Solid /Liquid Separation process by Decantation is Separation by sedimentation or settling in by a force field (gravitational, centrifuging) wherein the advantage is taken of differences in phase densities between the Solids and the Liquids. The solid is allowed to sink in the fluid under controlled conditions. In the reverse process of filtration, the particles rise through the liquid by virtue of a natural or induced low “solids” density due to air bubble.. more >
