The study presents the method of determining constant coefficient b2, occurring in general filtration equation (1), in the second part of the denominator, that is in the expression for deposit resistance In the considerations, lack of the deposit's compressibility was assumed, which means that the deposit porosity is constant. With such an assumption, constant coefficient b2 is equivalent with transmission coefficient, which occurs in commonly known and accepted equation – as the baseline

This study is another publication in the cycle of basic tests of the filtration process which constitute next publications of the authors, published in Rocznik Ochrona Środowiska [Annual Set the Environmental Protection] as well as in the magazine Gospodarka Surowcami Mineralnymi [Mineral Resources Management], to which the reader interested in these problems can refer. Another study will be the publication discussing the filtration process with the creation of sediment on the filtration deposit, hence in the general filtration equation (1) the value of sediment resistance RO will appear in the denominator. Relevant cycle of publications will study the possibilities of use of gravitational deposit filters in which the porous deposit will be the set of coal grains, while the fed mixture will also be the post-production suspension of coal grains.
