An eye-opening exploration of membrane contactors from a group of industry leadersInMembrane Contactor Technology: Water Treatment, Food Processing, Gas Separation, and Carbon Capture,an expert team of researchers delivers an up-to-date and insightful explanation of membrane contactor technology, including transport phenomena, design aspects, and diverse process applications. The book also includes explorations of membrane synthesis, process, and module design, as well as rarely discussed process modeling and simulation techniques.
The authors discuss the technical and economic aspects of this increasingly important technology and examine the geometry, flow, energy and mass transport, and design aspects of membrane contactor modules. They also cover a wide range of application opportunities for this technology, from the materials sciences to process engineering.
Membrane Contactor Technologyalso includes:
A thorough introduction to the membrane contactor extraction process, including dispersion-free membrane extraction processes and supported liquid membrane processesComprehensive explorations of membrane transport theory, including discussions of diffusional mass and heat transfer modeling, as well as numerical modelingIn-depth examinations of module configuration and geometry, including design and flow configurationPractical discussions of modes or operation, including membrane distillation, osmotic evaporation, and forward osmosis
Perfect for process engineers, biotechnologists, water chemists, and membrane scientists,Membrane Contactor Technologyalso belongs in the libraries of chemical engineers, polymer chemists, and chemists working in the environmental industry.
