  • Causes and Solutions for Air Bubbles in Microfluidic Systems

    Formation of gas bubbles in microfluidic systems can sometimes be desirable. For example, they enhance mass and heat transfer inside the system. However, they usually create complications, such as clogging of microchannels, and they have a very destructive effect on long term cell culture experiments. Undesirable gas bubbles always occur in microfluidic systems, especially when gas permeable ...

  • Dilute Stream Solid-Liquid Separations Using Continuous Vacuum Filtration Technologies

    Abstract: Continuous solid-liquid separation, by vacuum or pressure, are integral components of a processing scheme to produce energy from algae, biomass or other types of slurries. In solid-liquid separation systems, there are a wide variety of parameters that influence their performance. These include, for example, particle size and shape, type of particle (i.e. soft, gelatinous, discrete), ...

  • RAMPING UP BOTANICAL EXTRACTION METHODS IN VACUUM FILTRATION

    A large part of extracting commercially important compounds from plants involves passing a type of solvent over plant material, then filtering out any plant debris and undesirable by-products. This latter filtering process can be difficult to optimize if too many undesirable compounds inadvertently come along for the ride; so how can you speed things up? In several states, cannabis sativa (AKA: ...

  • Opinion: Geologists unveil how Britain first separated from Europe - and it was catastrophic

    As Brexit looms, Earth scientists have uncovered evidence of Britain’s original split from mainland Europe. Almost half a million years ago, according to new data, water suddenly started cascading over the narrow strip of land that joined England and France – putting pressure on a chalk bridge. Researchers show that, as a result, this ridge – a natural dam that separated the ...
