The oxygen permeation performance of Ba 0.5 Sr 0.5 Co 0.8 Fe 0.2 O 3−δ (BSCF) mixed-conducting multichannel hollow fiber (MCMHF) membranes was improved by surface modification via spin-spraying of a La 0.6 Sr 0.4 CoO 3−δ (LSC) porous layer. At 1173 K, the oxygen permeation flux of the modified membranes was clearly enhanced and reached 9.68 mL·cm −2 ·min −1 , which is a remarkable high value in the field of mixed-conducting oxygen permeation membrane processes.

Moreover, the process of oxygen permeation through the modified membrane was controlled by both bulk diffusion and the surface oxygen exchange reaction, whereas the oxygen permeation of the unmodified membrane was dominantly controlled by the surface oxygen exchange reaction. The modified MCMHF membranes showed generally stable oxygen permeation fluxes over 100 h at 1173 K.
