Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR SEPARATING LIQUID MIXTURES USING INTERMITTENT HEATING
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL POUR SEPARER DES MELANGES LIQUIDES UTILISANT UN CHAUFFAGE INTERMITTENT
Abstract:
(EN) A liquid mixture is efficiently separated using a separating membrane against which the liquid is sprayed, the membrane being intermittently heated to increase separation without subjecting the liquid mixture to high heat. The method is suited to flammable, toxic and temperature sensitive liquid mixtures.
(FR) Un mélange liquide est séparé efficacement en utilisant une membrane de séparation contre laquelle le liquide est pulvérisé, la membrane étant chauffée de manière intermittente pour augmenter la séparation, sans soumettre le mélange liquide à une forte chaleur. Le procédé convient bien aux mélanges liquides inflammables, toxiques et sensibles à la température.
