Particulate Dispersion


Particulate Dispersion may be the most straightforward of the six concepts for scale control. A formal definition of Particulate Dispersion is where a mixture of finely divided particles, called the internal phase (often of colloidal size) is distributed in a continuous medium, called the external phase. More simply stated, Particulate Dispersion is a suspension of particulates in an aqueous solution. These can be Inorganic (i.e. calcium carbonate), Organic (i.e. biomass) or a mixture of the two. Polymer composition and Mw are key determinants in deriving functionality for effective particulate dispersion. INITIA™ Polymer Additives are effective particulate dispersants for a wide-range of particulate types and applications.
