Principle of filtration
It is based
on the use of a filter made of meshes that allow to water to pass but
Example: the filtration of an orange juice and its pulp
Filtration of orange juice and
observe that the filter retains particles of pulp whereas liquid flows
throught fillter without them.
A filtration is a process that withdraws solid particles from a liquid
therefore it provides a homogeneous liquid.
- The liquid which is obtained from a filtration is called "filtrate".
- This is a quick method of separation but its effectiveness depends on
the mesh size.
