Integrates knowledge on microfiltration and ultrification, membrane chemistry, and characterization methods with the engineering and economic aspects of device performance, device and module design, processes, and applications. The text provides a discussion of membrane fundamentals and an analytical framework for designing and developing new filtrations systems for a broad range of technologically important functions. It offers information on membrane liquid precursors, fractal and stochastic pore space analysis, novel and advanced module designs, and original process design calculations.
". . .a well-written and documented text. This book can be considered the comprehensive reference for microfiltration and ultrafiltration techniques and principles. Scientists interested in an in-depth analysis of the techniques of membrane filtration will want to add this reference to their library. "
