The Use of FBRM® in the Study of Flocculation Processes
CSIRO Division of Minerals
Flocculation performance was evaluated using a Lasentec® M500L with FBRM® technology. The ability of FBRM® to track changes on both the fine and coarse ends of the chord length distribution allowed evaluation of flocculation performance based on flocculant type, solution makeup, addition rate, solution age, and shear rate. The shape of each FBRM® distribution is a distinct indicator of the flocculation state.
