Comparison of membrane fouling at constant fl ux and constant transmembrane pressure conditions

  title={Comparison of membrane fouling at constant fl ux and constant transmembrane pressure conditions},
  author={Daniel J Miller and Sirirat Kasemset and Donald R. Paul and Benny D Freeman},
Membrane fouling is often characterized in the laboratory by flux decline experiments, where an increase in transport resistance due to accumulation of foulants on and/or in a membrane is manifested as a decrease in permeate flux with filtration time at fixed transmembrane pressure. However, many industrial microfiltration and ultrafiltration applications operate at constant permeate flux, and there are few reports comparing these modes of operation. In this study, emulsified oil fouling of… CONTINUE READING
