A model describing the influence of temperature on degree of concentration polarization is proposed. The model is based on the following assumptions: (1) membrane morphology is temperature-independent; (2) transport characteristics of membrane are invariant with coordinate; (3) specific water permeability of the membrane is based on exponential dependence of viscosity vs. temperature; (4) temperature-dependence of membrane rejection is assumed to be linear. Proposed models permit quantitative correlations of longitudinal mass flow and degree of concentration polarization at different operating temperatures. It enables analysis of the influence of temperature, mass flow, bulk concentration, axial velocity, channel geometry, physical properties and membrane rejection on longitudinal distribution of concentration polarization degree. The submitted model does not contain digital integration and can be segmented into optimization algorithms.
