Water is removed through selectively permeable membranes.
A relatively simple and economical process and apparatus for concentrating hydrogen peroxide from aqueous solution at the point of use have been invented. The need for this or a similar invention arises for the following reasons:
- The highest commercial grade of hydrogen peroxide has a concentration of 70 volume percent.
- Concentrations of more than 80 volume percent are required in some industrial and some military propulsion applications.
- Prior methods of concentration of hydrogen peroxide are expensive and can entail production of quantities larger than can be utilized immediately. The necessity of storing and handling the excess concentrated hydrogen peroxide poses a safety problem.
