Membrane Filtration For The Treatment of Effluent

Axium Process designs and builds bespoke membrane filtration systems that are providing manufacturers with significant cost savings by reducing effluent volumes and disposal costs as well as recovering up to 95% pure water that can be reused in the process itself or for general cleaning duties depending upon the application.

Membrane filtration as a treatment for effluent is now being successfully used across a wide spectrum of industries as the technology can deliver a stable operation with consistent performance;  key requirements for factories intent on a secure 24/7 operation.  Where space is at a premium, manufacturers will also be interested to know that membrane systems only require a small footprint, can be easily scaled up at relatively low cost and have the potential for an almost closed loop operation.

CIP System Fabrication

Clean-in-Place Systems (CIP) are now an essential part of most hygienic manufacturing processes.  Axium Process specialises in:

  • Design, Build, Install, Commission and Technical Support
  • Custom built fully optimised Clean-in-Place (CIP) Systems
  • Fully automated standard CIP skids, complete with control panel, PLC and software
  • Pharmaceutical grade CIP systems complete with steam gear and heat exchanger
  • Mobile CIP Trolleys


Each system is developed by a dedicated project engineer who works closely with the customer to guarantee requirements are fully complied with in terms of design, procurement and manufacturing stages.  Every aspect of the plant’s design is fully optimised to safeguard plant hygiene and production efficiencies.

All Axium’s CIP systems are supplied with a comprehensive Installation & Operating Manual together with a full materials traceability dossier.

Axium has invested heavily in its inspection facilities and procedures to provide validation, testing and qualification to the highest levels.

Hygienic Stainless Steel Tube and Pipe Fittings

To complement our welding and fabrication services, we stock a comprehensive range of stainless steel tube and pipe fittings to accommodate a wide range of industries and applications.

Almost all our customers demand smooth bore pipework with a good internal surface finish. The elimination of crevice conditions and deadlegs, together with fabrication to minimise pressure losses and product hold up, are essential design constraints.

Our range of stainless steel tube and pipe fittings include:

  • Clamp
  • RJT
  • IDF
  • DIN
  • SMS
  • BSP
  • Plain-ended and Flanges

Hygienic Stainless Steel Fabrication

Hygienic engineering Design, fabrication and system solutions:

  • Hygienic Stainless Steel Fabrication
  • Hygienic engineering design and solutions
  • Customised Process filtration equipment and systems
  • Engineering drawing and modelling
  • Project management
  • Technical training and engineering support
  • Validation, testing, certification & traceability

Hygienic Stainless Steel Fabrication


Electropolishing is in effect electroplating in reverse. This process removes surface material, beginning with the high points within the microscopic surface texture. By removing these points, the electropolishing process will improve the surface finish of a metal such as stainless steel, nickel, aluminium and hastelloy© , leaving a smoother and more reflective surface.

  • Improved Surface Finish
  • Reduced Adhesion and ease of Cleaning
  • Increased resistance to corrosion
  • Microfinishing
  • Deburring

Stainless Steel Surface Finishing

Axium Process’ team of polishers are trained to provide the level of finish required by the pharmaceutical and biotech industries.

  • All polishing materials are certified free of animal derived products (TSE Free Certification available)
  • Finishes to 0.10µm Ra
  • Bead blasting, mirror and electropolishing options
