Solid/ Liquid Separation / Principles of Industrial Filtration

Richard J Wakeman and Stephen Tarleton 
Elsevier Science  2005  


Hardcover  340 pp  ISBN 9781856174190      £175.00
  • Comprehensive coverage of the scientific and engineering bases for solid/fluid separation processes
  • Emphasis given to fluid dynamics, gravity, centrifugal and membrane separations, filter cake formation, deliquoring and washing
  • Includes an extensive bibliography
Solid/ fluid separation is a major element in the processes performed in many industries, such as pharmaceutical, food, beverage, water, pulp and paper. Several books now exist on the more esoteric aspects of the techniques, but accounts of the fundamental principles involved are few. In this book, two well-known chemical engineers review the scientific and engineering bases for solid/ fluid separation processes in an approachable style.

Coverage is comprehensive, with emphasis being given to fluid dynamics, gravity, centrifugal and membrane separations, filter cake formation, deliquoring and washing. An extensive bibliography allows the reader to pursue topics in greater depth.This book forms part of a five-volume set on all aspects of filtration and separation processes.

Readership: Project, design and equipment engineers: plant, production and process engineers; contractors; consultants; operations managers; chemical engineers and academics in chemical engineering
