The effect of flow direction in radial porous ceramic membrane has been extensively studied. Understanding fluid flow through membrane has offered utility to a number of industrial processes such as gas separation, catalytic reactions, enhanced oil recovery, and water purification. In these processes the direction of fluid flow affects the magnitude of certain quantities such as of permeation, injection pressure, pressure gradient and mobility. The extent of this effect has been studied for some gases on an individual basis, however, in this research, common industrial gases (i.e. Air, and Carbon dioxide) have been simultaneously investigated thereby offering an opportunity for a comparative study of the effect of flow direction on the respective gases.
