    • Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a compact process for the removal of ionic and organic pollutants from wastewater. However, flux decline and rejection deterioration due to concentration polarization and membrane fouling hinders the application of RO technology. Among various anti-fouling techniques, rotating filtration, which takes advantage of Taylor-Couette flow instabilities, has potential to the control of flux decline related to concentration polarization and membrane fouling...

    • Reverse Osmosis (RO) is an efficient process for the removal of ionic and organic pollutants from wastewater. However, flux decline and rejection deterioration due to concentration polarization and membrane fouling hinders the application of RO technology. Rotating RO takes advantage of high shear and the Taylor vortex instability to reduce the flux decline related to concentration polarization and membrane fouling. This process was investigated as a novel method for wastewater recovery. The mass transfer coefficient in rotating RO was experimentally determined based on film theory...

    • Reverse osmosis is a water purification process that removes 95-99% of most water contaminants including microorganisms, organic compounds, and dissolved inorganic compounds. Contaminant concentrations in municipal water supplies have wide seasonal fluctuations...
