  • Due to the high product quality achievable, considerable attention of the researchers is being addressed to the cross-flow direct membrane emulsification (CDME). The key advantages of this process over traditional technologies are a better control of the droplet sizes of the emulsion and its efficiency in terms of energy density requirement. In the literature, macroscopic models have been employed to describe the influence of process parameters and membrane properties on droplet formation… CONTINUE READING
