Pilot Test Wastewater Equipment

Try-Before-You-Buy Rental Option: ALAR rents pilot units for field testing the technology on a small batch volume or side-stream. These machines are available for short-term trial periods to prove that the equipment meets effluent discharge compliance and solids disposal regulations. Pilot testing also provides field data that confirms the filter size, flow rate, chemical consumption, components and materials of construction.

The Auto-Vac® rotary vacuum drum precoat filter and Micro-Klean™ plate-n-frame filter press are the standard pilot test units available for rent. These dewatering machines are base models intended to filter 200 to 500 gallon batches per 8-hour shift.

On occasion, an automatic chemical batch pre-treatment skid system is available for rent. However, most customers provide their own in-house chemical treatment during the pilot test.

Get hands-on experience, see the results, and make the right equipment choice. Contact ALAR to learn more about the benefits of renting a pilot unit.
