Genesol 30 Membrane Biocide
Genesol 30 is a fast acting, broad-spectrum biocide used for cleaning Reverse Osmosis and Nano-Filtration membranes. It can be used both on and off-line to eliminate microbiological fouling. When used in potable water applications, Genesol 30 should be used 'off-line'.
Genesol 30 is also effective in removing biofilm from pumps, tanks and pipe-work. Best results are obtained when Genesol 30 is used at a pH 5.5 – 7.0. Residual Genesol 30 can be deactivated to harmless byproducts
by using sodium bisulphite. Genesol 30 is readily biodegradable in the environment; the degradation rate is enhanced at increasing pH and temperature
When used ‘off-line’ as a membrane cleaner, Genesol 30 should be dosed at 40 - 80mg/l for periods up to 60 minutes. Following use, the membranes should be flushed and cleaned using an alkaline detergent such as Genesol 40 or Genesol 703.
When used ‘on-line’ in non-potable applications Genesol 30 should be dosed at 100 - 200mg/l for 30 minutes. Pre-diluting Genesol 30 prior to use is not recommended as this will cause rapid degradation of the solution and loss of efficacy.
Health and Safety
Genesol 30 is based on an organo-bromine compound. It is corrosive to carbon steel and certain other alloys so all pumps, pipe-work and tanks should be made from acid resistant materials. A material safety data sheet is available on request.
CHIP: Harmful | UN: Corrosive
Available in 25 kg kegs, 250 kg drums and 1,200 kg IBCs. The shelf
