We use it occasionally for general cleaning, removal of machining oils, cleaning for high vacuum use, and to lightly etch the oxides off of copper.  If we did a pre-mix and let it sit until use, how long would the formulations last before degrading? Could we also use this mix for washing microfiber towels and foam sponges that have various waxes, polymer sealants and oils on them?

RO Membrane Cleaning Best Practices

25 April 2018

Q: We are cleaning heavy scale compounds of Ca, Mg, carbonates, phosphates and organic matter from reverse osmosis (RO) membranes. Can you tell us some cleaning best practices and recommend a detergent? A.

If the organic matter is biologic in nature, we would recommend Tergazyme® Enzyme-Active Powdered Detergent which is both a powerful emulsifier along with protein enzymes. If the organic residue is more of an oily nature...
