Abstract:

THIS TECHNICAL PROPOSAL PRESENTS NEW CONCEPTS IN DESIGN AND OPERATIONS WHICH MAY BE APPLIED TO THE RESTORATION OF REVERSE OSMOSIS (RO) MEMBRANES AFTER USE. THE PROPOSED SBIR PHASE I RESEARCH WILL BE CARRIED ON IN TWO PARTS. PART I WILL INCLUDE THE INVESTIGATION OF INNOVATIVE CHANGES IN SPACER DESIGN TO DETERMINE MODIFICATIONS TO THIS FEATURE OF SPIRAL WOUND MEMBRANES TO REDUCE FOULING TENDENCIES. PART II WILL BE TO APPLY PROVEN TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES IN THE USE OF ULTRASONIC VIBRATIONS IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE INNOVATIVE SPACER MODIFICATIONS TO CONFIGURATIONS OF THE REVERSE OSMOSIS MULTI-ELEMENT MODULE (ROMEM) DESIGN. THE PURPOSE WILL BE TO FIND THE MOST EFFECTIVE CONFIGURATION FOR CLEANING AND TO QUANTITATIVELY EVALUATE THE EFFICIENCY OF VARIOUS CLEANING PROTOCOLS.
