TARLETON, E.S. and WAKEMAN, E.S., 1993. Expert system for solid/liquid separation equipment selection. World Filtration Congress 6, Nagoya, Japan.
Commercially available expert systems on their own are inadequate for solid/liquid separation
equipment design and selection. Software which utilises a well-chosen mix of algorithm,
graphics, expert system, and interactive input from the engineer is more effective. An example of
the application of the combined approach to equipment selection is given to demonstrate that
efficient software can save time and enable decisions to be made rapidly. Equipment selection
using the pC-SELECT software is shown.
