Microfiltration/Ultrafiltration Chemicals: Cleaning Chemicals

AWC MF/UF cleaning chemicals are proprietary formulations for extremely stubborn foulants.  While aggressive commodity chemicals such as bleach and caustic soda are commonly used with PVDF and PES membranes, they are not always effective at removing organic foulants.  AWC has created a full line of MF/UF cleaning chemicals to address the varying chemical tolerances of PVDF, PES, PAN, PP, and CA membranes.  All AWC cleaning chemicals are NSF approved for use in potable membrane systems.
  • AWC® UF-405
    Low pH powder membrane cleaning compound for dissolution of carbonate and phosphate scales from microfiltration and ultrafiltration surfaces and pores.
  • AWC® UF-425
    High strength powder formulation specifically designed to remove metal oxides from membrane surfaces and water softener resins.
  • AWC® UF-431
    Concentrated liquid formulation designed for use as a high pH cleaner of ultrafiltration and microfiltration membranes
  • AWC® UF-432
    Low pH MF/UF cleaning chemical for dissolution of carbonate and phosphate scales. Spent cleaning solution does not interfere with ferric or aluminum coagulation when sent to wastewater treatment.
  • AWC® UF-434
    Low pH membrane cleaning chemical for dissolution of carbonate and phosphate scales from microfiltration and ultrafiltration surfaces and pores.
  • AWC® UF-426
    Powder high pH membrane cleaner for microfiltration and ultrafiltration membranes that penetrates & lifts biofilms, organic foulants. Compatible with most polypropylene membranes.
  • AWC® UF-427
    High pH oxygenated powder formulation specifically designed for removal of heavy organic fouling from microfiltration and ultrafiltration surfaces and pores. Compatible with most PAN membranes.
