A detailed analysis of the membrane that can help to identify various causes of performance drop and action items to implement. It is like forensic analysis, help to identify culprit and gives useful recommendations. Its an effective way to increase operational performance and reduce the life cycle cost.
Plant owners and operators face constant pressure to save costs in terms of membrane replacements, consumables, energy and labour. Moreover, utilizing common system-oriented operating KPIs is not sufficient for driving sustainable optimisation. UF / NF / RO membrane elements are critical to plant performance yet their condition is largely unknown and only indirectly measurable, as operations do not allow inspection of the complex physical-chemical processes inside the elements. This lack of comprehensive UF / NF / RO membrane condition documentation is a major disadvantage when seeking to optimise plant performance and engaging with membrane, chemical and other component suppliers.
