1 Review
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.
