FILTRATION

* Filtration may be defined as the separation of solid
from a fluid by means of a porous medium that
retains the solid but allows the fluid to pass.
*The suspension of solid and liquid to be filtered is known as the slurry.

The porous medium used to retain the solids is described as the filter medium;

• The accumulation of solids on the filter is referred to as the filter cake,

• while the clear liquid passing through the filter is the filtrate.
