For a batch ultrafiltration, develop a spreadsheet to predict as functions of time with concentration, volume and permeate flows for batch ultrafiltration. Assume the flux depends on concentration as follows: J(Liter/Meter2/Hr) = A*EXP(-bC) when C is the retentate concentration in g/L.
Assume the recirculation rate is kept high enough that shear rate dependence is eliminated.
Do a sample run with:
Cfinal = 50 g/L
Assume a filtration area of 19.4 M^2 and an initial volume of 3255L.
Assume rejection coefficient of the protein = 1.0, or 0.95, or 0.90.
The question belongs to Chemistry and it discusses about calculating prediction as functions of time in the filtration process. This has been discussed in the solution detail.
