Troubleshooting by Membrane Element Autopsy
By Robert Decker
Membrane element autopsy is a powerful troubleshooting tool. It is a destructive test that is often used to determine the reason for element failure and/or poor membrane unit performance. Are you cleaning your membrane unit(s) more than 4 to 6 times per year? Are your cleanings returning performance to new, or near-new levels? Are you able to get 3 to 5 years of life from your membrane elements? Optimized performance and peak efficiency are key factors to reducing the cost of water treatment and getting the most life out of equipment. When problems occur in a water treatment system, time is money. It is beneficial to correct the problems immediately and prevent the problem from spreading and becoming more complex throughout the treatment process. Membrane element autopsy excels at identifying the root cause(s) of complex problems and simplifies the troubleshooting process significantly. This leads to faster problem resolution and money saved.
