The obtained permeate flows Qp for the corresponding different feed flow rates Qf are shown in Fig. 8. Note that Sirolimus only the large and small feed flow rates are presented in Fig. 8, due to the small differences between the medium and small feed flow rates. As expected, the permeate flow rate was directly affected by the feed flow rate. Furthermore, not only were the observed permeate flows different, but the total salt passages also varied under the varying feed flow conditions ( Fig. 9). For the batch system, pressure, feed flow and concentration all vary with time, which explains the more complicated pattern of results than normally seen in a continuous flow system ( Fig. 10).
Fig. 8. Permeate flow rate profiles for the two different feed flow rates (they are secondary (lateral) meristems colored according to Fig. 7). Similar to the above observed changing of feed flow, all the permeate flows display a two-stage feature.Figure optionsDownload full-size imageDownload as PowerPoint slide
