membrane separation

membrane separation

[′mem‚brān ‚sep·ə′rā·shən]
(chemical engineering)
The use of thin barriers (membranes) between miscible fluids for separating a mixture; a suitable driving force across the membrane, for example concentration or pressure differential, leads to preferential transport of one or more feed components.
