Why Genesys Reverse Osmosis Chemicals and RO Antiscalants Matter in your Plant?

Our Genesys Reverse osmosis chemicals are solely manufacture in UK facilities and these are special chemicals those are added upstream of a reverse osmosis membrane system. Genesys reverse osmosis chemicals are designed to prevent or slow-down mineral scale formation on the membrane surface. For this reason, the right antiscalant is critical for the consistent operation of a reverse osmosis system.

Mineral scale is formed when the dissolved minerals in water are allowed to concentrate to beyond their saturation limit, where they will start to come out of solution. Similar to water spots on a window, the water sprayed on the window appears clear but there are dissolved minerals in each drop. As that water evaporates the dissolved minerals stay behind and show themselves as a hard water spot.

RO Membrane Scaling

Prevention and removal

Nature of Feel Water of RO plants are not same always. All kinds of  RO Plant’s feed waters are different in types of composition. As a result, different types of scale can be deposited on the RO membranes. if you cannot select correct Genesys Antiscalant that will be used, you will not get perfect result. Selecting the right Reverse Osmosis Genesys Antiscalant and  Genesys Cleaning chemicals will optimize operating efficiency and help to prevent plant failure.

Scale SpeciesInformationAntiscalantCleaners
Calcium Carbonate is the most common scale found in membranes. Appears as an off white powder. Easily cleaned with a strong acid product.Genesys LFGenesol 37 and 38
Silica - can be present on a membrane as colloids, aluminosilicates on the lead membrane elements, or as scale on the final elements. Both forms are difficult to remove, being dependent on pH and temperature.Genesys SIGenesol 40 or 703, depending on colloidal or silica scale
Calcium sulphate (gypsum) - crystalline structure with very sharp blade-like features, which cut the membrane surface. Common occurrence in areas where there is a natural sulphate content in the underlying geology. This makes it very difficult to clean.Genesys CASGenesol 50, 34 and 703 Difficult to clean - ask us for advice on cleaning protocol design
Calcium phosphate - appears in many forms. Commonly found in RO membrane systems fed with waste water or agricultural leachate, due to the high phosphate loading.Genesys PHOGenesol 37 and 38
Magnesium hydroxide (brucite) - precipitates at high pH, above 9.5, in membrane systems. Can be found in second pass elevated pH brackish water boron rejection plants, where pH levels are increased above 9.5 with sodium hydroxide to aid boron rejection. Relatively rare.Genesys MGGenesol 37 and 38
Barium sulphate (barite) - appears as white crystals, which can take on-blade like formations. Very difficult to clean effectively.Genesys BSGenesol 50 and 34 Difficult to clean - ask us for advice on cleaning protocol design
Strontium sulphate (celestine) - appears as crystals or as needles, which can damage the membrane surface. Very difficult to remove.Genesys CASGenesol 50 and 34 Difficult to clean - ask us for advice on cleaning protocol design
