Influence of Top Layer's Material and Flow Direction on Mass Transfer through Multi-Layer Ceramic Membranes for Membrane Reactors
The influence of top layer's material of membrane and flow direction on gas transport has been investigated. A simulation analysis has been done to study the influence of the material of permselective layer (top membrane layer) temperature and the direction of gas flow on the mass transfer through a composite membrane. Dusty gas model for single gas permeation has been used to study these effects. It is obvious from analysis that apart from top layer's material, flow direction has also an influence on the mass transfer though composite membrane.
