Abstract

Superimposed elec. fields are able to improve sepn. processes. The mechanism of the elec. aided processes involves some thermodynamical and hydrodynamical effects in sepn. systems, such as the change in a phase equil. and the elec. body forces of electrohydrodynamics. These effects can be used to form fine dispersions and to enhance the rates of heat and mass transfer. The efficiency of energy consumption by using elec. techniques is higher than that of traditional sepn. processes. Some recent engineering applications of the above aspects are presented in sepns., where a liq. is a continuous phase and the dispersed phase is either in the form of droplets of another immiscible liq., gas bubbles or fine solid particles. Finally some results of the authors' studies on gas-liq. processes in elec. fields are also discussed. [on SciFinder (R)]
