Osmotic evaporation through macroporous hydrophobic membranes: a survey of current research and applications

Kunz, Werner ; Benhabiles, A. ; Ben-Aim, R.


A review with 18 refs. The principle of osmotic trans-membrane evapn. is exposed and compared to other membrane contactors. The origin and the current description of the vapor flux are critically reviewed as well as the importance of the boundary layers near the membranes. Furthermore, a compilation of results obtained on the lab. and on the industrial scale is given and the disagreements between the conclusions of different research groups are discussed.
