Abstract:

TECHNICAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATES PROPOSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NOVEL, NONCAKING ULTRASONIC FILTER, A DEVICE THAT USES STANDARD FILTER MEMBRANES PLACED IN AN ACOUSTIC FIELD TO TRAP AND TRANSPORT PARTICLES AWAY FROM THE FILTER SURFACE. BOTH SOLID AND FLUID PARTICLES SUSPENDED IN A FLUID MEDIUM MAY BE ACTED UPON BY THE MOVING PRESSURE SURFACES. PARTICLES SIZED BETWEEN 0.5 AND 100 MICROMETERS HAVE BEEN TRANSPORTED BY THIS TECHNOLOGY. THE FILTER WILL BE USED TO CLEAR BACTERIA FROM REVERSE OSMOSIS MEMBRANES, FOR DESALINATION, AND TO IMPROVE FERMENTATION PROCESS
