First Report to Characterize the Rheological Properties at Consecutive Transient Low Shear Rate of the Alumina Suspension Stabilized by Phosphate Ester
Pages : 460-463
Rheological measurements are widely used to characterize dispersions, both as a means of studying their fundamental properties and as assessment of their suitability for particular technological purposes. Knowledge of their rheological behavior is essential for almost all dispersion in order to handle them satisfactorily. A numerous methods such as control tests for degree of dispersion, particle size analysis, sedimentation behavior, rheological determination, and optical analysis are established for characterization of dispersion. Among them rheological determination method play a very significant role in the assessment of the dispersion. In this paper, we report a cumulative impact of transient shear with time on viscosity profile for well dispersed alumina suspension having different degree of aggregation stabilized by phosphate ester at low shear domain.
