Abstract

The effects of pressure, concentration and feed temperature using a high pressure membrane filtration test rig capable of handling nanofiltration and reverse osmosis separation was investigated. The experimental results indicated that the applied pressure across the membrane has a significant positive influence on the flux produced and increasing the pressure will rupture the membrane if excessive force or pressure is applied. The high concentrations of solutes/molecules inhibit the flow of fluid through the membrane consequently lower fluxes and improved separation is and subsequently all variables, including their interactions, examined was found to be significant.
