In this paper a new dimension is given to the concept of membrane fouling. In the already known fouling mechanisms for dead-end operated capillary ultra-filtration membranes fouling is considered a radial phenomenon (pore blocking, cake filtration). However, fouling also appears to have longitudinal effects.
