Membrane Technology Service

We , the service team of BORSIG Membrane Technology GmbH, offer our customers in the oil and gas, refinery, tank farm and petrochemical industries a complete service package or individual services, so that you can fully focus on your core competence.

Our service team is trained according to SCC and VCA and consists of seasoned engineers and technicians who are in charge of plants and installations worldwide. Thanks to our many years of experience in servicing industrial plants and the required multidisciplinary competence in process engineering, plant design, control and instrumentation, as well as explosion protection, we know what matters.

We offer you reliability, economic efficiency and protection for your assets. We can perform or co-ordinate all services ourselves and are hence capable of making optimum use of synergies. The basic requirement for optimum plant efficiency and to avoid non-scheduled downtime is regular inspection and the check of all functions and installation parts subject to wear by competent experts. Innovative measuring and analysis methods help to avoid failures and breakdowns. Using software-supported systems for maintenance and service scheduling, we develop with you specific strategies for your particular application in order to establish perfectly timed and cost saving maintenance and service intervals. These made-to-measure concepts ensure that plant availability and productivity increase, environmental burdens become fewer, and maintenance costs drop significantly.

Over the years BORSIG Membrane Technology GmbH has developed many innovative processes which have now become standard in many areas of petrochemistry and emission protection. In many cases our standard solutions have been integrated into relevant engineering packages by licensors or adapted again to the specific project conditions before a licence is granted.

It is often also necessary to develop a customised process solution to take into account the specific requirements of the customers process. Knowledge of the usual customer processes is therefore very important for understanding the interactions of the membrane system within the complete process and for evaluating the feasibility of a project. 

Our staff has an excellent knowledge of the typical customer processes be it in the operation of storage terminals and refineries or the production of polymers on the basis of the broadest range of process licences. 

In order to provide our customers with the most efficient and economically attractive process concept for their applications, detailed evaluations with respect to process design and optimisation need to be carried out. The use of modern simulation programmes (e.g. Aspen HYSYS) in combination with our expertise in process and plant technology enable comprehensive optimisation of the overall process design. The simulation tools are an essential part of our project management allowing us to model the integration of the membrane separation unit into the client’s process and in combination with other unit operations.

BORSIG Membrane Technology GmbH offers a comprehensive service package and individual support to its customers allowing them to concentrate on their core competences and tasks. This also means that we undertake significant engineering tasks ourselves and therefore always retain control over the project. Each individual stage is co-ordinated by an experienced project manager.

Our engineering team comprises experienced, highly qualified engineers and technicians who combine their years of experience with the latest engineering tools and programmes. This begins with process simulation using advanced process simulation software and continues with the construction of individualised equipment resulting in a final 3D model of the system.

Our staff consistently furthers their training making us an up-to-date, competent partner in the areas of process technology, construction, and measurement and control technology, and for specialised topics such as explosion protection.

In addition to the design and supply of complete systems, we also offer our customers individual engineering services for both new and existing systems.

The process design for the main fields of application in the BORSIG Membrane Technology GmbH product portfolio is based on detailed process information and widespread experience in process evaluation and plant operation.

The characteristic parameters and optimal operating conditions for new applications with standard or newly developed membranes or client-specific processes are examined in our laboratories using professional test rigs. This enables us to determine membrane characteristics for each process and perform a thorough membrane screening prior to the design stage.

BORSIG Membrane Technology GmbH also possesses excellent expertise in the development and set-up of pilot and demonstration units and the operation of field tests. We offer comprehensive support in planning, operation and evaluation of pilot tests to our clients. Laboratory and field tests enable detailed process evaluation and determination of characteristic key figures as well as the optimisation of operating parameters as a design basis for the full-scale industrial process.

BORSIG Membrane Technology GmbH offers its customers in the oil and gas, refinery, tank farm and petrochemical industries complete service packages and individual services allowing to fully focus on their core competence.
We follow each unit’s lifecycle in order to provide the best feasible service and maintenance based on our worldwide experience.

We offer reliability, economic efficiency and protection for our customers assets. We can perform or co-ordinate all services ourselves and are hence capable of making optimum use of synergies. The basic requirement for optimum plant efficiency and the reduction of (non-scheduled) downtime is the regular inspection and functional check of all installation parts conducted by competent experts. Innovative measuring and analysis methods using software-supported and monitoring systems for fault analysis and maintenance and service scheduling help failures and breakdowns to be avoided. With these tools we are in the ideal situation to develop customised strategies with our clients for their particular application in order to establish timely service intervals for cost-saving maintenance. These made-to-measure concepts ensure that plant availability and productivity increase, and environ-
