  • Reverse Osmosis Chemicals

    Reverse osmosis is an efficient way of purifying water but operational efficiency can only be obtained if the plant and in particular the membranes are not kept clean.  If this is not the case, membranes quickly become fouled result in lower output and ultimately resulting in the costly necessity of having to replace them.  Various products are available which have been developed to ...

  • Removing biofilm from membranes – a practical approach

    Abstract Within the lifetime of most reverse osmosis (RO) systems some fouling will adversely affect membrane performance.One of the major foulants identified on lead membranes during a decade of membrane autopsy at the Genesys Membrane laboratory is biological fouling (biofouling). All raw water sources contain microorganisms such as algae, bacteria and fungi. They also contain ...

  • Learning to Live With Biofilm: The Challenge of an Effective Biofilm Control Program

    The organism always wins. This is the challenge of biofilm control. Microbial biofouling and its root cause, biofilm, cannot be totally prevented, at least for a practical length of time in industrial settings. We have many approaches to keep it at bay but it will always be with us. In industrial water treatment, our goal is to keep biofouling  ...

  • Does your cooling tower have a biofouling problem?

    What’s growing in your tower? It’s important to be able to identify microbial biofouling in the industrial cooling systems that you treat. We know that biofouling is a bad thing … reducing the heat transfer performance of a cooling system, as well as causing microbially induced corrosion, harboring pathogens, and accumulating scale deposits. All these problems can ...

  • Biofilm Control for Industrial Waters

    Industrial operations can face a number of serious problems due to bacterial Biofilms growing in process water systems and cooling tower waters. Biofilm-induced corrosion, mechanical blockages and impedance of heat transfer processes result in huge monetary losses each year. In engineered systems, additional risks of biofilm-mediated contamination include negative public health consequences and ...

  • Ultrasonic technology in cooling towers

    Ultrasound technology is an effective and environmentally friendly method to minimise chemical consumption and improve the efficiency of a cooling tower, says Ander Paz Blazquez. Low-intensity ultrasound has been used for more than a decade in order to control algae and biofilm growth. Latest innovations have concluded that effective algae control is achieved through the use Ultrasound ...

  • Biofilm control strategies in industrial processing waters

    Bacterial biofilms cause a number of serious problems for industrial fluid processing operations. Mechanical blockages, impedance of heat transfer processes and microbially induced corrosion result in billions of dollars of losses each year. In engineered systems, such as cooling water systems, food processing, and other industrial applications possible risk to public health and product spoilage ...
