A Tutorial on the Optimization of the Flocculation Sequence.
Fluid/particle Separation J 1990 Mar; 3(1):46-49
Flocculation plays a major role in the solid-liquid separation process practiced throughout the processing industry. The factors that affect the flocculation sequence are often overlooked in many industrial applications. This U.S. Bureau of Mines tutorial discusses such factors as polymer choice, polymer concentration, feed composition, particle size, and the effect of mixing on the flocculation process.
