2.1.3. Potential microbial growth: the effect of surfactant and ultrafiltration treatment of dishwashing water on E. coli
The current water recycling system has multiple barriers to remove microbial contaminants: zinc electrocoagulation, ultrafiltration, and chlorination. However, under specific circumstances in field operations (e.g., hot weather condition), it Difloxacin may not be easy to maintain the chlorine residuals required for bacterial control in the chlorinated holding tank. In this case, the presence of surfactants may inhibit bacterial growth, or cause their decay, during the event of the absence of free chlorine.
