Study Results from China University of Science and Technology Provide New Insights into Purification Technology (Electrodialysis with notched ion exchange membranes: Experimental investigations and computational fluid dynamics simulations)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Investigators publish new report on Purification Technology. According to news reporting from Hefei, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Electrodialysis (ED), which equips ion exchange membranes (IEMs) in a direct current field, has widely been employed for desalination and separation of electrolytes. To date, IEMs for ED have commonly been plain, and should be stacked with spacers to provide water flow channels along membrane surface."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the China University of Science and Technology, "This study reports a novel notched IEMs, which is a combination of a plain IEM and a spacer. Continuousmode ED test has been performed to evaluate its desalination performance. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation of properties of the flowing solution gives an insight into advantages of the unique geometry of membrane surface."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Particularly, results of CFD simulations are consistent with experimental investigations and conform that the notched membranes exhibit better performances than traditional plain ones for ED applications."
