Keep your reverse osmosis unit working effectively and prolong the life of your membranes with cleaning chemicals from US Water Systems. We carry antiscalant products to prevent the buildup of metal oxides and scale-forming minerals, antifoulants for feedwaters with high levels of silt and fine particulates, RO membrane cleaning chemicals for calcium carbonate and organics, and membrane preservatives for long or short-term storage. All of these chemicals are effective for RO membrane cleaning, and may be suitable for ultrafiltration (UF) systems and other types of membranes as well. If you have questions about cleaning chemicals, please call our Certified Water Specialists at 1-800-608-8792.
If your water has high levels of metal oxides, silica, and scale-forming minerals like calcium carbonate, you may need an antiscalant to prevent these contaminants from building up on your RO membrane. It helps control aluminum, iron, and heavy metal salts, does not flocculate dissolved polymers, and effectively controls inorganic scale. The Axeon antiscalant chemicals from US Water Systems are compatible with most reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, and ultrafiltration systems.
Antifoulant chemicals are designed to be used in systems where the water has high levels of silt, fine particles, colloids, and organics. They help prevent organic matter and colloids from forming a thickened mass and clogging up the membrane. These antifoulants can be used with antiscalant chemicals, and are suitable for use in RO, nanofiltration, and ultrafiltration systems.
While antiscalant and antifoulant products can prevent your system from becoming fouled with contaminants, RO membrane cleaning chemicals can remove foulants from your filter or membrane elements. US Water Systems offers two types of RO cleaning chemicals: one for low pH and one for high pH water. These RO cleaners will help prolong the life of your membrane and allow it to perform at its highest level. These chemicals are suitable for polyamide thin film, cellulose acetate, and ultrafiltration membranes.
Membrane preservatives help protect your RO membrane during short-term or long-term storage. These products can prevent microbiological growth within the membrane without the use of formaldehyde or other potentially dangerous chemicals. Our membrane preservative products are easy to use, simple to rinse, and compatible with all types of membranes.
