Abstract
The U.S. Bureau of Mines has investigated the use of rheology to provide insight into the mechanism of flocculation. A technique developed by tattersall has been modified and used to explain the flocculation of calcium montmorillonite with polyethylene oxide. The results indicated that there are two type of bond systems operating during the flocculation sequence. Also, flocculation results are highly dependent on the shear rate and the amount of polymer added.
