Membrane Cleaner Solutions
In the reverse osmosis (R.O) membrane, a physical process occurs. The raw water, after passing through the initial filters and pre-treatment, is driven by a pump into a shield containing the semipermeable membrane. Finally, exits almost pure water from one side of the membrane and concentrated water of the impurities on the other side.
Membrane consists of several layers wrapped around a central tube. The membrane acts as a filter which the solvent molecules pass through that, but impurity molecules cannot pass through membrane. When the scales are formed on the surface of the membranes, they reduce the outlet water flow or the quality of the outlet water decreases. As a result, after some time the membrane becomes clogged and needs to be cleaned. Acidic or alkaline solutions are used for periodic cleaning of membranes.
Abrizan Industrial Research Company producer of polymeric based antiscalants with a long background in the field of various types of reverse osmosis (R.O) water treatment, have been produced and marketed acidic & alkaline-based solutions for cleaning membranes.
|Description||Product name||Product code|
|RO system membrane cleaner with acidic pH||Acidic Membrane Cleaner||Mitreh CMA0150|
|RO system membrane cleaner with alkaline pH||Alkaline Membrane Cleaner||Mitreh CMB0251|
|RO system membrane cleaner with alkaline pH (with combined formulation)||Alkaline Membrane Cleaner||Mitreh CMB0253|
Membrane filter cleaning in reverse osmosis (R.O) systems is a trial and error. For example, if the water test contains inorganic substances such as iron or manganese, a solution should be used that capable of removing metals precipitate, so the use of Acidic membrane Cleaner code Mitreh CMA0150 is recommended. If the clog contains solids suspended in water, it indicates a biological contamination, and Mitreh CMB0251 or Mitreh CMB0253 alkaline Cleaner solution should be used to clean the membrane.
