Osmo Bev RO/UF/NF Membrane Change Out Services

Complete Water Solutions recently was awarded a contract with a Beverage Manufacture to replace their RO, UF, & NF filter elements. Complete Water Solutions was able to complete this work on a weekend (sunday) after hours to help minimize down time & production loss. We understand the importance of using Food Grade Products, including lubricants when installing new elements. We take extra per-cautions when working in Food, Beverage and pharmaceutical plants as we understand the extreme importance of cross contamination including allergens.

Before changing RO/UF/NF Membrane and filter elements we will take pre change data. Such data may include, Pressures, flows, conductivity (overall and each housing), turbidity, chlorine, hardness, iron, pH and more. This helps establish the current base line of the machines operating condition.

Also we will review the Daily Log which should include this data as well. (need a daily log? click here)

RO Daily Log

Next we will lock out & tag out the water treatment equipment. And begin to remove the end caps.
When removing the end caps we will replace the end cap o-rings during this time.
The membranes / elements will be visually inspected at this time and notes will be taken.
On this particular element change out we have pulled one filter element in the last housing to be autopsied. (learn more about membrane autopsy service)

 

 

 

Before installing the new membranes Complete Water Solutions log’s each serial number of each element and marks its installation location. This is done to help identify where the membrane is located and if there is to be a warranty claim we will no more about the operation of this filter element. (Membrane Warranty)

After installing the new filter elements Complete Water Solutions will start up the system and begin to take post start up data. Similar to the items tested and recorded prior to taking the system off line to change the membranes / elements will be completed again. This time Complete Water Solutions will fill out a RO start up sheet along with recording in the daily log.

What is a membrane autopsy?

A membrane autopsy helps identify the reason of performance loss.  The report will also provide recommendations or best course of action to help correct the problems that caused the failure. Also included in the report are recommended cleaners and procedures to help get the best recovery on your elements.

 

The autopsy services may include:

scaled ro membranes, industrial reverse osmosis, ro membrane scaling

OSMO-BEV-RO-FF

The elements that were replaced in this RO System were Osmo-Bev-RO-FF Membranes. These Membranes Are Specifically designed for Beverage and Bottled Water Production

The OSMO BEV membrane elements are engineered to provide beverage plants production water with a very high degree of total dissolved solids (TDS) removal, which is often required when producing purified water, very low and sodium free products, and carbonated soft drinks. The OSMO BEV Reverse Osmosis Membranes will produce treated water with lower levels of hardness, alkalinity, sodium and chloride, and is also the element of choice on high TDS feed-water streams.

OSMO-BEV-UF-FF

The elements that were replaced in this UF System were Osmo-Bev-UF-FF Elements. These Elements Are Specifically designed for Beverage and Bottled Water Production. The OSMO BEV UF element creates an absolute barrier to cryptosporidium, giardia, and re-jects color, and organics (naturally occurring tannins, humics, fulvics, etc.). The OSMO BEV UF element offers true multiple barrier security with the lowest energy consumption. It has a nominal MWCO of 6,000Da
