In this paper, fouling control in ultrafiltration for drinking water production is reviewed. Membrane fouling is the most biggest problem for operating membrane filtration and its efficiency. Fouling is formed by pore blocking, pore stricting, and cake formation. These fouling can be controled by pretreatments such as coagulation, adsorption, and preoxidation and regulating operational condition.
3. Application to research
- The way with non-electricity use & non-chemicals use such as biological treatment may be applied for appropriate technology related to waterborne disease.
