Membrane Cleaning

The building blocks of CCL Pentasol as a company were its expertise in the field of Membrane Cleaning, an area where the company still retains its market lead. The technology of Membrane Cleaning is based not only on the formulation of its products but on the understanding of the chemical nature of the membrane fouling. It is essential to understand what is fouling the process, how the soil is building and also when and how to clean. The pin pointing of the type of soil (e.g. colloidal, biological, organic or inorganic) and the method of fouling (precipitation, absorption, adsorption) is important to the success of the clean and the preservation of the membrane. The experience and skill in Membrane Cleaning is a strength which CCL Pentasol has acquired over many years and contributes to their on-going success in this field. The range of chemicals is comprehensive and includes:

MICROCHLOR

A liquid chlorinated alkaline cleaner for UF and MF systems especially useful in peptising protein soils.

MICROCLEAN LNP-100

A specially formulated alkaline product for in-place cleaning of TFC membranes in reverse osmosis, NF systems and polysulphone membranes in UF systems.

MICROCLEAR

A product designed to deep clean TFC membranes in RO, UF and NF systems. It is excellent for removing cheese whey soils.

MICRODET

A chelated, liquid alkaline cleaner for UF and MF units.

MICROLOX 50

A very effective liquid acid cleaner for membranes which has proved more effective than traditional citric acid based formulations. It is low foaming and very cost effective.

MICROQUEST A

A liquid enzyme cleaner developed for cleaning TFC membranes in RO, UF and NF systems. It is highly concentrated and very cost effective. Used in conjunction with MICROQUEST B for optimum enzyme function.

MICROSAN L

A non-metabisulphite membrane preservative developed for yeast control in membrane systems. The product provides maximum activity against yeasts ensuring no damage to the membranes.

MICROSOAK L

A metabisulphite based yeast control product for use in RO, UF and UO systems.

MICROWET A, MICROWET N and MICROWET N(I)

A series of detergent additives for improving the performance of Membrane cleaning. The products are designed to improve detergency and emulsification of fatty soiling.

MICROBOOST

A non-toxic solvent based emulsifying agent used in conjunction with surfactant systems and alkaline products to aid in the dispersal of oils and fats.
