Abstract
The U.S. Bureau of Mines Tuscaloosa Research Center is conducting research to develop a basic understanding of solid-liquid separation in order to improve the dewatering of fine-particle slurries. In the present investigation capillary suction time (cst) of kaolin slurries was determined. The average specific resistance of the cake was also determined by fitting the cst data to the theoretical equations used in this paper. The experimental data were analyzed by a powerful computer-based method, chemometrics, that uses statistical techniques to remove error and to find the number of physically significant factors contributing to the data. Results showed that two significant factors explain the cst data.
