Property and Influence of Membrane on the Absorption Efficiency of Sulfur Dioxide from Flue Gas
The method of wettability of solid-liquid interface is used to examine the differences of the liquid membranes formed by hydrophilic or hydrophobic membranes with different size and different materials, the influence of the characteristics of membrane modules in the process of desulfurization is studied. The method of accelerating the renewing rate of liquid membrane is proposed. The results show that the hydrophobic liquid membrane leads to higher renewing rate and absorption efficiency of sulfur dioxide and the hollow fiber membrane of polypropylene has higher adsorption efficiency. The dynamic contact angle of the same hollow fiber membrane is increasing with the number of the fibers leading to the increase of the diffusing resistance of liquid between the fibers. In order to accelerate the renewing rate of the liquid membrane, the concentration of the medium should be decreased under the condition of high absorption capacity.
