Bitumen recovery by the water-based extraction process produces waste streams known as tailings. When discharged into the tailing ponds, the coarse solids in the tailings stream settle out quickly, while the fine solids accumulate over years of settling to a solids content of 30-35% by weight....
Among all the competing methods to enhance the phase separation of water-in-oil emulsions in chemical industries, electric field is considered as one of the best treatment options. To better understand the mechanism by which electric field assists water droplets coalescence and the corresponding...
Bitumen froth from oil sands extraction typically contains 60 wt.% bitumen, 30 wt.% water, and 10 wt.% solids. To meet downstream process specifications, the water and solids in bitumen froth have to be removed. The objective of this study is to identify the source of the water reporting to the...
Stabilization of water droplets in froth treatment process results in poor de-watering efficiency and potentially affects final bitumen quality. The purpose of this research is to study the effect of solid contamination by diluted bitumen on water droplet stabilization in water in oil emulsions....
