Solid-Liquid Separation is a major unit operation that exists in almost every flowscheme related to the chemical process industries, ore beneficiation, pharmaceutics, food or water and waste treatment. The separation techniques are very diverse and the objective of this site is to provide a platform for plant and design engineers, research personnel and students to discuss practices, experiences and new developments in this fascinating unit operation.

The site is still under construction and so far the following sections have been completed:

Sections that will be soon added:

The site, when completed, will review the following topics:

This site does not cover separation methods such as screening, hydrocycloning, froth flotation and dissolved-air flotation due to my limited experience in these applications.

Other related subjects that will be discussed are:

Please do not hesitate to comment on any of the topics, your opinion, open discussion and criticism are most welcome!
