  • In the present paper we illustrate applications of a new set of force balance equations able to predict the average size of a droplet forming during cross-flow membrane emulsification processes. These balance equations allow to correlate the droplet diameters with the advancing and receding contact angles along the droplet-pore contact line. When the drops detach directly from the pore outlet without an appreciable neck formation (i.e. excluding very low cross-flow velocities) the predicted… CONTINUE READING
