  • Capital Cost Reduction – On site clean in place services do not require an extra set of expensive membranes in order to swap out membranes while one set is being cleaned. On site membrane cleaning removes this overhead cost.
  • Membrane Storage – On site clean in place services do not require the additional storage and logistical issues for warehousing and moving additional membranes between cleanings
  • Turnaround Time – For those clients utilizing offsite membrane cleaning services, the time it takes to remove the membranes, package them for shipment, transit time to the cleaning facility, actual cleaning time, transit time back to your facility, and reinstallation time can add up to weeks if not months. Membrane Services can come into your facility and have your membrane system back up and running in hours not weeks or months!
  • Quality Control – Many offsite membrane cleaning companies claim to have strict quality control to insure your membranes do not get mixed with other customers membranes, and that their instrumentation is calibrated, but how do you know for sure? When you hire Membrane Services to clean your membranes on site, your membranes never leave the vessel, much less the site. And since they are operating on site, you can oversee their operation and insure you are getting quality membrane cleaning services yourself.
  • Reporting - If you have ever waited weeks or even months to get the cleaning performance results back from your membrane cleaning supplier, you know how frustrating it can be. Especially if the membranes did not cleanup and you have already reinstalled them only to find they are just as bad as when you sent them off to be cleaned. While on site, Membrane Services will start up your membrane equipment to gather pre-cleaning data, take data during cleaning, and then provide post cleaning data once the job is completed. You will know immediately how the cleaning went!
