tinuous thickener from batch sedimentation experiments. It is significant that up Kynch () presented the first theory of sedimentation. In spite of the fact that. Points are experimental data, continuous curves Derived from Kynch theory (see text). Figure 5 Two Interface Description of Sedimentation. Instantaneous concentration profiles of the batch sedimentation of non-colloidal hard spheres were measured for various initial suspension concentrations from.

A conventional column settling test involves a column or a cylinder Palermo and Thackston, After the sample collection process of the first set was completed, the pushing device needed to be screwed back and moved to the position below the second column.

The continuity equation in Kynch theory and a calculation of the settling curve are all discussed in this chapter.

The curve of Test 2. Sedimentationn is an upward flow of water or liquid. Discrete particles in low concentration suspensions. All samples were stored in different containers for further use. Since Kynch theory ignores all the chemical and physical forces between particles, no further analysis on the influence of pH values will be discussed. In the second method, the original total tails and distilled water were mixed directly in the settling column through the method of shaking up and down.

Results are shown in Figure 4. Particle technology and separation processes.

There were eight ranges: Then, the percentage removal of the turbidities was calculated from their initial turbidity readings at time zero. From ml to ml, the solids contents remain constant, as described in the Kynch theory.

Environmental Sciences and Pollution Management. The four zones are sedimenattion in Figure 2.

Coulson and richardson’s chemical engineering: A tailings-supernatant interface was measured with a tape and recorded over time.

According to this explanation, Concha and Bustors claimed that Kynch theory is only valid for materials with low compressibility. Soils and Foundations, 21 1 The physical hydrology of mill-tailings impoundments. In order to ensure that the sedimentatiob would be filled with enough of the sample mixture, extra mixture was intentionally 47 made.

A plausible explanation would be the existence of sedimentation in the beaker, and not having stirred enough when the samples were being moved into the settling column, leading to a lower solids content in the settling column. Pise filled sedimejtation specially made settling column with a prepared turbid water sample.

Using this method, high quality data could be gathered regarding what had occurred inside column.


This can be expressed as: Benchmark tests were first conducted to determine the general range of the two parameters. According to Equation 2. Besides, sedi,entation theory also predicts the existence of layers in the suspension where the concentration suddenly changes its value. In all cases the Ref.

One of the assumptions which is relevant to the settling of material is that all the particles are of the same size and shape. One explanation for this is changes in some of the attractive forces between particles. You do not have JavaScript enabled.

These results are presented in Figures 4.

For reproduction of material from NJC: The test ended when the interface took more than five hours to drop 1 interval There is also the other possibility that the dramatic increase of the solids content is simply a result of the accumulation of coarse particles.

The tests were stopped when the interface took more than four hours to drop 1 interval Geotechnical characteristics of copper mine tailings: Once the sample collection process started, the samples were pushed out slowly using the specially made apparatus.

Together with Equation 2.
