About this book

Introduction

Here is the first book devoted completely to inorganic membrane separations and applications. It provides detailed information on all aspects of the development and utilization of both commercial and developmental inorganic membranes and membrane-based processes, pointing out their key advantages and limitations as separation tools. Characteristics, technological advances, and future applications of inorganic membranes are discussed in depth. An overview of the origins of these membranes provides a basis for understanding emerging technologies in the field. Coverage of thermal, chemical, surface, and mechanical properties of inorganic membranes includes discussion of pore diameter, thickness, and membrane morphology. You'll gain valuable insights into membrane modification, as well as the design and operation of membrane filtration units. Also included are sections on how to analyze mechanisms that affect flux feature models for prediction of micro- and ultrafiltration flux that help you minimize flux decline. Descriptions of cross-flow membrane filtration and common operating configurations clarify the influence of important operating parameters on system performance. Parameters influencing solute retention properties during ultrafiltration are identified and discussed or treated in detail.
