KAOLIN CLAY (Polymers)
APPLICATION - Measure the Concentration of a Waste Stream of Kaolin and Water as it is fed into a Settling Pond. In the Settling Pond, Polymers are added to the water so that the Kaolin will sink to the bottom. The Customer wants to control the amount of Polymers he adds to the Pond to a minimum.
This is a Continuous Process with our system being used for Closed Loop Control and Visual Monitoring.
Major Problem -
1. The liquid mixture, which, arrives at the Settling Pond, contains air bubbles.
2. The Microwave System does not work well when there are air bubbles in the liquid.
3. A solution was needed which would overcome the problem of Air Bubbles in The Liquid.
4. This Solution is shown on Page 2.
BENEFITS - By knowing the Concentration of the Kaolin Clay in the Waste Stream, the Customer will know exactly how much Polymer to add to the Pond. by only adding the amount of Polymers, which are required to sink the Kaolin Clay, the Customer saves money.
QUALITY - The Customer will have more control and better understanding of the process.
REPEATABILITY - +/- 0.3 %
MEASURING RANGE - .5% to 5% Concentration in the Kaolin Slurry is Typical.
