Comparative Study of the Flux of Filamentous Bulking MBR and Non-Bulking MBR
Under the same operating mode, the flux of non-bulking MBR（1#） descends much faster than the flux of filamentous bulking MBR（3#）, mainly because the particles adhered to membrane 1# become smaller much more quickly，provided that spherical particles tend to be rushed off into the mixed liquid more easily than filamentous particles. The falling of particles diameter is caused by the decline of flux, which can be interpreted with the formulation for critical diameter and flux as well as Critical Flux Theory.
