GRAPHITE ACQUEAS DISPERSION

Description
OBJECT: Disperse 50% by weight graphite powder into water and carbomer thickeners.
PROBLEM: Graphite requires high shear energy input to fully disperse – – thickeners require active wetting.
RESULTS: First graphite is added in down-mode and fully dispersed using up-mode – – viscosity adding carbomers added at end of the process.
AB MIXER: Model C-3-2, 20 HP in 500 gallon vessel.
BENEFIT: Full dispersion of all components in one hour.
EQUIPMENT REPLACED: High speed dispersers.
