ELECTROKINETIC PURIFICATION DEVICE

An electrokinetic purification device includes at least three channels and a turbulence-reduction component for reducing turbulence with the concentration polarization (CP) zone. The main channel includes a pair of electrodes in contact with a solvent stream entering and exiting the main channel. A waste diversion channel branches from the main channel, allowing flow-through of a high concentration portion of the stream. A turbulence-reduction component comprised of a neutrally charged porous is placed across the entire interior cross section of the main channel and in contact with the upstream surface of the permselective material. The clean solvent discharge channel branches from the main channel, allowing flow-through of a low concentration portion of the stream.
