AB - Three commercial spiral-wound membrane modules of different sizes, from 1.8″ × 12″ to 4.0″ × 40″, are used to concentrate a solution of sucrose octaacetate in ethyl acetate under different operating conditions. A mathematical model to describe the batch concentration process is developed, based on a combination of the classical solution diffusion membrane transport model and the film theory, to account for the mass transfer effects. The model was implemented using the “OSN Designer” software tool. The membrane transport model parameters as well as all parameters in the pressure drop and mass transfer correlations for the spiral-wound modules were obtained from regression on a limited number of experimental data at steady state conditions. Excellent agreement was found between the experimental and multi-scale modelling performance data under various operating conditions. The results illustrate that the performance of a large scale batch concentration process with spiral-wound membrane modules can be predicted based on laboratory crossflow flat sheet test data when the fluid dynamics and mass transfer characteristics in the module, and the necessary channel geometry are known. In addition, the effects of concentration polarisation, pressure drop through feed and permeate channels, and thermodynamic non-ideality of the solution at large scale batch concentration are also investigated.
