Filtration: An Elementary Treatise on Industrial Methods and Equipment for the Filtration of Liquids and Gases for those Concerned with Water Supply, Ventilation, and Public Health; Chemists, Mechanical Engineers, and Others

Nature volume 110, page 663 (18 November 1922) | Download Citation



THE very ambitious title of this small volume would naturally lead one to expect more than is contained in the book. The author has wasted a good deal of the space at his disposal by a rambling style and by irrelevant discussions. Thus, on p. 4 no less than thirteen lines are sacrificed to a reference to a paper in connexion with two very simple chemical equations which are to be found in every text-book. Much of the text deals with very elementary matters, which should be assumed to be known by the readers. In consequence, the remaining space is insufficient to render possible a clear description, in sufficient detail, of apparatus for technical filtration.
