Laboratory tests

Determine process development and filtration behaviour

Here we test and develop.

Welcome to our test center and filtration laboratory. BHS carries out about 150 tests per year worldwide in the field of Process Technology. State-of-the-art test and laboratory capacities are available in Sonthofen and Herrsching. On about 200 square meters, equipped with the latest process and laboratory technology, we carry out design tests and investigate the filtration behavior. And we are happy to do this in the presence of our customers. This is where we ensure that our technology and solutions will later work optimally for our customers and are perfectly adjusted to the respective process. For us, the test center and filtration laboratory are a place of certainty and at the same time room for innovation. We look forward to your visit.

Testing

Efficient filtration

Opting for the right technology in solid-liquid separation plays a key role in maximizing efficiency.

Our experts test the filtration behavior of the respective suspension to determine the design specs of the production filter. The facility also allows us to show you how the system works on a small scale, so you can quickly and easily implement it into your process later on.

All we need is your suspension. A very small quantity is all it takes to perform a highly reliable analysis of the filtration characteristics. The test results provide a solid basis for configuring the filter for production and determining the best possible method of operation. We also offer to carry out filter cloth analyses and fatigue strength tests for you.

Have we piqued your interest? We look forward to receiving your testing request.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Generation of filtration data is quick, simple and reproducible
  • Analysis of filtration parameters, even with the smallest filtration samples
  • Reliable design data for the production filter
  • Cutting-edge technology for lab tests
  • Filter cloth analyses & fatigue strength tests
  • Pocket leaf filter for on-site pressure and vacuum tests
  • Comprehensive range of rentable pilot filters & laboratory equipment

Benefits at a glance:

  • Stipulation of temperature, pressure, rotation speed, power consumption, and other operating parameters
  • Heat transfer calculation
  • Clarification of product behavior under mechanical and thermal stress
  • Stipulation of all optimal process conditions
  • Clear, comprehensible test documentation

Drying, mixing, reacting: from test to scale-up

Series of tests performed on mobile trial units or in the Test Center ensure safe and cost-effective project planning – whether as an assurance test or for new product development.

The innovative BHS Test Center accommodates horizontal and vertical systems, thus facilitating a wide range of process variants for mixers, dryers and reactors. A vast range of devices and processes is supported, from helix systems to single-shaft mixers, from pressurized to vacuum designs, as a high-temperature or cooling process.

With experience and product expertise, our engineers support your test series and define the optimal process engineering system solution. The resulting data is written to disk and recorded in logs. A test report summarizes the findings, and the test results enter into the production machine as a scale-up.
