Convection promotion within a tubular ceramic membrane by using the Kenics static mixer is studied. The experiments were carried out with aqueous solutions of pectin and sodium carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), for Reynolds number in the range of 60–5000. From the results of these experiments it can be concluded that the presence of convection promotor decreasing the concentration of the gel layer. The experimental data are correlated satisfactorily by the equation of the general form Sh = A Re°Scb.
