Abstract
THIS PHASE I PROGRAM IS DIRECTED TOWARD THE DEVELOPMENT OF A CHARGEENHANCED MICROFILTRATION MEMBRANE SYSTEM FOR REMOVAL OF SUSPENDED SOLIDS AND BIOLOGICAL MATERIALS FROM SEAWATER. THE PERFORMANCE OF THIS MEMBRANE WILL BE EVALUATED ON LIVE SEAWATER AT LOW PRESSURES TO DETERMINE ITS CAPABILITY FOR INCORPORATION INTO A NEW SPIRAL-WOUND ELEMENT DESIGN FOR USE IN THE SHIPBOARD PRETREATMENT OF SEAWATER TO PROVIDE AN IMPROVED FEEDWATER QUALITY FOR REVERSE OSMOSIS (RO) SYSTEMS. VARIOUS MODIFICATIONS OF THE MEMBRANE BY CHANGES IN THE FABRICATION TECHNIQUES WILL BE MADE AS REQUIRED UNTIL THE OBJECTIVES HAVE BEEN MET.
