Abstract: This paper examines utilization of a plate and frame membrane air stripping system for the removal of volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) and radon from a water supply. Previous work explored hollow fiber membranes and noted limitations imposed by the configuration. Multiple regression/correlation techniques (both linear and non-linear) are used to model mass transfer coefficients and fluid resistances. The work indicates that plate and frame membrane air stripping may prove a viable alternative to packed tower aeration and carbon adsorption for the removal of VOCs and radon.
