Our fully equipped, 350m² R&D centre with Sanas 17025 certified water analytical section incorporates the latest water treatment technologies, in keeping with regulatory & sustainability best practice. The centre is a factory of pioneering work in the water treatment industry. Here we house state-of-the-art testing equipment to run a full range of lab testing, trial plants and processes including Reverse Osmosis, Nanofiltration, Ultrafiltration, Ceramic Membrane Technology, Disinfection Solutions, Electrodeionization (EDI) and more. Our chemists and engineers are constantly improving our settlers, resin, Reverse Osmosis systems, ion exchange technology, and specialised DAF (dissolved air flotation) techniques.

The lab is fully equipped with both bench scale and skid-mounted pilot water treatment plant equipment that is capable of testing a diverse range of unit operations, on or off-site, including water analysis, wastewater management systems, membrane autopsies, Reverse Osmosis plants, 3-D modelling, and design & build. This enables us to ensure our customers are achieving their KPIs.
