Ion Exchange Resin Disinfectant

ion exchange

The reason behind the development of micro-organisms in the ion exchange resin beds is the mixture of nutrients i.e. organic compounds and adequate temperature. To avoid such microbial contamination of the resin, regular disinfection should be done because this contamination has a negative effect on process operations. METHOD OF APPLICATION

Following ion exchange disinfection program* for resin with Chloramine-T is suggested:

1. To remove the impurities of resin, backwash it with the water, then drain the water. Disinfect Ion exchange resin: fill the column with 250ppm Chloramine-T solution and leave it for 10 hrs.

2. Then drain the solution. Chloramine-T residual should be present in the solution. If not, then repeat the disinfecting step.

3. Fill it with water and backwash it for 30 minutes. Measure the Chloramine-T residual level to control the rinsing efficacy in rinse-water.

(*) this procedure is valid for cationic resin types.
Water Disinfectant
