(627c) Dializer Design: An Analytical Asymptotic Criteria

Frederick, K., Tennessee Technological University

In this contribution, scaling methods developed by BSL for heat transfer applications are adapted to model and obtain asymptotic information about the design and scaling of a multitubular dialyzer. The method yield a relatively simple but helpful solution to quickly determine the size of a dialyzer by knowing the Sherwood number. Details and results of the approach will be presented.
