Abstract :

The Ultra filtration membranes are used for treatment and reused of oily waste waters. The fouling of the ultra filtration membranes is caused due to inorganic and organic materials present in waste water that adhere to the surface and pores of the membranes and resulted in fouling and deterioration perforformance with increase in cost of energy and membranes replacement. In this experiment, Ultra filtration membranes fouling and cleaning were performed with oily waste water and selecting cleaning agents using laboratory scale cross flow membrane test unit. The result showed that the combination of cleaning agent that is metal chelating agent (Ethylene diamine tetraactetic acid) and an surfactant (sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and sodium hydroxide were able to clean fouled membranes very effectively than the individual cleaning agent. The flux recovery percentage was found to improve with increasing cross flow velocity, temperature, pH and concentration of the cleaning solutions.
