Designing a membrane plant with the right parameters ensures that finished water production and water quality goals are achieved while minimizing unforeseen, premature and costly membrane module replacements. However, even with pilot testing, it is challenging to predict the impacts of seasonal or long term changes in raw water quality and the effects of upstream processes. A plant may require process evaluations and changes to ensure that the design intent is achieved. This paper will focus on evaluations and optimization work that was performed at two UF plants.
