Micro & Ultrafiltration

Microfiltration (MF) and ultrafiltration (UF) are advanced water filtration technologies that offer efficient removal of suspended solids, bacteria, and other contaminants from water. These filtration systems utilise porous membranes with varying pore sizes to effectively trap and remove particles, providing clean and safe water for various applications.

In MF and UF systems, the accumulation of organic foulants can impair membrane performance and reduce filtration efficiency. To address this challenge, specialised cleaning chemicals are utilised to remove severe organic foulants and restore membrane functionality. These cleaning chemicals are formulated to dissolve organic deposits, such as biofilm and organic matter, from MF and UF membranes, ensuring optimal filtration performance.

Cleaning chemicals also play a crucial role in the removal of carbonate and phosphate scales from MF and UF systems. These scales can form on membrane surfaces due to the presence of dissolved minerals in the feed water, compromising filtration efficiency. By applying cleaning chemicals specifically designed for scale removal, MF and UF systems can effectively dissolve and remove carbonate and phosphate scales, restoring membrane performance and prolonging system lifespan.

In addition to organic foulants and scale deposits, cleaning chemicals are also utilised to disperse inorganic particles that may accumulate on MF and UF membranes. These chemicals help prevent particle agglomeration and fouling, ensuring uninterrupted filtration and maintaining system efficiency.

Specifically designed cleaning chemicals are available for cleaning microfiltration and polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) microfiltration membranes, addressing the unique cleaning needs of these systems. These chemicals are formulated to effectively remove fouling and scale deposits without damaging membrane integrity, ensuring reliable and long-lasting filtration performance.

Overall, cleaning chemicals play a vital role in maintaining the efficiency and longevity of MF and UF water filtration systems. By effectively removing organic foulants, scale deposits, and inorganic particles, these chemicals help optimise filtration performance, ensure water quality, and prolong the lifespan of MF and UF membranes.
