WAKEMAN, R.J. and TARLETON, E.S., 1990. Modelling, simulation and process design of the filter cycle. Filtration and Separation, 27 (6), pp.412-419
Taking a vacuum belt filter as a basis, the authors show how different stages of solid-liquid separation
interact and affect one another in an attempt to point a way towards more rational design of a
separation system. The models used are based on fundamental concepts of varying complexity, and
sufficiently developed to facilitate design calculations. They can also be readily incorporated into
process integration and optimisation packages, and form part of a suite of computer software
packages being developed at Exeter University.
