Device for the blending together of solid particles and a liquid, with the final formation of a single paste phase.


A low-speed impaction device for use in sampling both solid and liquid atmospheric suspensoids; consists of four pairs of jets (each of progressively smaller size) and sampling plates working in series and designed so that each plate collects particles of one size range.


A device containing one or more cloth bags for recovering particles from dust laden gas or air which is blown through it.


A device which removes dust or other finely divided particles from a gas by charging the particles inductively with an electric field, then attracting them to highly charged collector plates. precipitator.


A device that uses an air current to separate a material from another of greater density or particles from others of greater size.


A device, such as a filter, to retain solid particles allowing the liquid to pass.


A device to separate particles by size through the action of a stream of air. Also known as air elutriator.


  1. A rotating device for separating liquids of different specific gravities or for separating suspended colloidal particles, such as clay particles in an aqueous suspension, according to particle-size fractions by centrifugal force. 2. A large motor-driven apparatus with a long arm, at the end of which human and animal subjects or equipment can be revolved for high ratios of compression.


Inverted-cone device for the separation of heavy particulates (such as sand, ore, or other mineral matter) from a liquid stream; feed enters the top of the cone, heavy particles settle to the bottom where they can be withdrawn, and liquid overflows the top edge, carrying the smaller particles or those of lower gravity over the rim; used in the mining and chemical industries.


A device used to remove liquid or solid particles from a flowing gas stream.
