  • QMRA-based reliability analysis to assess the performance of an ultrafiltration plant

    In the drinking water treatment industry, it is becoming increasingly important to evaluate the reliability of different water treatment processes. This paper extends the use of quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA) as part of a reliability analysis, to assess the capacity of alternative water treatment technologies to minimize risk of microbial infection. The approach is demonstrated, in ...

  • Assessment of an ultrafiltration pre-treatment system for a seawater reverse osmosis plant

    The seawater reverse osmosis system requires extensive pre-treatment in order to ensure reliable performance. The conventional pre-treatment system involves dosing of chemicals, which requires frequent monitoring of raw water quality, and also involves adjusting the dosage. Besides being cumbersome, there is a lot of time lag involved in carrying out these measures. This calls for pre-treatment ...

  • Immersed Ultrafiltration Membranes for Treatment of Organically Laden Surfice Water

    ABSTRACT Ultrafiltration membranes are becoming increasingly prevalent in potable water treatment applications. This trend can be attributed to the improved cost effectiveness of membrane systems as compared to conventional treatment technologies and to progressively more stringent water quality regulations. In particular, increased awareness related to the formation of disinfection ...

  • Predictability of fouling-potential of raw water for ultrafiltration membranes

    The public drinking water supply of southern Germany is characterized by a rather decentralized network. Due to the hydrogeological setting in these parts of Germany many of the small water works with an average capacity of 50 m3/h have to treat raw water extracted from karstic or cliffy aquifers. These raw waters tend to be contaminated with particles and pathogens acquired during snowmelt or ...

  • Flotation outperforms sedimentation and ultrafiltration for turbidity and NOM removal at the drinking water treatment plant of Kluizen

    The drinking water plant of Kluizen treats surface water with high levels of organics and alkalinity. In the original plant, built in 1974, sludge blanket clarification followed by filtration was applied for floc removal. In 2008, the plant was extended with two additional treatment lines where flotation is used instead of sludge blanket clarification. Flotation-filtration proved to be very ...
