Membrane emulsification modelling: how can we get from characterisation to design?

Rayner, Marilyn LU and Trägårdh, Gun LU (2002) In Desalination 145. p.165-172
Abstract
There has been an increasing interest in a new technique for making emulsions known as membrane emulsification,

which uses a microporous membrane operated in cross-flow. The continuous phase is pumped along the membrane and

sweeps away dispersed phase droplets forming from pore openings as shown in Fig. 1. The effects ofprocess parameters

in membrane emulsification have been studied, especially on a quantitative level. However, the physical mechanisms

of droplet formation are still under investigation to better elucidate the roles of operating parameters, and finally model

the process. This work reviews current developments and deficiencies in the modelling membrane emulsification
