  • Provides guidance on how to tackle practical solid/liquid separation problems in an industrial setting
  • Shows how to plan, conduct and interpret experiments
  • Details test procedures, types of tests and how to interpret results when assessing a new application
  • Strong emphasis on current industrial practice
  • Provides a practical account which will help lead to the best use of appropriate equipment yielding optimal results

This book identifies test procedures used within sectors of the solid/liquid separation equipment industry, providing practical explanations for test data and their uses when faced with a new application to assess. With a strong practical emphasis, this book is ideal for use as a reference text for engineers concerned with applications evaluation of equipment or its scale-up.

This book forms part of a five-volume set on all aspects of filtration and separation processes. Another volume currently available from the set is: Solid/ Fluid Separation Processes: Principles of Industrial Filtration

Readership: Plant and process engineers, project design and equipment engineers, contractors, consultants, operations managers, chemical engineers.
