In this work, the impact of wave regime and operational parameters on the photocatalytic degradation of methylene blue was investigated on a thin film coated ultra-violet spinning disc. In the employed experimental setup, the wave regimes of spiral, unstructured and crisscross waves as well as smooth film could be observed at disc rotational speeds of 50 to 200rpm and flow rates of 5 to 20mL/s with a calculated average thickness of 160 to 450μm. The glass discs were coated with anatase TiO2 by… CONTINUE READING
