Tech Tips: Cross Flow Velocity (CFV)

May 29, 2017

Q: What is Cross Flow Velocity?

A: Cross flow velocity (CFV) is the linear velocity of the flow tangential to the membrane surface and is reported in [m/sec] or [ft/sec]. CFV affects fouling rate and formation of concentration polarization at membrane surface and is calculated by dividing the volumetric flow rate [lpm or gpm] in the flow channel by the cross sectional area [m2 or ft2]...
