Microclean UHP

Microclean UHP™ specifically designed to remove free-floating and biofilm bacteria from high purity water piping and storage tanks.

Microclean UHP™

Microclean UHP™ is a blend of quaternary ammonium cleaning compounds specifically formulated for complete removal of free-floating and biofilm associated bacteria from DI water loops. Microclean-UHP™ is more effective than hydrogen peroxide and formaldehyde. It is less corrosive to materials of construction (PVC, stainless steel, etc.) and is safer to handle than sodium hypochlorite, hydrogen peroxide, ozone, or formaldehyde. Microclean UHP™ is easily rinsed with no residual contamination problems.

Using Microclean UHP™.

Microclean UHP™ is made up as a 1 to 3% volume/volume solution using good quality water. The solution is then circulated or held in the piping and tanks for at least one hour. It is then flushed from the system.

To measure the strength of the diluted Microclean UHP™ use a MC-1 Working Level Test Kit.

MC-1 is a simple test strip for verifying that the correct dilution of Microclean UHP™ has been prepared. The test kit may also be used to ensure that the cleaning compound has reached point-of-use areas. Testing is performed by immersing approximately 2 inches of the test strip into the cleaning solutions for 30 seconds. The color of the test strip is then compared with that of the standard indicator strip.

To determine if Microclean UHP™ has been flushed out, use MC-2 Low Level Test Kit

The MC-2 low-level test kit is designed to indicate the presence of trace levels of Microclean UHP™ during the rinse procedure. The simple 3 minute procedure involves a simple titration followed by color comparison. The detection limit of the MC-2 low-level test kit is >1.0 ppm. Used in conjunction with total oxidizable carbon (TOC) resistivity tests, this kit may be used to verify that thorough rinsing of Microclean UHP™ from the purified water system has been completed.

Caution: Microclean UHP™ is not intended for cleaning DI resin or reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, and microfiltration membranes.
