Update to CPC Project Numbering
As a result of system upgrades, as of the CPC 2022.05 release, the numbering system of CPC projects is changed from parallel numbering to serial numbering and an extra digit is added.
From 2013 to 2022.02, projects used a set of parallel numbering, e.g. RP0001, RP0002, MP0001, MP0002, DP0001, DP0002.
The new numbering is a single set of serial numbers with an extra leading digit, e.g. RP10001, DP10002, MP10003, MP10004, DP10005, RP10006 so that each project gets a unique number to eliminate any risk of confusion between projects of different types.
When finalising a project that was originally published with an old-style number, the old number is still used for convenience and clarity.

NOTES
1. This subclass covers:
  • evaporation, distillation, crystallisation, filtration, dust precipitation, gas cleaning, absorption, adsorption;
  • similar processes which are not concerned with, or limited to, separation, except in the case of absorption or adsorption.
2. In this subclass, the terms or expressions are used with the meaning indicated:
  • "filtration" and analogous terms include straining solids from fluids. Filtration is a process that normally uses a filter medium;
  • "filter medium" is a porous material or porous arrangement of material used to filter solids from fluids;
  • "filtering element" is a section of filter medium in addition to parts to which the medium is demountably or permanently fixed, including other sections of medium, end caps, peripheral frames or edge strips, but excluding housings;
  • "filter housing" is the fluid-constraining impervious vessel, whether open or closed, which contains, or is adapted to contain, one or more filtering elements or filter media;
  • "filter chamber" is the space within a housing, where filtering elements or filter media are located. Partitions may divide a single housing into a plurality of chambers;
  • "filtering apparatus" consists of filtering elements combined with housings, cleaning arrangements, motor or the like parts, which are characteristic of the particular type of apparatus. Ancillary devices such as pumps or valves are considered part of a filtering apparatus when inside the apparatus. Ancillary devices performing similar or different unit operation such as comminutors, mixers or non-filtering separators, whether or not inside the apparatus, are not considered part of a filtering apparatus. The term does not extend to apparatus, e.g. washing machines, of which the filter forms only a part.
3. For apparatus used in drying or evaporation, class F26 takes precedence over this subclass.
4. Group B01D 59/00 takes precedence over the other groups of this subclass and over other subclasses in class B01.
5. {In this subclass, combination sets [C-Sets] are used. The detailed information about the C-Sets construction and the associated syntax rules are found in the definitions of B01D.}
