This app allows to calculate the resistance of the filter cake, the filter efficiency and resistance of the filter medium, it also plots the flowrate as a function of time, all of this based on the data collected in the Lab (charged volume, solid mass, operation pressure, filter, cartridge and water mass before and after the process and, the heights in function of time).
You may use diatomaceous earth or calcium carbonate as solid in suspension.
You may also register as many heights/times as taken.
