Modeling Continuous Electropermutation with Effects of Water Dissociation Included
2010 (English)In: AIChE Journal, ISSN 0001-1541, E-ISSN 1547-5905, Vol. 56, no 9, 2455-2467 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The repeating unit consisting of a cell pair of one concentrate and one feed compartment of an electropermutation stack is modeled. Both the feed and the concentrate compartments are filled with an ion-exchange textile material. Enhanced water dissociation taking place at the surface of the membrane is included in the model as a hetrogeneous surface reaction. Results from simulations of nitrate removal for drinking water production are presented and comparisons with previous experimental results are made. The influence of both conductive and inert textile spacers on the process is investigated via simulations
