Cleaning Procedure

Listed below, some standard cleaning procedures.

  • Follow the membrane manufacturers’ recommended guidelines for pH, temperature and contact time.
  • Flush with permeate for 5-10 minutes to remove any service concentrate and feedwater foulants;
  • Prepare cleaning solution: Soft acid cleaning : 1-5% CMC 5080. Adjust pH gradually with Ammonia if necessary;
  • Circulate about 20 minutes at 30-35ºC or 30 minutes at 20-25ºC;
  • Soak of 1-2 hours for light scale. Extend soak time for highly scaled systems. Elements should be soaked individually outside of the pressure vessel in a vertical position. Check pH and adjust as required, or replace cleaning solution.
  • Drain the cleaning solution to disposal tank;
  • Flush with permeate for 5-10 minutes, make sure all chemicals are flushed out;
  • Restart the RO-production and reject the permeate for process until the necessary quality is reached. Measure after 1 hour the operating parameters to evaluate cleaning efficiency.
