Membrane Separations

Membrane separation operations are still seldom used in refining today. The potential applications of the different ultrafiltration, pervaporation and gaseous permeation technologies are described in the other section. Since selectiv­ity is kinetic, a membrane separation module separates a mixture into … Continue reading

Membrane Separation

Separation can also be based on kinetic selectivity, i.e. on a difference in migration velocity of the relevant components. This principle is used in a membrane separation operation as represented schematically in Figure 1.5 for a binary mixture of two … Continue reading
