It was found that PTT/EMMA-GMA and PTT/(EMMA-GMA/ EMAA-Zn(4/1)) achieved much finer dispersed particles than that of PTT/EMAA-Zn and PTT/(EMMA-GMA/EMAA-Zn(1/ 1)).
Both phases of dispersed particles and blood exchange momentum are allowed to have the fluid-particle interaction.
This type of volume distribution curve reflects the increase in number of dispersed particles and also the increase of monodispersity of solid phase.
The firm then examines the sample under high magnification to grade the dispersed particles based on their size distribution.
Gawel et al., 1997), and also with the attribution of the colour to dispersed particles of Ni-containing minerals (cf.
As a result, it was found that dispersed particles started to be packed tightly in the constant drying rate period, and that void fraction and surface structure of particle-packed layer scarcely changed in the latter part of the falling drying rate period.
1 shows that the structure of sodium alginate NO4 600 elements includes dispersed particles of irregular shapes, sizes ranging from 20 to 250 [micro]m.
For holographic data storage applications, the composite morphology after microphase separation should remain unchanged during melting and recrystallization of the dispersed particles. This composite also contains a light-absorbing chromophores which absorb light from the interference pattern, creating localized hot spots.
In these plots three main regions are identified: low dose, where at the flocculant concentration in the residual water does not allow the wastewater clarification; the optimal dose region, which corresponds to the optimum flocculant concentration for the total removal of TSS and turbidity; and the overdose region, indicating flocculant concentrations that cause stabilization of the dispersed particles and have an adverse effect on the quality of treated water.
Using automated imaging alongside laser diffraction is an efficient way of detecting problems with dispersion since it allows multi-particle agglomerates to be visually distinguished from primary, dispersed particles. A change in shape resulting from a change in feed source or process scale-up may also be efficiently detected.
