The Effect of Electrolyte Concentration and Ph on the Flocculation and Rheological Behaviour of Kaolinite Suspensions

The effects of the electrolyte concentration and pH on the settling behaviour, floc sizes and rheological behaviour of kaolinite suspensions were investigated. The results show that the settling behaviour of kaolinite changes with the ionic strength and pH of the suspension. In the acidic pH range, (pH 2) particles settle in flocculated form regardless of… CONTINUE READING
