Ammonia removal

The surface of porous polypropylene hollow fibre membranes is strongly hydrophobic (water repellent). Membranes with air filled pores are almost water impermeable but highly permeable to some inorganic gases, e.g. to ammonia. The membrane wall with the dry pores is an ammonia / liquid interface. The liquid phase is waste water. The ammonium mass transfer goes from the liquid phase into absorption liquid. The driving force of the gas transport through the membrane is the chemical potential difference across the membrane.

The pilot test equipment is in the following figure:
