This webinar explores fouling trends, and looks at the concepts of critical, threshold, and sustainable flux as design tools to minimize fouling through process design. A worked example will be presented for the calculation of sustainable flux from pilot data, and examples will be provided for calculated values of sustainable flux from case studies. Techniques for characterising fouling on plants will be described including permeability trend analysis and the concept of target permeability will be introduced. Case studies of the analysis of permeability trends will be presented from operational data for different applications. The content can be summarized as follows: • Fouling phenomena and fouling control procedures • Critical, threshold and sustainable flux • Permeability monitoring and control and target permeability • Case studies for surface water and seawater RO pre-treatment applications
