The focus of this issue is "Thinking Like Sherlock Holmes." Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson are fictional characters of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Process engineers who live in the real-world can learn many things from the two of them for solving process filtration problems.

In a recent article in the International New Your Times, Karen Jones writes "Many of the techniques used by the Sherlock Holmes character all those years ago are now real techniques used today by forensic scientists." There is also a new book by Maria Konnikova "Mastermind-How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes" (Viking Penguin (USA) Inc. 2013).

In recent months, there have been many articles about modular construction of plants and skids systems. In Business Week, there was an interesting article about building complete plants in other locations and then shipping these plants to the site. In a recent Chemical Engineering article �Thinking Inside The Box� the benefits of modular skid fabrication was discussed over a �stick-build� approach.

Over the past years, there have been many articles about centrifuges, filter presses, nutsche filters, vacuum filters and other conventional equipment and how they have been improved. We have also heard from the chemical operating companies that while these improvements are important, their processes are requiring finer removal efficiencies to meet stricter quality parameters. A&SoF profiles several articles addressing these topics.

Exclusive Video Coverage of Chem Show 2011 from Processing

The BHS video describes the BHS expertise for thin-cake (3 mm - 25 mm) filtration, cake washing and drying. We have technologies based upon both pressure and vacuum filtration, for batch or continuous operations from  high solids slurries (up to 50% solids) to clarification applications with solids to 1% and less (trace amounts).

BHS filters provide alternatives to centrifuges, nutsche filters, rotary vacuum filters and filter presses as well as manual plate filters, bag filters and other conventional separation equipment. Our units offer full containment and automatic discharge of solids.  Each of our products are available in a small scale kilo-lab unit to over 200m ². Preliminary bench-scale tests can be conducted either in our labs in Charlotte or at your facility to determain the most applicable filtration method for your specific application.
