The quantity of cleaning chemical required for reverse osmosis membrane cleaning is dependent on the total system volume. A common mistake is to simply calculate the required amount of chemical based on the volume of the CIP tank; but the RO cleaning chemical is then diluted with water in the system piping resulting in a very weak CIP solution.

The RO CIP Chemical Calculator accounts for the CIP Tank, Cartridge Filter Vessels, Membrane Pressure Vessels, CIP Supply Piping and CIP Return Piping. Calculations are performed by allowing the user to enter known volumes or by calculating the volumes based on dimensions provided by the user. This allows for an accurate calculation of the required volume of CIP solution, and the calculator also provides the quantity of RO cleaning chemical that should be ordered for each membrane cleaning.
