The suite of crossflow, pressure-driven membrane separation technologies are arguably the most versatile technologies for the separation of solids (suspended and dissolved) from water. These technologies include microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration and reverse osmosis.
The technologies utilize pressure to provide the energy to effect separation, and by operating in a continuous flow mode, they offer a potentially lower operating cost over other separation processes.
This presentation will include an introduction to the four technologies but will emphasize reverse osmosis which provides the most complete separation.

The course outline:
1) Technology introductions
2) Definition of terms
3) Membrane properties
4) Membrane device configurations
5) System design details
6) Fouling issues and mitigation
7) Cleaning
8) Pretreatment

Who Should Attend?
This course is directed to those in technical sales and/or management who wish to learn more about these technologies. It is also appropriate for plant and environmental engineers interested in gaining a technical understanding of how membrane technologies may play a role in their facilities.
