On completion of this chapter 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 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 solve numerically for the membrane area for each respective model.
In membrane processes with two gas phases and a solid membrane, similar equations can be written for the case illustrated in Fig. 24.8-lb. The equilibrium ...
