Abstract

The mixture of oil with water from industrial activities creates an emulsion which is now termed as Oil-in-Water (O/W) emulsion. Several chemical and physical methods have been successfully used for the separation of O/W emulsions; however, the trace amounts of oil remain unfiltered in the separated water. This research aims at comparing two nanoparticles (Iron and Silver) coated ceramic membrane with self-cleaning ability for the effectively separation of low concentration ([less than] 250mg/L) of O/W Emulsion. Preliminary experiments have been done to determine the morphology and pure water flux of unmodified commercial ceramic membrane using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Energy Dispersive X-Ray Analysis (EDAX) and in-house installed separation rig respectively. An uneven pore size with a densely packed image from SEM indicates an increase in flux. Steady pure water permeate flux shows possibility of anti-fouling in ceramic membrane.
