AbstractAn apparatus is described for the automated characterization of ultrafiltration membranes using solute permeation in cross flow mode. The automated characterization approach described in this work lends itself well for the purpose of increased productivity and reducing operator fatigue/error. The operational, control, and data acquisition aspects of an automated membrane cross flow test unit, which are accomplished using LabVIEW 5.0TM are described. The interpretation of the flux and separation data is independent of the apparatus and depends on the filtration regime and various theoretical models available. The apparatus can be used for reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, or ultrafiltration experiments, with appropriate selection of test cells and pumps.
