Figure 5

Illustration of the clogging kinetics differences between the particles (left column) and the particle/bacteria mixture (two right columns) filtrations.

When comparing the first two columns (with a same time scale), it is possible to see that the clogging is leading to a dense deposit (for particles filtration) while almost no accumulation is observed for the mixture. It can be seen that the clogging kinetics is almost the same when comparing the first column for particles and the third column for the mixture (the time scale is augmented by 5).
