Abstract:The design of membrane filtration systems is also influenced by the rate of contaminant build-up in the MWF. Microbiological population growth can grow to potentially hazardous levels in extremely short time-scales. Membrane filtration systems designed to control microbial populations must remove microbes from the MWF at a rate faster than population growth. A model is developed to relate microbiological parameters such as growth rate, yield, and substrate consumption to membrane filtration system design parameters. The model is used to determine if microbial growth control is possible for a given metalworking fluid, membrane filtration system, and membrane cleaning schedule.
