ORG Clean MC 103 (Membrane Cleaner) Liquid is a low pH, formulated specifically to remove metal hydroxides, calcium carbonate, and other similiar scales from reverse osmosis (RO), nanofiltration (NF), microfiltration (MF) and ultrafiltration (UF) membranes. This highly effective product provides superior cleaning resulting in longer system running time.
Acidic powerfull cleaner, non-foaming (pH1.6).

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS ::: 25 to 38 Grams per Ltr of Water, Solution can be heated to increase cleaning effect.
During the operation of a membrane separation system, dissolved solids in the incoming water can concentrate up to a level where they begin to precipitate on the membrane surface. Scaling from hardness and metal salts found in most unsoftened water supplies impedes the flow of water through the membrane. This can result in unacceptably low production, high operating pressure, or an excessive pressure drop in the system, which may lead to irreversible membrane damage. Additionally, the accumulation of scale next to the membrane surface can increase the amount of dissolved material passing through the membrane, resulting in product water of unacceptable quality. Before the scale accumulates to a level where product water declines, or membrane damage can occur, it should be removed through clean-in-place (CIP), off-line cleaning. Indications of
the need for cleaning include a significant decrease in normalized permeate flow, a significant increase in pressure drop across the system (or individual stage), or an increase in the normalized salt passage, so that product quality is unacceptable. Your RX MARINE representative can assist you with monitoring your system and determining when cleaning is advised.
ORG Clean MC 103 (Membrane Cleaner) contains a blend of solubilizing and complexing agents designed to specifically remove calcium carbonate and metal hydroxide-based scales from the surfaces of a membrane. Used in tandem with an alkaline cleaner for organics and particulate removal, regular cleanings with ORG Clean MC 103 (Membrane Cleaner) helps to preserve the life of your membranes. Depending on the nature of the fouling, a soak period may be necessary for optimum results. Consult your RX MARINE for details.
Feed System - This product should be used in conjunction with membrane cleaning equipment supplied by the manufacturer of the membrane system. If such a system is not present, contact your RX MARINE representative for information on fabricating or obtaining a cleaning system.
Dilution - The product must be diluted prior to introduction into the membrane system. The recommended dilution for this product is one pound (0.45 kg) of ORG Clean MC 103 (Membrane Cleaner) per 5 gallons (19 L) of water (approximately one gallon [3.8 L] of ORG Clean MC 103 (Membrane Cleaner) for each 50 gallons [189 L] of water).
Materials Compatibility - Corrosion-resistant equipment, such as PVC, should be used for the storage and preparation of this product. Pumping materials coming in contact with concentrated or diluted products should also be corrosion resistant.

GENERAL CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
The following general cleaning procedure can be followed. For the optimum cleaning procedure for your system, contact your BetzDearborn representative.
A Material Safety Data Sheet containing detailed information about this product is available upon request.
ORG Clean MC 103 Membrane Cleaner is suitable for use with all polyamide, polysulfone and thin film, composite membranes. During uses of membrane cleaning chemicals always be remember that In cases of heavy fouling, the first return flow should be drain out side, not in a circulation tank, this will helps to prevent redeposition of removed solids. In multi-pass systems, best results will be achieved if each pass is cleaned separately.
The solution should be discarded if it becomes turbid or discolored by removed material. A fresh solution should then be prepared before cleaning additional passes.
