Abstract

The datasets represent ultrafiltration (UF) operation, for pre-treatment of seawater RO feedwater, over a total period of 422 days.  The operational data for UF filtration and backwash were obtained in a field study at Port Hueneme (CA) over a wide range of water quality conditions and coagulant dose. The data were utilized to develop a machine learning model for UF membrane resistance and backwash efficiency.

Methods

Data of ultrafiltration UF performance (during both filtration and backwash) were collected over a 4-year field study of seawater desalination with UF feedwater pretreatment.  

Usage Notes

The data includes a series of datasets for both short-term and long-term UF operational periods. Performance data includes the following variables:

- Microfilter pressure driving force
- UF transmembrane pressure during filtration
- UF transmembrane pressure during backwash
- Initial UF membrane resistance
- UF Coagulant dose 
- UF feedwater turbidity
- Filtrate temperature
- UF backwash duration
- Filtrate pH
- Chlorophyll a (RFU) of feedwater
- UF Backwash flux
- Operation time
