Wastewater Management: What You Need to Know to Clean Filter Membranes

We all know that keeping filter membranes clean is essential to maintaining effluent regulatory compliance and the proper flow of water in a water treatment facility and other industries. A dirty filter means trouble.

But cleaning filter membranes can be challenging. 

That’s where International Products Corporation’s (IPC’s) superior filter cleaners come in. Often copied but rarely equaled, our products return your flux rate to 100%, prolong filter life, and reduce downtime. Our cleaners are safe for the membrane and the environment, and easy to use.

What’s the Problem?

The problem is: your filter membranes get dirty. Most foulants are combinations of various soils—greases, oils, metals, hard-water salts, proteins, starches and more. And although commodity chemicals cost less, they only target one soil, and may have inconsistent quality.

So, do you need a different cleaner for each soil? It depends; but choosing the best formulated cleaner with multifunctional ingredients is the most effective solution.

Micro-90® is a unique chelating detergent that contains ionic and non-ionic ingredients that combine to produce a variety of cleaning actions. Micro-90® lifts, disperses, emulsifies, sequesters, suspends, and decomposes soils, then rinses away‬—leaving the surface absolutely clean. 

Micro® Green Clean is an industrial-strength, free-rinsing, biodegradable, multi-purpose cleaner, excellent for cleaning filter membranes as well as metals, ceramics, medical instruments, food-processing equipment, and other surfaces.

Micro® A07 is a powerful blend of chelating citric acid and anionic surfactants designed to remove salts, soap scum, metal oxides, hard water scale, grease, rust, milk stone, mineral deposits and inorganic material from filter membranes, labware and industrial equipment. Micro® A07 is non-corrosive and does not contain solvents, phosphates, silicates, phenols, or Substances of Very High Concern.

Zymit® Pro is a biodegradable, neutral-pH cleaner formulated with a unique blend of protease enzyme, surfactants, and builders that work together to remove tough protein-based soils. The enzymes dissolve the soils, and the detergents help lift and wash them away. Zymit® Pro is effective for cleaning filter membranes, metals, ceramics, plastics, medical instruments and devices, food processing equipment, and other surfaces.
