Extending Depletion Flocculation Phase Behavior Models to Partially Soluble and Aggregating Colloids—AsphaltenesDownload
Mixtures of colloids + non-adsorbing polymers + good solvents are well known to exhibit multiphase behaviors that are driven by the depletion flocculation mechanism where one phase, designated a colloid gas, is largely comprised of polymer and solvent, while the other phase, designated a colloid...
Oilsands tailings are a waste product comprising primarily a stable alkaline suspension of clay in water. This waste product of oilsands mining is environmentally hazardous to store and expensive to safely dispose of. This work presents two novel ideas for dealing with the waste. The first is...
Dewatering of the oil sands mature fine tailings (MFT) is studied through pressure filtration following treatment by dual polymer flocculants. Polymer pairs consisting of anionic polyacrylamide (A3335) and cationic polyDADMAC (Alcomer 7115), and A3335 and non-ionic polyethylene oxide (PEO) are...
