Learning Objectives Membrane Separation
On completion of this chemistry course, a student should be able to:
- Describe, in membrane processes with two gas phases, the three resistances associated with the flux through a membrane
- Explain the differences between a symmetric and an asymmetric membrane
- Describe the three common types of equipment used for gas-permeation membrane processes
- Describe the four ideal flow patterns in a membrane separator and, for each respective model, solve numerically for the membrane area.
