Membrane Cleaning and CIP
Membrane (RO, NF, UF, MF) Restorative Cleaning and standard CIP
Restorative membrane cleaning is designed to extend the life of membranes for many years, at a fraction of the cost of purchasing new membranes.
Membranes are designed to reject impurities while allowing water to filter through. Over time, debris can build up on the surface of the membranes, reducing their efficiency. This water flow may be a critical part of a water system or part of a manufacturing process, and reduced flow due to blockage will result in a loss of production.
When membranes have collected too much debris they become subject to fouling and scaling, and their performance deteriorates, resulting in higher operating pressures, poorer water quality, reduced output, and increased operating costs.
Continually replacing commercial membranes can become costly, highlighting the advantage of restorative cleaning over membrane replacement.
With over 30 years of experience in the field of water treatment and its related services, Integra are well versed in all types of membrane restorative cleaning and maintenance. Our skilled technicians can advise when cleaning is required as well as the desired frequency, to ensure that the membrane is operating efficiently and effectively.
Restorative membrane cleaning will extend the life and performance of equipment, and save on potentially expensive repair costs for years to come.
Integra provides reverse osmosis membrane cleaning to restore the membranes to a more efficient level of filtration. We offer a unique process that additionally provides a before and after analysis of the membrane, to illustrate what percentage of filtration flow has been restored and how many more times the filter may be cleaned before requiring replacements.
This information provides you with better monitoring of your RO system and helps you to budget for replacement membranes in advance.
This benefits you by helping you estimate replacement membranes for the future and reducing downtime repair costs.

Integra also offer CIP cleaning. Clean-in-place (CIP) is a method of cleaning the interior surfaces of pipes, vessels, process equipment, filters and associated fittings without disassembly.
CIP offers fast, repeatable, and effective cleaning without chemical exposure risk to people. This cleaning method is often utilised in industries that require high levels of hygiene such as dairy, beverage, processed foods, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics.
The benefit to industries that use CIP is that the cleaning is faster, less labour-intensive and more repeatable, and poses less of a chemical exposure risk.
