Ultrafiltration systems contain exceptionally fine membrane filters that need to be cleaned properly from time to time. The cleaning process is dependant on whether your system is being used to remove inorganic or organic particles or both. To remove organic contaminants, the membranes’ typical cleaning process is to use a low foam, medium-alkaline detergent with a concentration of .6% to 1% for between 40 and 60 minutes and no more. When cleaning inorganic contaminants, it’s best to use a citric acid at no more than a concentration of 3%. The acid should be left to circulate for 1 to 3 hours to get the membrane totally clean. If you’re uncomfortable with your UF system’s maintenance, or just don’t have the time, we also offer cleaning services to take the load off of you! If your system has not been appropriately maintained or is beginning to show it’s age, you may need repairs. Parts can break from wear and tear, and when this happens, your water isn’t being appropriately filtered any longer. Our company offers full repair services to keep your ultrafiltration system working at maximum capacity.
