Enter the total solids in the press cake and the total solids pumped into the screw press into the Solids Capture Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Solids Capture Rate.

## Solids Capture Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Solids Capture Rate.

**SCR = SC / SS**

Variables:

- SCR is the Solids Capture Rate ( )
- SC is the total solids in the press cake
- SS is the total solids pumped into the screw press

## How to Calculate Solids Capture Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Solids Capture Rate.

- First, determine the total solids in the press cake.
- Next, determine the total solids pumped into the screw press.
- Next, gather the formula from above = SCR = SC / SS.
- Finally, calculate the Solids Capture Rate.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total solids in the press cake = 500

total solids pumped into the screw press = 1000

SCR = SC / SS** **= ?
