The role of fouling in optimizing direct-flow filtration module design

Abstract:

The local transmembrane pressure (TMP) distribution plays a crucial role in the performance of hollow-fibre microfiltration and ultrafiltration membrane devices. A direct-flow filter comprises an array of hollow fibres encased within a single module. The TMP in each hollow fibre is dependent on the spacing between neighbouring fibres, and evolves with time due to pore clogging by contaminants (fouling). We consider an idealized set-up in which the fibres are undeformable and equally spaced wi...
