Abstract

An important issue which has received very little attention in the design of deionized water polishing loops is the optimum sequencing of membrane filters with the UV treatment units. The primary objective of this paper was to investigate the interactions between UV 185 treatment and filtration through membranes. In general, the sequencing of various units in the polishing loop is an important factor in developing optimum strategies for toxic organic compound (TOC) removal. The results of this study indicate that under most conditions TOC can be removed more effectively if the filter is placed before the UV unit.
