Microfiltration and ultrafiltration have gained rapid acceptance as processes that provide a reliable and very high level of particle, turbidity, and microorganism removal. This manual contains information on low-pressure membranes in widely diverse applications, operations and system designs. It will help water operators, engineers, and management ensure the success of an installation.
Chapters cover topics such as water quality, membrane science and theory, system concepts, MF and UF membrane manufacturers, applications, pilot testing, design concepts, operations, cost, residuals management and future trends.
Unlike other publications on this topic that are intended to help facilitate regulatory compliance, this manual provides more detailed technical information and serves as a bridge between theoretical and real-world applications.
