- ‘The local authority licence allowed the disposal of household, commercial, and industrial waste, and by 1996 about 850,000 m of waste, including calcium sulphate filter cake, had been deposited on the site.’

- ‘Holden indicates that when the slurry remained in place for a month a thick filter cake had built up and that side resistance was significantly reduced.’
- ‘It provides a means for rapidly drying temperature-sensitive materials such as filter cake and granular pelletized materials.’

- ‘In laboratory tests, however, filter cake is built under static conditions with no erosion.’
