Onsite Pilot Testing Services & Rentals

Let our experts come to you!

Digested Organics specializes in customized solutions for wastewater treatment and process separations. We have a range of equipment available for onsite testing and rentals. Typically, onsite pilot testing involves a one week trial where our highly trained operators come to your site with one or more pieces of equipment and perform trials to mimic commercial operations. Our equipment collects operational data and produces representative samples of filtrate and concentrate for further analysis.

One Week Demonstrations

Want to quickly understand how our equipment will perform on your wastewater or process separation application? Here’s how a one week demonstration usually works:

  • Our equipment and operator arrive onsite Monday morning and begin setup. We provide a list ahead of the trial to make installation and startup as easy as possible. Typically, our equipment requires just a single electrical connection (3-phase, 480V) and access to nearby drains and water (a garden hose works well).
  • Our operator runs the equipment in the same manner we expect the commercial process to run. The unit units automatically log data every minute to determine equipment performance. Our operator will collect samples of the raw material, filtrate, and permeate periodically for further analysis.
  • Our operator will perform at least one and often several Clean-in-Place cycles to demonstrate how cleaning works and verify that your application does not present any unique challenges for cleaning.
  • We will involve any of your staff who is available in the pilot demonstration to help educate them about the equipment and its operations.
  • We compile a detailed report about all operations and data collected while onsite to help refine a commercial proposal.

Rentals

Want to demonstrate how our equipment works for longer than one week? Hold onto a rental skid for several weeks or months to gain better pilot data, understand day-to-day and week-to-week variability in your process fluid, and gain confidence in our system’s reliable performance. We typically rent equipment by the week or month and include onsite training and remote support for data collection and analysis.

Use our equipment and onsite expertise to validate performance with a one week or longer trial.

We continue to support rentals through remote access to the systems, collecting valuable performance metrics that allow us to size and quote a full-scale system.

Rely on our dedicated R&D Team to provide unique solutions to your wastewater and process separation challenges. By being onsite, we can learn more about your facility, discuss where full-scale equipment would ideally go, and train your staff about how our filter systems work.
