  • Where we`ve been this year

    We've already attended a number of exhibitions around the world this year. At Water Arabia in Bahrain in February Genesys presented an update on the cleaning of biofilm and clay from fouled membranes using our unique Genesol 703 cleaner. A wonderfully colour co-ordinated David Golding was very busy on the stand at the well-attended event and meeting movers and shakers, including His Excellency ...

  • Micro-bubble cleaning

    Genesol 703, our high ionic strength powder cleaner, has rapidly become our biggest selling cleaning product. It is particularly effective against clay and biofilm, which are notoriously difficult to clean. The product uses a unique cleaning mechanism, disrupting layered biofilm and clay at the membrane surface. This occurs via normal osmosis of water, drawn by the high ionic strength of the ...

  • Genasol 21cellulose acetate cleaner

    Membrane manufacturers specify strict parameters for membrane cleaning chemical use, including pH and temperature. Extremes of alkalinity and temperature can result in hydrolysis of the cellulose acetate, or polyamide, rejection layer of a membrane. Cellulose acetate is extremely sensitive to pH, and most membrane manufacturers recommend a pH of between of 3 and 9 for cleaning. These limitations ...

  • How NoMonia Works to Treat or Remove Your Ammonia

    Most water utilities should have effective treatment methods for the filtration of arsenic, iron and manganese from drinking water sources. However, as ammonia becomes increasingly concentrated in groundwater throughout the U.S., many utilities around the country are searching for ways to successfully treat the contaminant, while also meeting U.S. Environmental Protection ...

  • ENEXIO SANIPACKING® fills reduce the risk of legionellae in wet cooling towers with open circuits

    Antimicrobial additive in the synthetic material Prevention of cell growth and of proliferation of bacteria Inhibition of the legionellae pneumophilia and Pseudomonas aeruginosa ENEXIO SANIPACKING® fills and drift eliminators reliably prevent the growth of bacteria and therefore contribute toward minimizing the risk of legionella infections. A synthetic material ...

  • Bleeding Money in Plain Sight

    Chillers represent over 15% of a typical building’s energy use, but chiller efficiency is curiously often ignored as an opportunity to improve efficiency—pouring money down the drain via undetected fouling-related inefficiency. Manual cleaning of chiller tubes has represented the status quo for decades for chiller maintenance, even though our modern ...
