FLOW MEASUREMENT APPARATUS
Description of Flow Measurement Apparatus:
This experiment has been established to investigate the relationships existing between the rate of flow, pressure, and the thickness of the filter cake. Once these relationships are determined for a particular filter press, the size of the ancillary equipment (i.e. pumps and piping) can be determined. The apparatus in our laboratory can be operated in two modes; constant inlet pressure to the filter, or constant filtrate flow rate from the filter. Students will investigate both modes of operation experimentally. Finally, the knowledge gained will be used to design a plate-and-frame filter press operation.
