Summary

The first comprehensive reference on all aspects of industrial centrifugation technologyThis practical resource offers detailed coverage of fluid particle separation in centrifuges, examining equipment, selection, testing, and optimization for specific applications, from small-scale protein separations to large-scale industrial techniques involving batch and continuous feed sedimenting, as well as parallel filtering operations.Integrating theory with hands-on methods, many of which are previously unpublished, the book discusses laboratory, pilot, and production tests; illustrates the most appropriate and efficient methods for particular needs; explains the dewatering of wastewater sludges to high cake dryness; and classification of fine particles; delineates the theory of centrifugal clarification, classification, degritting, cake compaction, and drainage; furnishes invaluable case histories and trouble-shooting guidelines, and more!

Author Biography

Wallace Woon-Fong Leung, Sc.D., a leading international expert on centrifugation and fluid-mechanics on separation processes, is Director of Process Technology at Bird Machine Company (a Baker Hughes company) and a Course Director for the Center for Professional Advancement, New Brunswick, NJ. Dr. Leung is the author of numerous technical papers and over 25 United States patents, and a contributor to Perry’s and Green’s Chemical Engineers Handbook, Seventh Edition and Schweitzer’s Handbook of Separation Techniques for Chemical Engineers, Third Edition (both published by McGraw-Hill). He was awarded the Cedric Ferguson Medal by the Society of Petroleum Engineers based on his research work on flow in a porous media.
