Membrane Specifications for Multi-Configuration Membrane Distillation Model


The data includes the membrane properties and specifications used for multi-configuration membrane distillation desalination. In this study, membranes from CLARCOR, 3M, and Aquastill are tested in counter-current, co-current and air-gap configurations at Colorado School of Mines (CSM), Advanced Water technology Center ( Aqwatech) laboratories.

In the data sheets:
The "theoretical" worksheet, contains steady-state values of the experimental runs and also provides several calculated values.
The "Specifications" worksheet contains the inputs to the experiment.
The "Data" spreadsheet contains the entire set of data and the rest of the sheets "20-40", "20-45", ...etc., contain individual portions of the data with variation of feed temperatures.
