This paper presents a comparative performance evaluation of five different MF/UF hollow fiber membranes deployed as pre-treatment for RO systems in seawater desalination applications. Applying standard operating procedure, performance of the five membrane minimodules in terms of permeability and SDI were evaluated and compared. The study demonstrated that a standardized approach could be the future method of evaluating MF/UF membranes, which typically have different configurations.
