class qsdsan.equipments.Membrane(ID='', linked_unit=None, units={'Material of membrane': '', 'Number of membrane modules': '', 'Surface area of membrane': 'm2'}, F_BM=1.0, lifetime=10000, lifetime_unit='hr', N=0, material='polypropylene', unit_cost=0.1, surface_area=1)

Membranes to be used in an electrochemical cell. Refer to the example in ElectroChemCell for how to use this class.

  • N (int) – Number of units of the given membrane.

  • material (str) – Material of the membrane.

  • unit_cost (float) – Unit cost of the membrane per m2, will use default cost (if available) if not provided.

  • surface_area (float) – Surface area of the membrane in m2.
