Laboratory analysis and trials

Laboratory Analysis:

To determine the wastewater characteristics

We directly analyze effluent samples in our own laboratory. We are specialized in the relevant measurements for wastewater treatment, such as COD, nitrate, nitrite, ammonium, acid capacity, total N, total P, filterable substances, sludge parameters, dry matters, dry residues.

Laboratory Trials: 

To determine and optimize the treatment concept

The laboratory trials allow to verify the determined performance of the treatment concept based on real wastewater conditions.

MBR Laboratory trial Helps to determine the performance of the MBR Technology for specific effluents in a short
time. Provides data for the plant dimensioning and the anticipated use of consumables for
operation on industrial scale.
UF Filtration trial In an UF filtration trial, the flux output of the membranes, the retention of certain components
and possibilities for membrane cleaning for liquids and sludges are determined. The
results contribute to the dimensioning and operation of the UF plant.
Membrane screening
The membrane screening helps to identify the adequate membranes for the separation of
organic compounds or salts from liquids. The results assist to dimension the plant more costeffectively.
Activated carbon adsorption By producing adsorption isotherms, the load capacity for COD and AOX for specific effluents
are determined and the expected activated carbon consumption is shown.

Jar tests

The Jar test for flocculation / precipitation trials of specific wastewater components helps to
identify the adequate chemicals and the respective consumables quantities as well as the
response times for an ideal separation of pollutants.
Anaerobic degradation
An anaerobic degradation trial allows to determine the substrate degradation and the gas
formation capacity for liquids, solids and sludges and thus possible potentials for electrical
energy production and heat supply.
