Abstract Microfiltration (MF) seems to be a very attractive pretreatment technique that is increasingly being used in drinking water, seawater, and wastewater applications. Recently, it has been used as a pretreatment in reverse osmosis applications. This paper presents the results of a research project on the viability and the economics of MF as a pretreatment technique for a seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) system. The overall performance of the MF unit indicates that the SDI of the surface… CONTINUE READING
