New Packaged High-Quality Water System is “Good to Go”

Axium’s new Good to Go packaged water treatment system is designed for water purifying applications and delivers commercially sterile, sustainable, high-quality water, bypassing the need for ion exchange beds and chemical treatment processes.

The system, which utilises Reverse Osmosis technology, is being used for applications where low conductivity (salt removed) water is required and can be used in conjunction with complementary processes such as carbon filtration and ultraviolet (UV) treatment, providing a robust and versatile solution to tackle almost every water purification application.

Delivered as a packaged solution, requiring only minimal operator intervention and very low maintenance, Axium’s  “Good to Go” system is supplied with high rejection low energy membranes, stainless steel housings and pipework throughout, cartridge filter, multiple sample points, conductivity monitor, feed pressure switches, variable area flow meters and an inverter-controlled pump as standard.

The company, which specialises in the design and build of membrane filtration systems, can provide “off the shelf” or “custom solutions” to suit specific requirements.

316L Stainless Steel Filters You Can Rely On

Axium Process has developed its range of hygienic stainless steel filters ensuring ease of use, simple maintenance, dependability and outstanding quality is at the forefront of its design.

The standard filter range is available with short delivery times in order to meet customer demand and has a 90 degree or in-line housing option with fully interchangeable and replacement elements.  The elements, which can be safely removed without specialist tooling, cleaned or steamed in place and quickly put back into service reducing unnecessary downtime, are available in wedge-wire, sintered mesh and perforated tube providing a filtration range from 5 microns up to 8000 microns. Axium’s filters provide a reliable solution for critical applications such as a pre-filter for pumps or debris capture for CIP.

The popular wedge-wire design is widely used for applications where product consistency and smoothness is essential and for powder dispersing applications.

The sintered mesh screen is ideal for high or low-temperatures and is used in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage industries for the removal of suspended solids, micro-flakes, fibres and for glass contamination prevention.    For process security duties or coarse filtration applications, the company’s perforated tube screen provides a robust and flexible solution.

When more complex filtering is required, Axium’s innovative filter systems can provide improved process efficiencies and substantial cost savings by reducing downtime, maintenance and screen renewal costs.  The filter’s robust construction enables automatic or manual backflush facilities which can be fitted to the filter without fear of damaging the elements. Axium’s filter systems include duplex, triplex and multiplex options and are engineered to give a small footprint, high flow rates and substantial dirt holding capacity. Systems can be customised with support framework, sample points,drainage, vent valves and pressure gauges.

Increased Demand For Versatile, Portable And Practical Containerised Systems

Increase Demand for Containerised Systems

Axium Process is experiencing an increased demand for “stand-alone” containerised systems which are quickly becoming a mainstream option for many types of applications across all industry sectors.Installations have ranged from clean room systems, water processing and filtration applications to digestate, leachate and effluent treatment.

The benefits of a quick to install, self-contained process, requiring minimal infrastructure and civil engineering, is an increasingly preferred option for capital investments

The advantages of a secure, portable asset include ease of transportation or re-location (even to remote destinations), absolute control of quality during construction and the ability to conduct pre-delivery preparation and commissioning procedures.

Axium’s customers are also benefitting from, reduced installation time on-site, minimal civil engineering and often freedom from planning permission, which together, translates into considerable time and cost savings.

Axium Process is one of the UK’s leading hygienic process system manufacturers and specialises in the design and build of bespoke containerised systems to suit specific site parameters and conditions.  The systems require minimal intervention and can be designed as either manual or fully automatic in operation using state of the art PLC control with live data logging and remote access options.
