Co-Current Membrane Module
In Co-Current flow like counter-current flow, the feed flows on the shell-side. The feed thus contacts the outside of the fibers or flat membrane, and part of the solute permeates to the bores of the fibers or flat membrane. The fibers are closed at one end, so permeate is discharged from one end only. Good distribution of flow on the shell-side is a design problem for large diameter units.
