This paper presents a survey of the methods of equipment selection and process design for solid/liquid separation. It is shown how a combination of automated analysis, laboratory scale test work and computer aided calculations provide the most reliable results. Current best practice is highlighted, both in terms of the computer software available (e.g. Filter Design Software) and the advantages offered by automated filter apparatus for data generation. Worked examples and example data are presented to show the capability of the overall process.
