Abstract (Swedish)
A full-scale inside out hollow fibre membrane module was operated in a pilot-scale water treatment
plant in Sweden for a period of 12 months from August 2013 to July 2014. Liquid chromatography–
organic carbon detection (LC-OCD) chromatogram indicated the membranes could effectively
remove 86% of dissolved organic carbon and 92% of humic substances from the feedwater. Routine
cleaning-in-place was conducted to remove any fouling material accumulated on the membranes.
Autopsy of the aged membrane samples after 12 months’ operation suggested no significant
changes were detected for the membrane samples obtained from the top, middle and bottom
sections of the membrane module and were similar to the virgin membrane... (More)
