Dynamic separation of suspended solids
Metadata[+] Show full item record
A pilot study of a dynamic means of separating suspended solids from a two-phase flow is described. The separation is achieved by passing the two-phase flow through an orifice. The difference in mass between the suspended solids and the fluid causes the path lines of the solids to deviate from the fluid streamlines when flowing through the abrupt contraction. Withdrawal of the center portion of the jet issuing from the orifice results in a primary separation of the solids from the fluid. The utility of this separation technique is indicated.
