In this work, the size classification of a mixture of submicron and micron size Ni particles dispersed in aqueous solution was investigated. The suspension of Ni particles was allowed to flow, under laminar condition, through a burette filled with an adhesion medium (i.e. substrate). The difference between zeta potentials of larger particles and adhesion medium created a base for the heterocoagulation. Thus, the larger particles move towards the medium assisted by the Saffman lift force and are attracted to its surface. The finer particles, on the other hand, flow off the burette and were collected as a separate fraction. This phenomenon was then explained by numerical simulating the particle's motion and showing that a stronger Saffman lift force will act in the direction of the substrate only for large particles, leaving the smaller ones unaffected as they sediment out.
