Direct contact membrane distillation: analysis and application

Abstract:

This work investigates different aspects of direct contact membrane distillation (DCMD), from a microscopic study of membrane structure of an electrospun membrane and mass transfer mechanism across DCMD membranes, to the macroscopic picture of DCMD's design and technological viability in small-scale, localized desalination for the use in arid regions with a supply of brackish water.

Experiments were carried out to investigate the effect of membrane thickness upon transmembrane flux ...
