Contents:
Introduction -- Clarification of citrus fruit juice -- Separation and fractionation of protein solution -- Electric field assisted micellar enhanced ultrafiltration.
Summary: "The membrane separation process has emerged as a powerful separation technique and has become an integral part of modern process industries. This has found wide applications in the field of biotechnology, beverage, dairy industry, clarification of fruit juice, waste water treatment etc. The advantages of these processes are their unique separation capabilities, low energy consumption, high throughput, and ease of scaling etc., compared to conventional separation processes. However, the application of membrane separation process has been limited by the presence of concentration polarization and membrane fouling. These lead to decline in permeate flux and change in retention behaviour. Therefore, the ways to reduce concentration polarization and thereby enhancing the filtration rate are currently active areas of research in view of the increasing demand of membranes application to various industrial separation processes. To minimize the membrane fouling and concentration polarization, several techniques have been investigated. In this regard, application of external d.c. (direct current) electric field across the membrane is a promising method to reduce concentration polarization and fouling. This book deals with the relevant principles, technology and the theoretical details involved in this process."--Publisher's description.
