FLOCCULATION - PCM

2015-12-8  In flocculation processes, sedimentation rates largely depend on the molecular size of the polyacrylamide. Today’s flocculants are high molecular weight polymers and the size of molecule makes them sensitive to breakage during pumping operations.

A population balance model (PBM) is used to describe flocculation of particle tailings in seawater at pH 8 for a range of mixing intensities. The size of the aggregates is represented by the mean chord length, determined by the focused beam reflectance measurement (FBRM) technique. The PBM follows the dynamics of aggregation and breakage processes underlying flocculation and provides a good ...

Flocculants and tailings – Process productivity

2020-8-5  1. Feeds needing high solids dilution prior to flocculation. Fine particle flocculation leads to fractal-like aggregate structures, meaning that when they are large, they are highly porous and fragile. Large, fast-settling sizes often requires solids dilution, particularly in tailings with clays present.

Flocculation in Mineral Processing SpringerLink

Abstract. Flocculation is a characteristic property of colloidal dispersions. The typical classical sol contained sub-microscopic dispersed particles which would pass freely through ordinary filter-paper, and were too small to be resolved by any transmission optical microscope. Consequently, an arbitrary size limit of 0.1 μm could be defined as the upper size boundary of the colloidal range.
