During microfiltration, limiting (JL) and critical flux (JC) are essential. Using these concepts, the operational zones, have been established for flux (J) versus transmembrane pressure (ΔPT). However, the resistance model cannot be used for an accurate description of these operational zones. The aim of this work was to evaluate the application of an equation for process parameters’ determination during skim milk microfiltration. The exponential model, J = JL(1 – exp(−ΔPT/(ΔPT)C), allowed a… CONTINUE READING
