MBR Klean series – Cleaning chemicals for MBR systems

We have developed a new range of cleaners that demonstrates superior cleaning results in MBR systems.

MBR Klean can be used on both external and submerged type MBR systems and is suitable for both back flush and cip. MBR Klean are moderate pH cleaners and is a blend of solubilizing and active cleaning ingredients, combining superior flux restoration, energy savings, lower quantities of chemicals to be handled and a safer working environment.

Specialized cleaning chemicals for MBR systems

MBR units operate under conditions that are very demanding for the membranes used.  There is a constant tendency for sludging that need to be controlled. 

The type of foulants found in the sludge and the fouling mechanism are very different from other membrane applications. The sludge can have a tendency to stick to the membranes making cleaning very difficult. To prevent the sludge from fouling the membranes and stick to the surface, air scouring is often used to create turbulence over the membrane surface. To some extent this will help to keep the sludge from sticking to the membranes.

Back flushing with either permeate or a cleaning solution is another initiative often used, where the type of membranes allow for it.

Products

Alkaline powder cleaner designed to remove fouling and sludge from MBR membrane surfaces. Provides effective cleaning improving sludging control, reducing energy consumption and prolonging system running time. Contains phosphates.

  • Effectively releases sludge from membrane surface.
  • Superior cleaning results with high flux recovery.

Moderate alkaline powder cleaner designed to remove fouling and sludge from MBR membrane surfaces. Similar to MBR KLEAN 212, but operates at lower pH and contains a reduced amount of phosphates.

  • Effectively releases sludge from membrane surface.
  • Superior cleaning results with high flux recovery.
