Abstract

A mathematical model based on multiphase filtration theory is developed to describe the electrofiltration process. The model takes both electrophoretic and electroosmotic effects into account. The electrophoretic migration velocity of solid particles is predicted from the model using the filtrate volume time data obtained from electrofiltration experiments.
