The abilities of multifunctional polyelectrolytes to enhance aluminum hydroxide dispersion and inhibit silica scale formation were examined in a pilot cooling water system. The following multifunctional polyelectrolytes were studied: a terpolymer of acrylic acid (AA), 2-acrylamide-2-methyl propane sulfonic acid (SA) and N-vinylpyrrolidone (NVP) (P(AA/SA/NVP… CONTINUE READING
