Coulson and Richardson's chemical engineering. Vol. 2, Particle technology and separation processes.

Chemical Engineering Volume 2 covers the properties of particulate systems, including the character of individual particles and their behaviour in fluids. Sedimentation of particles, both singly and at high concentrations, flow in packed and fluidised beads and filtration are then examined. The latt...
