Service & Commissioning

We principally support membrane-based systems such as Reverse Osmosis, Nanofiltration and Ultrafiltration plants to ensure correct operation and helping to prevent downtime and failures.

Your reverse osmosis plant servicing partner

The primary goal of our Service and Commissioning team is to ensure consistent performance and unwavering reliability of your reverse osmosis long after handover. In the unlikely event of a system malfunction, our service team are ready and equipped to join you wherever you are in the world and fix the problem.

In addition to supporting our own equipment, our team can also support third party plants with health checks and upgrades that will breathe new life into your system and extend the lifespan of your equipment.
