Practical experience of backwashing with SWRO permeate for UF fouling control

Abstract:
Effectiveness of seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) permeate backwash on fouling control of seawater ultrafiltration was investigated at a pilot scale. A standard membrane module was used in this pilot to represent full-scale desalination plants. Results of the pilot show a good reproducibility. When the UF permeate was used for backwash, the frequency of chemically enhanced backwash (CEB) was around once per day. However, results of the pilot show that SWRO permeate backwashing could significantly reduce the CEB frequency. © 2013 Desalination Publications.
