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. Another volume currently available from the set is: Wakeman a Tarleton: Solid/ Fluid Separation Processes: Equipment Scale-up for Liquid Filtration.
