number of ion exchange sites per volume of resin after regeneration in the lab and compares the performance of a sample to a new resin to show the sample’s operating capacity.
    • 接收总交换容量(接收时的TEC): measures the number of ion exchange sites in the regenerated (H+ or OH- ) form to help determine the efficiency of regeneration (if the sample is regenerated) or the extent of exhaustion (if the sample is not regenerated/exhausted).
    • 保水能力(WRC): 测量树脂的内在水分含量. Elevated water content indicates degradation of the polymer chain, while depressed water content typically results from accumulation of foulants on the beads.
    • 有机和/或无机污垢: measures the degree of fouling (organic or inorganic) accumulation on the anion resin, 用不同的分析方法.
    • Salt-splitting能力(SSC): measures the strong base (quaternary amine) sites on an anion resin. Salt-splitting sites are necessary to remove weak acid species such as bicarbonate and 硅. A reduction in SSC typically indicates an increase in weak base capacity.
    • 传质系数(MTC): measures resin kinetics (a resin’s ability to quickly remove ions from solution). 随着树脂年龄, the rate of exchange may not be fast enough to remove all ions before flow reaches the bottom of the bed, thus exhibiting poor operating performance while maintaining a high total exchange capacity. 
    • 树脂清洗测试: determines if the resin would benefit from cleaning to remove organics, 铁, 硅, 或其他物质. After cleaning, retesting of the resin evaluates the degree of performance recovery.
    • 渗透冲击和损耗(OSA): evaluates the resin for osmotic stability by repeated cycles through exhaustion and regeneration using concentrated reagents. The parameter measured to detect the attrition resistance is designated as percent fragmented beads, which is an indication of the resistance of the beads to fragmentation and cracking.
  • We can conduct a complete water analysis and provide you with a specific breakdown and balance of:

    • 阳离子和阴离子.
    • pH.
    • 硅.
    • 金属.
    • 总有机碳(TOC).


完成建议的测试后, our technical experts will analyze the data and suggest corrective actions that address the root cause of system underperformance, 以最大化整体运营为目标.
