Advanced Water Engineering, Inc. offers four main cleaners. We offer organic foulant cleaning, Scale cleaning, Silica cleaning, and biological cleaning and preservative. Our membrane cleaners incorporate a unique macromolecule-polymer complex (micelle polymer) that maintains the solubility of the foulant once it’s lifted from the membrane to prevent redeposition, and move the crystals out of the membrane system. This micelle reduces setback (residual foulant), provides a faster rinse procedure, and a longer-lasting cleaning. Our cleaners don’t just chemically and physically disperse the scale or foulant they chemically control it. Once the micelle breaks the bonds, foulants such as calcium sulfate can be lifted from the membrane. Other cleaner’s solubilize foulants without incorporating a macromolecule complex, thus allowing for precipitation onto the membrane surface that results in
residual fouling. Our cleaners prevent this re-deposition after contaminants have been solubilized.
We suspend, control and move the foulant away from the membrane, in other words, “everyone else sweeps, AWE, Inc. vacuums!”
Organic Foulants: Opticlean B
Scale Removal: Opticlean A
Silica Removal: Opticlean S

We have a complete trailer set-up for membrane cleaning for commercial, industrial and municipal membrane cleaning services and diagnosis. Typical cleaning can reduce feed pressures up to 30% while maintaining water quality.
We also provide on-site waste cleaner neutralization for on-site disposal or hauling. We can also dispose of the waste cleaners.
