Microfiltration enhancement by electrical and ultrasonic force fields

2009-09-30T13:02:07Z (GMT) by Steve Tarleton Richard J. Wakeman
‘Assisted’ filtration techniques are emerging as technical alternatives to conventional separations. Experimental data presented in this paper show how electric and ultrasonic fields can assist microfiltration by reducing the flux decline caused by membrane fouling. Effects of the fields acting individually and in combination are illustrated, together with the influence of other filtration parameters.
