An Efficient, Simple, and Cost-Effective way to Clean Membrane Diffusers

August 9, 2021

Rising head pressure due to sedimentation of mineral/biological scale on the membrane surface is an occurrence that every membrane diffuser system on the market is confronted with.

Whilst this problem is easy to ignore, eventually the head pressure will increase to a point where damage to your membrane diffuser is imminent resulting in two scenarios that are detrimental to the performance and general operation of the plant:

  1. An increased power demand due to extended aeration cycles
  2. Insufficient blower capacity to reach DO target.

Fortunately, Hydroflux offer an effective and simple-to-use portable chemical CIP unit to clean all types of membrane diffusers. This unit is designed to inject a suitable cleaning acid into the air piping system, helping to release scale built up on the membrane surface.

The unit supplied is ready to operate and comprises
Stainless steel cabinet

  • High quality Prominent dosing pump – capable of pumping up to 7.5 L/hr
  • Suction line with weight
  • Dosing line with injection spray nozzle to suit ½” fitting.
  • Pressure return line
  • Filter unit with cartridge
  • Isolation valves
  • Instruction manuals

Service requirements
The system requires a 240V AC standard AU power socket.
