Membrane Reactors and Contactors

Membrane Reactors and Contactors Photo A MR is a plug-flow reactor that contains an supplementary cylinder of a porous material within it, kind of like the tube within the shell of a shell-and-tube heat exchanger. This porous inner cylinder is the membrane that gives the membrane reactor its name. The selectivity of the membrane is controlled by its pore diameter, which can be on the order of Angstroms, for microporous layers, or on the order of microns for macroporous layers.
A membrane contactor is a device where separation of compounds is accomplished due to a specific driving force through the membrane from the one phase to the other on opposite sides.
