Biofilm control agent for membrane systems.
Biofouling is one of the most critical issues Reverse Osmosis (RO) systems are facing, especially in system with high organic load like waste water recovery plants, sea water desalination plants or Food industry among others.
Kurita developed Kuriverter® IK-110, a biofilm control agent, which protects your plant from biological impact on your pre-treatment system and the membranes it selves.
Kuriverter® IK-110, the excellent biofilm control agent, is added to the raw water tank in order to protect the whole RO system against biofouling with only one product. The concept of water treatment becomes simple and it has a direct impact in the reduction of cleaning process and related costs for man power, chemicals and standby times, leading to a reduction of the total cost of operation.
When applying Kuriverter® IK-110 the differential pressure decreases, the loss of flux is reduced, and salt rejection improves.
The excellent results are proven by RO membrane autopsies confirming a significant decrease of biofouling on the RO membrane by the use of the new biofilm control agent.
Benefits include :
- Unique & patented technology
- NSF listed
- Reduces differential pressure across the membrane
- Reduces pumping energy requirement
- Restores and maintains permeate flow
- Reduces CIP cleaning frequency
- Reduces Total Cost of Operation
The new treatment can be considered as an effective way to suppress adhesion of microbes to the surface of RO membranes and to break away any adhering microbes and their metabolic products. Even in case of contaminated feed water and insufficient pre-treatment systems the problem solving ability of the new slime control agent is coming along without additional capital investment cost
