IWE CC1 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, IWE CC1 should be used ‘off-line’. IWE CC1 is also effective in removing biofilm from pumps, tanks and pipe-work. Best results are obtained when IWE CC1 is used at a pH 5.5 – 7.0. Residual IWE CC1 can be deactivated to harmless byproducts by using sodium bisulphite. IWE CC1 is readily biodegradable in the environment; the degradation rate is enhanced at increasing pH and temperature.
