Exploring the success factors that combine to deliver this performance. Finding ways to get more from your processes, with examples, case studies and scenarios.
Solid-Liquid Filtration is a crucial step in the production of virtually everything in our daily lives, from metals, plastics and pigments through to foods (and crockery) and medicines. Using a practical and applied approach, Trevor Sparks has created a guide that chemical and process engineers can use to help them:
- Understand how filtration processes affect production processes, production costs, product quality, environmental impact and productivity
- Optimise process development and project execution, with real examples and supporting software forms and tools.
- Develop reporting tools to monitor processes, and find ways to get more from processes
This book's focus is helping process engineers understand their filtration processes better. Its accessible approach and style make it a valuable resource for anyone working in this sector, regardless of prior knowledge or experience.
About the author
Trevor Sparks PhD., founder of Filter-Ability Ltd, Ireland, is a consultant within the filtration industry, working for end-users and technology-providers. He has worked in the process industries for 20 years and has focussed on filtration for the last 15 of these. He has previously worked for BHR Group Limited, Larox Oyj (now a part of Outotec), Finland, and as a Marie-Curie Research Fellow at UC RUSAL in Ireland. He is a Member of the Council of the Filtration Society.
- Several examples and scenarios are provided throughout the book in order to help engineers understand the importance of filtration and the effect that it has on the bottom-line.
- Covers methods for optimizing processes, include process variable, plus laboratory testing, modeling and process troubleshooting
- Accompanied by optimization software that enables readers to model and plan optimal filtration processes and set ups for their particular circumstance.
This book focuses on sterilizing grade filters in the biopharmaceutical industry, emphasizing practical applications of universal and dependable operational protocols, integrity testing, and troubleshooting to streamline the production and preparation of pharmaceuticals.
Addresses the complexities of globalizing redundancy in filtration
Enabling educated developmental, procedural, and regulatory judgments to be made in the manufacturing of sterile health care products, Sterile Filtration
considers how many filters should be in the process stream
examines the existence of nanobacteria and viable but nonculturable organisms
covers pore size designations, distributions, architecture, and numbers
discusses the latest findings in bubble point and diffuse flow measurements
describes pre- and postfiltration, up- and downstream testing, and after-stream sterilizations
details wetting liquid, polymer, temperature, and water purity effects
explains sieve retention, size exclusion, adsorptive sequestrations, charge-related phenomena, gravitational settling, and interference factors in liquids and gases
outlines filter validation, requirements, and operational specifics
Advocating separation in addition to physical destruction of microorganisms, Sterile Filtration is a reference essential for pharmaceutical scientists; biotechnologists; microbiologists; virologists; process and chemical engineers; plant, production, validation, and quality control managers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate school students in these disciplines.
Biofiltration For Air Pollution Control
The number-one environmental threat to public health, air pollution remains a pressing problem-made even more complicated by the massive quantity and diversity of air pollution sources.
Biofiltration technology (using micro-organisms growing on porous media) is being recognized as one of the most advantageous means to convert pollutants to harmless products. Done properly, biofiltration works at a reasonable cost-utilizing inexpensive components, without requiring fuel or generating hazardous by-products.
Firmly established in Europe, biofiltration techniques are being increasingly applied in North America: Biofiltration for Air Pollution Control offers the necessary knowledge to "do it right."
