Abstract

This research evaluated various available methods for measurement of membrane characteristics, inuding surface roughness, charge, and liquid-membrane contact angle, in order to (1) determine the effect of measurement procedure on the variability of resulting measurements and (2) give utilities information on the value of such methods, means to compare membrane properties on an equal basis, and guidance for accurate contact angle measurements for integrity test calculations.
