Abstract

We used a stochastic model and have performed a series of numerical simulations to optimise the step of microorganisms collection on magnetic carrier particles. We obtained that the time of capture depends on concentration of carrier particles in suspension, their size, the volume fraction of magnetite in the composite material, the applied magnetic field intensity and its gradient, the size and density of micro-organisms to be collected and the density and viscosity of the liquid in which the particles axe suspended.
