MEMBRANE INTEGRITY AND ITS EFFECTS ON DISINFECTION ABILITY AND PERFORMANCE
Abstract:Membrane processes offer a promising alternative to chemical disinfection since they provide a physical means to microbial contaminants that avoids formation of disinfection by-products (DBPs). Low-pressure membrane filtration processes, including ultrafiltration (UF) and microfiltration (MF), have been well established as a powerful disinfection and clarification process with a diverse application potential in the water industry. However, the effects of membrane integrity on disinfection ability and process performance have not been analyzed in detail, especially from results derived from full-scale testing and validation.
