Using the SZP-04 or SZP-06 electordes to analyze calcium carbonate in slurry and measure the influence of dilution.
Introduction Calcium carbonate is a white pigment used as a filler in alkaline papermaking.
Method Determination of the zeta potential
Sample Slurry of calcium carbonate with dispersant
Solid Content 1 - 65%
Sample Preparation First, the slurry is measured undiluted. Subsequently, the solid content is reduced by adding definite amounts of deionized water.
Equipment SZP-04 or SZP-06, special electrodes for pigment slurries, filter circle (black ribbon)
Result Many particle slurries have to be diluted before the application, because the solid content of the commodities is often very high.
