New Solutions for Membrane Cleaning in the Food & Beverage Industry

BASF offers a wide range of products for membrane cleaning. On the basis of in-depth research, it was demonstrated that suitable nonionic surfactants for membrane cleaning do exist. This refutes the general assumption that they are unsuitable for this purpose. Even low-foaming nonionic surfactants showed significant advantages.

Compared with current market standards, these products offer several advantages, such as:

  • Better and faster cleaning
  • Low-foaming
  • Readily biodegradable
  • Low aquatic toxicity
  • Good compatibility with enzymes

Efficient Solutions for Membrane Cleaning

  • Wide range of suitable surfactants for membrane cleaning. Preferred surfactants are Plurafac® LF 900 and Lutensol® XL 60.
  • Trilon® M as superior chelating agent which is readily biodegradable.
  • For acidic membrane cleaning, BASF offers Lutropur® M as powerful, readily biodegradable acid with outstanding solubility of its salts and low vapor pressure.
