Modeling and design optimization for pleated membrane filters

Abstract:

Pleated membrane filters, which offer larger surface area to volume ratios than unpleated membrane filters, are used in a wide variety of applications. However, the performance of the pleated filter, as characterized by a flux-throughput plot, indicates that the equivalent unpleated filter provides better performance under the same pressure drop. Earlier work (Sanaei & Cummings 2016) used a highly-simplified membrane model to investigate how the pleating effect and membrane geometry affec...
