Fluid–Solid Separations by Free Settling

Scientists study the world as it is, engineers create the world that never has been.”

—Theodore von Karman, 1881–1963, Mathematician

I.    FLUID–SOLID SEPARATIONS

The separation of suspended solids from a carrier fluid is a requirement in many engineering operations, e.g., the extensive listings of wide ranging applications and the equipment available in Besendorfer (1996), Chen (1997), Wakeman and Tarleton (2005) and Fernando Concha (2014). The most appropriate method for achieving this depends upon the specific properties of the system, the most important being the size and density of the solid particles and the solids concentration (e.g., the “solids loading”) of the feed stream. For example, ...
