Freebase

  1. Settling

    Settling is the process by which particulates settle to the bottom of a liquid and form a sediment. Particles that experience a force, either due to gravity or due to centrifugal motion will tend to move in a uniform manner in the direction exerted by that force. For gravity settling, this means that the particles will tend to fall to the bottom of the vessel, forming a slurry at the vessel base. Settling is an important operation in many applications, such as mining, wastewater treatment, biological science, space propellant reignition, and particle mechanics.
