Oil-water separation, using a hydrophilic polysulfone-polyvinylpyrrolidone ultrafiltration membrane

Resumen
Inglés
Español
Ultrafiltration for the separation of oil-in-water micro-emulsions was investigated. Membrane fouling is the major problem in ultrafiltration (UF) system. The present work proposes the rotary spinning ultrafiltration membrane system for the treatment of oil-in-water micro-emulsions. The best results were obtained using the membrane 9 (4:18 polyvnylpyrrolidone:polisulfone) with water recovering of 85% with 1000 rpm and a flux velocity of 4553 L/m2d, and 56% of flux decline. The oil-in-water micro-emulsions were measured using a HATR-FTIR.
