In this paper, an equation for permeate rates associated with dead-end filtration is shown to be applicable to a pilot scale study of an ultrafiltration process being designed and built at the Hanford Department of Energy facility. This permeate rate equation was utilized in mass balance equations for mass of solids and sodium within the system, and forms the basis for design curves to determine the minimal membrane surface area for a prescribed treatment time and other conditions.
