The changing nature of today's business is forcing companies to complete more projects faster than ever before, with ever decreasing resources. This chemical process development webinar reviews some of the specific challenges facing scientists in chemical process development, and illustrate ... more
De-Emulsification and Emulsification of Petroleum-Water
This webinar discusses how chemically induced emulsions improve flow but create stable emulsions which are difficult to break and separate. Polymeric surfectants such as poly(vinyl alcohol) improve emulsion properties and also be separated. Inline particle characterization provides feedback to balance the amount of stabilizing agents needed to affect interfacial tension with the process temperature and shear required to create a mestastable emulsion. The droplet size and droplet size distribution are important emulsion properties related to fingerprint the stability and viscosity of an emulsion.
