Paper on “Compressive Strength & Capillary Pressure: Solid-liquid separation processes
September 25, 2012

Solid-liquid separation processes are used throughout various industries for the purposes of recovering valuable filtrate, increasing the solids concentration of slurries, etc. Several solid-liquid separation operations involve formation and consolidation of a saturated cake followed by desaturation of the cake, including

vacuum, air-driven, gravity and centrifugal filtration and evaporation from a drying suspension such as a paint film or ceramic body. In addition to the theoretical considerations, this work presents a technique for measuring breakthrough pressure using an air-driven filtration method. The report found at this link
