Settling Column Method
The shortcomings of using Stokes Law and related equations are potentially overcome by measuring the settling velocity distribution directly using a settling column. The columns have a diameter of 6 to 12 inches (15 to 30 centimeters) and a height of 3 to 6 feet (1.5 to 3

The Principles of Gravity Separation

This is the first article in a three-part series on gravity separation, eventually leading to the best method for sizing basins, using field data as confirmation of the method. Gravity separation is a set of unit processes in which gravity removes settleable solids and associated pollutants, floatables, and dispersed petroleum
