HOLDICH, R.G., TARLETON, E.S. and WILLMER, S.A., 1994. Compressible cake filtration. Proceedings, IChemE Research Event, London, pp.1044-1046.
The formation of a compressible kaolin filter cake has been examined using an electrical
conductivity technique that continuously monitors the local solids concentration with height and
time during filtration. The relative importance of liquid drag, solids weight and velocity inside a filter
cake during the cake forming process were studied, and their effect on the modelling approach of
Tiller and Shirato considered. It is concluded that a more accurate representation of the cake
concentration profile would result from an incremental simulation of the solid deposition process.
