The steps performed during the experiment are as follows :
1. The setup constitutes a teflon tubular cell with a flat circular teflon base plate that houses the ceramic membrane.
2. The membrane was kept in the teflon casing and sealed with epoxy resin.
3. The outlet of the setup was connected to a gas flow meter using a silicon tube for measuring the gas flow rate at various trans - membrane pressure differentials.
