The first comprehensive reference on all aspects of industrial centrifugation technology
This practical resource offers detailed coverage of fluid particle separation in centrifuges, examining equipment, selection, testing, and optimization for specific applications, from small-scale protein separations to large-scale industrial techniques involving batch and continuous feed sedimenting, as well as parallel filtering operations.
Integrating theory with hands-on methods, many of which are previously unpublished, the book discusses laboratory, pilot, and production tests; illustrates the most appropriate and efficient methods for particular needs; explains the dewatering of wastewater sludges to high cake dryness; and classification of fine particles; delineates the theory of centrifugal clarification, classification, degritting, cake compaction, and drainage; furnishes invaluable case histories and trouble-shooting guidelines, and more!
