Destructive membrane autopsies are a highly effective tool for troubleshooting membrane systems. Key parts of an autopsy include pre-testing, visual inspection, and foulant identification. Foulant analysis includes numerous tests that can properly identify main constituents found on the membrane surface. Based on autopsy findings, system changes can be made to rectify operational issues.
