Abstract

Hollow fiber membranes aerate wastewater without bubble formation by separating the liquid and gases phases with a semi-permeable membrane. These membranes have shown to successfully create aerobic conditions within a biological reactor. This research investigated the effect of long term usage and biofilm growth on membrane's ability to transfer oxygen to solution. Results show that oxygen transfer across the membrane decreased significantly compared to unused membranes in areas of high biofilm growth while low biofilm growth showed only slight decreases.
