A framework for simulating filter cycles is presented, based on a blend of tested theoretical models and accepted design procedures. Output from the simulator predicts correctly the general effects of process variables. Some sample results are used to illustrate these when it is applied in a general sense to a diaphragm (variable volume) filter press.
