The Mechanism of Desalination by Reverse Osmosis

Description: From Introduction: " With the ultimate objective of improving the process, a study of the mechanism(s) of material transport across the membrane was undertaken; the OSW sponsored a fundamental program of investigation of the Reverse Osmosis Process. Following a brief review of the results of the first year's investigations, the body of this report will cover the accomplishments of the second year's effort."

A New Design Concept for Reverse Osmosis Membrane Cells

Description: From Introduction: "A new concept, that of lateral permeation of product water through a porous substrate, is the basis for both the cost reduction study of plate-and-frame reverse osmosis units and the study of field replacement of membrane and is therefore the subject of the development studies encompassed by this report."

The Mechanism of Desalination by Reverse Osmosis

Description: Report describing the various parameters operative in fabricating desalination membranes for the Reverse Osmosis Process and the mechanism of separation. The bulk of the membrane contains huge quantities of capillary water which permits the movement of water through the body of the membranes at extremely rapid rates, there being essentially no pressure drop in this portion of the membrane.
