Abstract

WITH THE DRINKING WATER INDUSTRY'S RAPID GROWTH IN THE POLYEMRIC MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY OVER THE FEW DECADES, THE CERAMIC MEMBRANE (CM) PROCESS IS A RAPIDLY EMERGING TECHNOLOGY DUE TO INHERENT ADVANTAGES I.E., CHEMICAL STABILITY AND STRUCTURAL RIGIDIDY, AND RECENT COST REDUCTION. FOULING IS THE GREATEST HURDLE IN MEMBRANE-BASED PROCESSES AND THE CM IS NO EXCEPTION. HOWEVER, THE PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE CM PROCESSES TREATING SURFACE WATERS ARE VIRTUALLY UNKNOWN. THE GOAL OF THIS STUDY IS TO ELUCIDATE THE MECHANISMS AND THEIR TRANSITIONS OF MF AND UF CM DURING THE FILTRATION OF MODEL COMPOUNDS AND SURFACE WATERS USING COMBINED PORE BLOCKING-CAKE FILTRATION MODEL, FILTRATION POWER LAW, AND RESISTANCE-IN-SERIES MODEL. THE RESULTS OF THIS STUDY ARE EXPECTED TO PROVIDE THE DRINKING WATER INDUSTRY WITH A BROAD RANGE OF GREATELY NEEDED INFORMATION ABOUT THE ISSUES RELATED TO APPLICATION OF CM FOR SURFACE WATER TREATMENT. 2011
