  • Development of low-cost rotational rheometer

    Liquids with non-Newtonian properties are presented in many engineering areas, as for example in membrane bioreactors where active sludge exhibits shear thinning properties. Therefore, the ability to determine the rheology's dependence on shear is important when optimising systems with such liquids. However, rheometers capable of determining the viscosity are often expensive and so a ...

  • Profile: Factors that influence properties of FOG deposits and their formation in sewer collection systems

    The quantification of the factors that may affect the formation of the fat, oil, and grease (FOG) deposits and their chemical and rheological properties were predominantly covered in the paper. The factors included the types of fats used in food service establishments (FSEs) and the types of calcium sources and environmental conditions (i.e. pH and temperature) in sewer systems. These factors are ...

  • Monsal Enzymic Hydrolysis – New Developments And Lessons Learnt

    Abstract Over the last ten years, a variety of pre-treatment technologies have emerged claiming to optimise anaerobic digestion. Of all these technologies, biological hydrolysis (Monsal Enzymic Hydrolysis) is the most widely adopted technology in the UK. Monsal Enzymic Hydrolysis has now been selected for eleven plants; eight operational, one under construction, and two in design, and the ...


  • Slightly hydrophobic silica nanoparticles for enhanced oil recovery: interfacial and rheological behaviour

    This paper is aimed at studying AEROSIL® R816 nanoparticle behaviour to see if it has enough feasibility to be used as a chemical agent in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) processes. The main focus is on interfacial and rheological behaviour of this particle in aqueous and polymeric media. Interfacial tension measurements between aqueous nanoparticle suspensions and oil showed that AEROSIL® R816 ...

  • Effect of carbon black nanoparticle on the morphology rheology and thermal properties of emulsion polymer blends

    In this study, the effects of the content of carbon black (CB) nanoparticle on the morphology of the emulsion polymer blends were investigated. The immiscible polymer blend was prepared with polystyrene (PS) and polypropylene (PP) in the absence and presence of different contents of CB nanoparticle in a twin screw mini extruder. The blend morphology was determined by Scanning Electron Microscopy ...
