Latex paints and drug suspensions such as insulin or amoxicillin that do not need to be shaken or stirred may be possible thanks to a new understanding of how particles separate in liquids, according to Penn State chemical engineers, who have developed a method for predicting the way colloidal components separate based on energy. "The ongoing assumption was that if you have a mixture of different sized particles in a liquid, the faster-settling particles will end up on the bottom," said...

Suspended solids are materials that resist settling and remain suspended in water and other liquids. The ability to automatically concentrate suspended solids containing very-low concentration of microorganisms has been a troublesome task for scientists and researchers. Today this task is usually performed using Enviro-check cartridges, spending 6 hours for collection and then this process requires very complex process consisting of more than 20 steps prior to the concentrated samples of...

By Neupane, Dilli R Riffat, Rumana; Murthy, Sudhir N; Peric, Marija R; Wilson, Thomas E ABSTRACT: The overall objective of this research was to investigate various methods and parameters to increase the efficiency of chemically enhanced primary treatment (CEPT). The performance of CEPT was evaluated based on its efficiency of removal of nonsettleable solids (NSS). Some of the source characteristics that influenced NSS concentration included influent total suspended solids, influent...

By Huchler, Loraine If your plant's utility system is experiencing problems, the culprit may be the clarifier. Understanding how to diagnose and correct off-spec clarifier operation will allow downstream units to function more efficiently and reliably. Maintaining the reliability of a plant's utility system is critical to support production and manufacturing. These systems do not generate a direct profit, and investments in manufacturing process improvements invariably take precedence over...
