Analysis of filter cake structures by using micro tomography

E. Löwer*, U. A. Peuker, Technical University Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany

Reliable information about micro processes during filtration and deliquoring of filter cakes allows more precise statements about process development and design in any industrial application with solid-liquid separation units. In reality, distributed particle properties like shape and size influence mainly the porous network build-up with possible local deviation in vertical and horizontal alignment. A wide range of particles sizes and particle shape influence highly the filter cake formation. Current models for the relationship between particle properties and resulting porous structure lack of accuracy. Therefore, the central question is the model-based correlation between the obtained data (distributed particle size, shape, and pore size) and characteristic network parameters...
