Up to date, sludge filterability has been characterized by the Ruth's classical filtration theory and quantified by the well-known parameter specific cake resistance (SCR). However, the complexity of the actual phenomenon is clearly underestimated by the classical filtration theory and SCR is often not satisfactory in describing filterability. Although many scientific studies were conducted for a better analysis and understanding of the filtration theory, still a practically applicable solution to replace the classical theory for a better description of filterability has not been proposed yet. In the present study, filtration laws proposed by Hermans and Bredee, dating back to 1936, which have been extensively used in the membrane literature for the analysis of fouling phenomenon has been adopted for the analysis of filterability of sludge systems. The results clearly show that this approach is superior to the classical approach in terms of characterizing the filterability of sludge systems and provides a slurry specific characterization parameter to replace the commonly used SCR.

SPECIFIC CAKE RESISTANCE - MYTH OR REALITY
TOSUN, I; Yetiş, Ülkü; WILLIS, MS; CHASE, GG (1993-01-01)
The specific cake resistance is considered to be the key factor in the characterization of sludge dewaterability. The use of this parameter without knowing how it is derived and the conditions under which it can be used has been creating a great deal of confusion in the literature. Moreover, the lack of a universally agreed test method to determine its value causes additional problems. Hence, attempts to go from the laboratory data to the full scale industrial equipment using this concept may end up in fail...
A WASHING THEORY FOR UNSATURATED FILTER CAKES USING THE CAPILLARY MODEL
BATIGüN, AYSEGüL; Tosun, İsmail (Informa UK Limited, 1987-11)
A rigorous washing theory is developed using the area averaging technique for unsaturated filter cakes. Limiting cases of the resulting equations are investigated. The assumptions used in the modelling are verified. The mass transfer parameters, which are evaluated by the application of the moment analysis, are shown to be directly proportional with the volumetric flow rate of the wash liquor. Experimental results also indicate that, for a given wash liquor volumetric flow rate, the increase in the cake ...
A new instrumental setup for determination of small amplitude viscoelastic properties of dough during fermentation
Mert, Behiç (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2008-05-01)
In this study, the working principles and the theoretical background of a new method to measure the viscoelastic properties of dough in the fermentation process are presented. During measurements, the dough sample was placed between a stationary bottom plate and an oscillating top plate and squeezed at random frequencies ranging from 10 to 100,000 rad/s. By measuring the required force and velocity of oscillations, the mechanical impedance of the samples, defined as the ratio of the force to oscillation vel...
A COMPUTATIONAL STUDY ON SOME SELENIUM-CONTAINING NAPHTHALENE DERIVATIVES
Türker, Burhan Lemi (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
A quantum chemical study, based on DFT theory is presented which considers certain selenium-containing naphthalene derivatives, including a keto group together with a Se atom embedded in either a five- or six-membered ring fused with naphthalene moiety. The corresponding enol structures also are considered. The quantum chemical and IR data collected are analyzed and NICS(0) values have been obtained.
