( Chemical Engineering : Reactors and separators )
Effective electromembrane purification of waste waters is achieved by a combination
of electrodialysis and electrofiltration.
In electrofiltration, electrophoretic motion drives particles toward the filter, and increases the probability
of the particles being captured in the filter bed.
Electrofiltration is a separation process in which an electric field is applied across a filter to
