This presentation includes an overview of RO membrane fouling and scaling. It discusses biological, particulate, and inorganic fouling mechanisms and the chemistry driving scaling, antiscalant performance, and membrane cleaning. Complex interactions are discussed, including calcium bridging, chelating, and surfactant behavior.
