journal contributionposted on 21.08.2009, 12:08 by E.S. Tarleton
In recent years 'assisted filtration' techniques have been receiving much attention. This paper describes how electric and ultrasound fields can be used to reduce fouling in microfiltration. Experimental data obtained over a range of operating conditions are presented that show both the effects of the individual fields and the synergistic effect of the combined fields. The parameters which control separation rate are identified and their individual contributions discussed.
