Micro-90 Extends Life of Filter Membranes for Wastewater Customer


Burlington, New Jersey, USA: The care and cleaning of filter membranes is essential to the success of any water treatment operation. International Products Corporation's Micro-90® is used to clean filter membranes safely and effectively, and often brings cost savings when compared to other cleaning methods.

One customer that treats the industrial wastewater generated by a major automotive manufacturer has had great success in using Micro-90. They treat up to 168,000 gallons of wastewater per day using an ultra filtration membrane system. Micro-90 removes the organics and metals that blind the membranes and has allowed the company to eliminate their previous two-step process that used caustic and acid materials.

According to the company's plant manager, "A 1% solution of Micro 90 allows a single cleaning cycle, which provides savings through reduced energy use, reduced chemical use, and less downtime. We achieve 100% recovery after every Micro-90 wash, and have yet to replace any of our membranes after six years of operation."

Micro-90 is a mild, yet powerful, alkaline cleaner that has long been used in laboratories, industrial applications, and critical cleaning processes. It is a unique detergent that contains ionic and non-ionic ingredients, which combine to produce a variety of cleaning actions. Micro-90 lifts, disperses, emulsifies, sequesters, suspends, and decomposes soils, then rinses away leaving the surface absolutely clean.

Other cleaners from International Products Corporation include: LF2100® Low-Foam Alkaline Cleaner; Micro® A07 Citric Acid Cleaner; Surface Cleanse/930® Neutral Cleaner; Zymit®, Low-Foam Enzyme Cleaner; and Zymit® Pro Enzyme Cleaner.
