The purpose of this work is to examine the interplay between hydrodynamic conditions and physicochemical interactions from filtration experiments of microparticles. Experiments are performed in microfluidic filters with real-time visualization at pore scale. Both flow rate and pressure are measured with time to analyze the dynamics of pore clogging and(More)
In this paper, we examine the contributions of colloidal surface interaction in filtration processes. In a first part, we describe the way surface interactions affect the transport of colloidal particles or macromolecules towards a membrane, and its theoretical description. The concept of critical flux is introduced and linked to particle-membrane wall and(More)
Prediction of pore fouling by microparticles is still challenging and remains a difficult step to optimize membrane and filtration processes. The scientific issue consists in determining the relevant operation parameters controlling the capture of particles and the clogging of the filter. In this study, we have developed for a dead-end and cross-flow(More)
Critical fouling conditions were studied during wine cross-flow microfiltration using a multichannel ceramic membrane (0.2 mm). The aim was to determine critical operating conditions in order to limit fouling caused by wine colloids (tannins, pectin and mannoproteins) and enhance process performances. The method used is a square wave filtration based on the(More)
The way in which bacterial communities colonize flow in porous media is of importance, but basic knowledge on the dynamic of these phenomena is still missing. The aim of this work is to develop microfluidic experiments in order to progress in the understanding of bacteria capture in filters and membranes. PDMS microfluidic devices mimicking filtration(More)

A filtration procedure was developed to measure the reversibility of fouling during cross-flow filtration based on the square wave of applied pressure. The principle of this method, the apparatus required, and the associated mathematical relationships are detailed. This method allows for differentiating the reversible accumulation of matter on, and the(More)
The hydraulic resistance of cakes formed during the ultrafiltration of Streptomyces pristinaespiralis broths has been investigated for different harvesting conditions. S. pristinaespiralis broth was harvested after the point of microorganism activity declines (0-h aged broth) and afterwards held for different durations of up to 16 h (16 aged broths). Aging(More)
Development of membranes technologies led industrials and researchers to focus on the way to optimize filtration processes in terms of quality and costs of production. In this way, this paper presents a study about determination of low fouling operating conditions in dead-end ultrafiltration of natural organic matter which leads to the definition of(More)
Clogging of channels by complex systems such as mixtures of colloidal and biological particles is commonly encountered in different applications. In this work, we analyze and compare the clogging mechanisms and dynamics by pure and mixture suspensions of polystyrene latex particles and Escherichia coli by coupling fluorescent microscopic observation and(More)
