New AFS Short Course: Membrane Fouling and Cleaning

The AFS is presenting a new short course, “Membrane Fouling and Cleaning,” which will be taught by industry veteran Peter Cartwright.

Plant operators often deal with expensive elements fouling prematurely, creating additional maintenance expenses. This course will provide an understanding of the mechanisms of fouling of crossflow, pressure-driven membrane elements. Attendees will learn numerous strategies for minimizing fouling and cleaning membranes.

The course is designed for membrane system designers, operators and plant engineering personnel and will cover:

  • Fouling mechanisms and measurements
  • Consequences of fouling
  • Mitigation strategies
  • Cleaning options
  • Performance monitoring

The course will be presented live online on Tuesday, June 8, from 9am to 11am central.
