Field Pilot Studies

Demonstrate Effectiveness of Processes

Pilot tests conducted at numerous facilities demonstrate that Loprest treatment processes successfully reduce iron, manganese, arsenic, nitrate, and many other select contaminants in drinking water to well below the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL). Loprest can provide self-contained portable, free-standing pilot units or mobile, trailer-mounted units, depending on specific testing needs at each site. Services include unit delivery, setup, and operation. Upon completion of the pilot study, Loprest will prepare a Pilot Study Report and a detailed cost proposal for a full-scale system.

Purpose of the Pilot Study

  • Demonstrate the removal of the contaminant to comply with the MCL
  • Demonstrate the simplicity of operation of the Loprest treatment process
  • Complete piloting requirements for regulatory approval
  • Evaluate media performance

Loprest Pilot Program

  • Pilot unit is completely self-contained and ready to operate when it arrives on-site
  • Operator training will occur when pilot unit arrives
  • All necessary supplies and equipment will be provided with the pilot unit
  • Length of pilot test is typically 1 to 3 weeks
