|Abstract||A hybrid solid/liquid separation process consisting of a micro-filtration module submerged directlyinto a flotation cell has been developed. The flotation cell removes solid particles; while the membrane module produces a clean water permeate effluent. The proof of concept for the hybrid solid/liquid separation process has been investigated using synthetic zeolite fines. The effect air sparging (necessary for the flotation process), air bubble size and solid particle content on the performance of the hybrid process have been studied. Preliminary results indicate that the presence of fine air bubbles and the low zeolite particle content improved the hybrid cell performance.|
