Title (EN) PROCESS AND APPARATUS FOR OSMOTIC FLOW CONTROL IN ELECTRODIALYSIS SYSTEMS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL POUR LA RÉGULATION DU FLUX OSMOTIQUE DANS DES SYSTÈMES D'ÉLECTRODIALYSE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An electrodialysis process and apparatus is presented for improving the current efficiency of salty water desalination. The process includes reducing the osmotic and the electro-osmotic flow of water from diluate compartments to concentrate compartments, and between electrode compartments and adjacent compartments, by confinement and hydraulic isolation of their contents in constant volume compartments, so that the tendency of waters entering from diluate compartments to concentrate compartments leads to pressure buildup in the concentrate compartments, reducing the transfer of product desalinated water to the concentrate waste.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil d'électrodialyse pour améliorer l'efficacité actuelle de la désalinisation de l'eau salée. Le procédé comprend la réduction du flux osmotique et électro-osmotique de l'eau des compartiments de dilution vers les compartiments de concentration, et entre les compartiments d'électrode et les compartiments adjacents, par confinement et isolement hydraulique de leur contenu dans des compartiments à volume constant, de telle sorte que la tendance des eaux à entrer des compartiments de dilution vers les compartiments de concentration provoque une accumulation de pression dans les compartiments de concentration, en réduisant le transfert d'eau dessalée produite vers le concentré déchet.
