Effect of shock loading on membrane fouling

Shock loadings can be divided by “hydraulic shock loading” and “organic shock loading” although shock loadings in real world occur as a combination of the two. The outcome of organic loading shock can be fairly different depending on how dissolved oxygen (DO) is managed during the shock loading. Variable organic loading with time can also affect membrane fouling.
