Abstract

The application of corrugations as turbulence promoters in membrane filtration was studied. In ultrafiltration experiments with polysulfone membranes using Dextran T70 as solute, it was found that the corrugations result in reduced energy consumption or pressure drop compared with flat membranes at a given value of the flux through the membrane. There appears to be an optimal mutual distance between the corrugations.
