Abstract

Significant benefits can be achieved through the optimization of full-scale MF/UF installations. Working in partnership, the Racine Water Utility, GE-ZENON and CDM have implemented an optimization program at Racine, WI has increased the capacity of the membrane system by reducing the duration of downtime activities and has identified potential cost saving strategies to lower total annual operating costs of the membrane system by more than 10%. Membrane treatment facilities in other locations would likely benefit from similar optimization investigations.
