In this chapter we have studied membrane separations including gas permeation, RO, UF and pervaporation. At the end of this chapter you should be able to satisfy the following objectives:
1. Explain the differences and similarities between the different membrane separation systems
2. For a perfectly mixed system with no concentration polarization, predict the performance of an existing membrane separation system and design a new membrane separation system using both analytical and graphical analysis procedures
3. Explain and analyze the effect of concentration polarization and include it in the design of perfectly mixed membrane separators
4. Explain and analyze the effect of gel formation and include it in the design ...
