40 years in purification and extraction processes in the industrial biotechnology industries
Our expertise lies in bringing together different extraction and purification technologies and in the optimization and follow-up of such combined processes. In total, we have designed, built and commissioned over 1,000 purification systems.
Our After Sales Service Solutions for your Purification Equipment and Systems
Extensive technical support services to answer your questions in a timely manner
Our customer service teams in France, USA & China provide on-going technical assistance and are dedicated to addressing your challenges, when and where you need it.
We understand your concerns because we design and use our own technologies. You will receive prompt and courteous service thanks to our local teams!
Technical expertise with on-site auditing to reduce costs and guarantee optimum performance
Our customer service team strives to offer you customized solutions by selecting the most cost-effective equipment; improving and optimizing the throughput of new or existing equipment; reducing operating costs; and guaranteeing optimum performance.
Training to maintain constant and optimum throughput
Optimum performance is achieved with well-trained operators for all the different purification steps. Our experienced technical staff provides tailor-made, on-site training to make sure you are well prepared to take the appropriate corrective action should any process deviation occur.
Spare parts and consumables to maintain productivity with minimum downtime.
We maintain an inventory of standard parts to ensure quick delivery. We select the best cost/performance spare parts through an in-house laboratory evaluation in accordance with international industry standards which are applicable to the industrial biotech industry.
The main spare parts and consumables include:
- column internals such as distributors, nozzles, …
- membrane housing parts such as gaskets, fittings,…
- process instruments/parts such as valves, pumps, pH meters, …
- cross-flow filtration membranes
- a large range of ion exchange resins, adsorbents and packing polymers.
Expertise and consumable optimization to improve performance
We design, build, operate and service a wide range of equipment worldwide for our customers’ process lines. A maintenance contract is a very cost-effective means to ensure a timely delivery of products. The main consumables are:
Applexion® XA resins have been subject to laboratory and pilot plant evaluation; they have been selected from reputed manufacturers, and are tailored to meet Novasep’s strict specifications. An exact understanding of their industrial performance allows us to offer the most adapted grade for each application to provide peak performance!
Novasep has developed Kerasep®, the most comprehensive range of high performance ceramic membranes for micro and ultrafiltration. We also recommend select organic membranes from other suppliers when applicable.
In order to achieve smooth operations and a long product lifetime, regular cleanings are sometimes necessary with specific chemicals. Our technical team determines the best operating conditions and products.
The A.S.A.P. team, in collaboration with our analytical laboratories, carries out a detailed resin and membrane analysis. The regular monitoring of the resin and membrane properties (optical aspect, capacity, fouling index, electronic microscopy, etc.) is key in anticipating any discrepancies with the process parameters. The resulting recommendations allow any corrective action to be taken as well as any upgrade or replacement to be budgeted. When ion exchange resins or membranes start to wear, the result is shorter production runs and excessive regenerant and water consumption; thus increased operating costs. Monitoring their aging pattern allows an optimum replacement program to be implemented.
Service contract for increased reliability
We provide service contracts to optimize the productivity and lifetime of your process line:
- Preventive maintenance:
Our teams plan and perform periodic preventive maintenance to replace parts subject to wear and tear. Our service contracts are flexible and may include: operating process modifications; equipment upgrades; possible modifications of base engineering; a well planned supply of ion exchange resins, carbon and/or membranes; as well as a chemicals savings and gain sharing program.
- Corrective maintenance:
Our qualified personnel performs troubleshooting at your site to maximize system utilization. A detailed report is issued listing all possible corrective actions with their expected cost and performance expectation. Maximum response time can be included in our contracts.
- Periodic testing:
Our team performs periodic testing and conclusions are provided in a detailed and comprehensive report.
As both a supplier and end-user of purification technologies, we provide you with unparalleled expertise to optimize your process!
