Membrane Biofouling Mitigation through Applying Electric Potential in the CF016 Cell

Membrane filtration is an effective way to remove pollutants and microorganisms from water and wastewater. However, membrane fouling lowers efficiency over time when considering rejection values and water flux. Fouling is typically biological or particulate; fouling rate is a function of the membrane pore size relative to the size of the foulants and also the interactions between the membrane and...

Focus on Microfiltration Part 3: Extending Service Life Using Prefiltration

Last month we examined filter selection strategies for maximizing service life in continuous use applications. In this 3rd installment, we will examine the use of prefilters to extend service life. Clarifying liquids with high levels of suspended solids is challenging, especially for applications requiring submicron filtration. In these applications, filter users who experience frustratingly...

Launching Aquapad Aboard the International Space Station (ISS)

Did you know that the potable water on board the International Space Station (ISS) is up to 80% recycled from astronauts' sweat, urine and other reclaimed wastewater sources? This means bacteria testing to monitor the quality of the recycled water is frequently required to ensure astronauts' health and safety of consumption. Traditional test methods for bacteria testing can be timely, and...

Working on a Love/Hate Relationship with the Surface Chemistry of Membrane Filters

Water, oils, and solvents sometimes need to be filtered. But when you see filters labeled as hydrophilic, hydrophobic, and now oleophobic; what does all this mean? Sterlitech currently offers membrane disc and sheet filters in 10 different polymer types and 4 inorganic filters. 2 of the polymer types are subdivided into 4 subgroups based on surface chemistry alone. Filters listed as hydrophilic,...
