The separation of finely-divided solids from liquids constitutes an important stage in many industrial processes. Separation of mixtures ranging from highly concentrated slurries to slightly turbid liquids must be effected in circumstances where the solids, liquid or both phases may have value. Separations may be achieved by use of a membrane or filter medium which, positioned in the path of a flowing suspension, will allow passage of the fluid whilst retaining solids on the surface or within the medium. Alternatively the two phases may be separated by sedimentation processes involving gravitational or centrifugal force. In either mode, separation difficulties are sometimes experienced with the result that solid-liquid separation is often a bottleneck in commercial plants. Operational difficulties and plant failures are associated with the random nature of the particles being separated; variations in size, shape, states of aggregation, compressibility, etc. , produce a wide range of problems. Plugging of the filter medium or the collapse of the solids under applied stress lead to slow flowrates of liquid. The colloidal nature of some precipitates makes separation by settling virtually impossible without the use of chemical agents to enhance the size of basic units and to reduce repulsive surface forces. Unit operations such as filtration, comminution, etc. , involve a seemingly bewildering array of machines which makes plant selection a difficult step and reflects the uncer tainties attaching to operations involving the solid )hase. Many types of pressure, vacuum and centrifugal filter are available.

The aim of this book is to inform engineers about the available equipment options for solid/liquid separation, to put these into classifications so that an engineer can make an informed equipment selection for a particular separations problem, and to present applicable models so that meaningful design and simulation calculations can be carried out. Within this context the role of expert systems and computer simulations are elucidated, with many examples showing the nature of calculations that can be undertaken and their significance. The focus of this book is design and simulation, linking practical aspects of filter selection and design to models that have been proven by industrial practice. An overall aim of this book is to bring closer together and rationalise both practical information and fundamental knowledge. In doing so, the importance of both must be recognised and the synergy that results from a good understanding used to improve design and simulation.
