In this post, I want to share how to do a simple calculation on determination of time required to obtain certain amount of filtrate in a filtration test. We will still use basic equation as in previous post.
For example, we have this case.
A filter press with a surface of 50 m2
C (weight of solid per volume of liquid) = 135 kg solid/m3 liquid
μ = 0.001 N sec/m2
α (specific resistance of the cake) = 1.1 (1011) m/kg
Rf (resistance of filter cloth) = 6.5 (1010) m-1 Read More
