Abstract:The modeled membrane fouling mechanisms were validated through the reformulation of a semi-synthetic MWF designed to have greater microemulsion stability. It was experimentally verified that the new fluid did not see significant aggregation. Accordingly this fluid did not show evidence of significant flux decline. Functionality tests showed no difference in cooling and lubrication between the reformulated fluid and a commercial semi-synthetic MWF.
