... quality water for long-term operation without any chemical cleanings during 4600 h operation thanks to the its high chlorine resistance and anti-biofouling tolerance. 1. Hollosep is a high chlorine resistance membrane which can present high quality and stable volume ratio of permeate water for a lon ...

Multiple hybridizations using quantum dot-DNA probes for rapid analysis of microbial community on reverse osmosis membrane
Special emphasis has recently laid on the biofouling on RO membrane surface for desalination process to provide a better insight into the microbial community composing of biofilms. However, i ...

... the plant. Since it started working, the main problem encountered in the Tan Tan demineralization plant was the continuous presence of a membrane biofouling problem which provokes high pressure drop values and requires an increased washing frequency, as often as twice a month. The diagnosis undertake ...
