FILTRATION THEORY 1 A dV dt = P µ ( R m + R c ) Poiseulle’s Law Filtration Rate Broth Viscosity Resistance to Flow V=filtrate volume A=Filter area t=Time P=Pressure Driving Force µ =Broth viscosity W=Mass of filter cake R=Resistance α =Specific cake resistance S=Compressability factor R m = α W A Cake Resistance α=α ' P S Specific Cake Resistance

The filter resistance is much less than the cake resistance Rc<<Rm 1 A dV dt = P µ ( α ' P S W A ) When the filter cake is incompressible, S=0 1 A dV dt = P ( ' W A ) When the filter cake is very compressible, S=1.0 1 A dV dt = 1 ( ' W A )
