This book is part of the Industrial Equipment for Chemical Engineering Set. Throughout these concise and easy-to-use books, the author uses his vast practical experience and precise knowledge of global research to present an in-depth study of a variety of aspects within the field of chemical engineering.

In this volume, the magnetic properties of solids and their separation in a magnetic field are studied. A detailed description of the electronic filter and its functioning is also provided. Numerical examples are proposed for the use of Venturi (which is a convergent–divergent).

The theory of the centrifugal separator with superimposed plates is also developed alongside the screw-mud-separator.

The author also provides methods needed for understanding the equipment used in the hope of encouraging students and engineers to build the programs they need themselves.

The chapters are complemented with appendices which provide additional information as well as any associated references.


1. Separation by Decantation or Precipitation in a Magnetic or Electrical Field.
2. Gas–Liquid Separator Vats and Drums.
3. Wet Dust Removal from Gases: Venturi Pulverization Column, Choice of a Dust Remover and Other Devices.
4. Separation Between a Fluid and a Divided Solid Through Centrifugal Force.
