...Abstract Abstract Direct contact membrane distillation (DCMD) for desalination often suffers from membrane fouling, scaling, low permeate water flux and pore wetting. This study focuses on the integration of sonication with DCMD to mitigate these problems by enhancing mass flux and reducing...

...Abstract Abstract Membrane distillation (MD) has been studied as a promising solution in the desalination industry but it has not been widely accepted or commercialized due to energy and cost concerns. MD is considered as a hybrid method that involves phase-change thermal processes and the use...

...Abstract Abstract Computational fluid dynamics simulations were conducted to model the effect of adding mixing promoters in sweeping gas membrane distillation modules. Net-type spacers of 45° are placed in the feed side while membrane corrugation is employed with the tips of the corrugation...
