Dr. Abdoulaye Doucouré, senior scientist at Hollingsworth & Vose, delivered a presentation on the “Relevance of Filtration Processes in Solid-liquid Separation” yesterday as part of the conference's Liquid Tutorial. In the presentation, Dr. Doucouré says solid/liquid separation can proceed through different mechanisms driven by forces such as gravity, centrifugation, and electricity/magnetism, or filtering methods including straining, cake filtration, depth filtration and membrane filtration. This class targets liquid filtration and pressure-driven membrane processes. The content was primarily geared towards participants not familiar with the field of liquid filtration and wanted to learn more about the main application areas.
