Filter Unit Op.
Is the filter unit Operation in DWSIM under the 'Solids' tab a " Rotary Drum Filter" working with a constant pressure drop across it? and is the 'submerged<span style="background-color: rgb(250, 250, 250);"> fraction' input the fraction of solids in the feed?</span>

The filter unit operation is not a Rotary Drum Filter in specific. Rather, it's a continuous cake filter where feed, filtrate, and cake move at steady constant rates. It is evident that the process consists of several steps in series - cake formation, washing, drying, and discharging - and that each step involves a progressive and continual change in conditions. The pressure drop across the filter during cake formation is, however, held constant.
