Provision of services

Needs analysis

Depending on the product treated and your expectations, FIRMUS France, thanks to 20 years experiences in the membrane technologies field, will draw up specifications and will advise you to choose the most appropriate technologies (the best technico-economic ration). 

Technical feasibility study

To estimate the technical feasibility of a treatment FIRMUS France offers feasibility tests on pilot units whose size goes from lab-scale to pre-industrial level.

Process development

Technical feasibility being demonstrated, large-scaled tests often have to be carried out before the industrial installation.

FIRMUS France will help you to:

  • Define and set up a pre-industrial pilot unit to carry out tests on your site.
  • Define an experience plan.
  • Follow the tests evolution.
  • Draw up specifications to make an industrial installation

Turnkey solution proposal

Firmus France offers turnkey solutions, after examining your requirements and validation tests.

Installation assessment and process diagnostic

Firmus France visits your site to make a diagnostic or an assessment of your process.

Training

FIRMUS France offers yours technicians or engineers practical or theoretical training about membrane-filtration technologies.

Each year three days of training will be given to future staff of Concordia Station. Those people will work in Concordia Research Station for 14 months and will live without any outside help during the Antartic winter time which lasts 8 months. The training course is both theoretical and practical, thanks to the prototype made for the ESA to recycle water shower during a hypothetic trip on Mars.
