# Calculate Membrane Areas Given In Filtration Process

Question

In a 3-stage continuous ultrafiltration process, a solution is concentrated from 5 gm/Liter to 50 gm/Liter of protein. The final retentate is to have a flow rate of 1000 L/hr. The rejection coefficient of the protein is 0.95. The membrane flux (liter/meter^2/Hour) is: J = 50.82exp (-0.01626 * C) where C is the protein concentration. Assuming the permeate flows rate from each membrane is equal (p1 = p2 = p3), and using the rule of thumb: J(avg) = J (final) + 0.333 * [J(initial) – J(final)]

Calculate the membrane areas A1, A2, and A3 to described the operation described above. Also calculate the % protein recovery.

Summary

The question belongs to Chemistry and it discusses about calculating the membrane areas described in the filtration proces. This has been discussed in the solution detail.

Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
