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.

At different time intervals 15 beginning from time zerosamples were drawn from each of the sample ports from top to bottom.

The results are show in Table 3. The results are shown in Figure 4. When one specific column-settling test is finished, the pushing device is used to push the sample out the top of the settling column.

Each ml was further divided into eight intervals of That is to say, in our tests, compression settling can have a significant influence when conducting the analysis with Kynch theory.

The physical hydrology of mill-tailings impoundments. Because the influence of the segregation occurs in the process of settling, Kynch theory cannot be unconditionally applied to the analysis of the results. Doctoral dissertation, University of Alberta 91 Moussavi, N. Application of dewatering technologies in production of robust non-segregating tailings.

As such, the equation of this line OR should be: Since the attractive force tends to pull particles close to each other, the increase of this force enhances this process, and has been expressed through the acceleration of macroscopic sedimentation. Since we know that the concentration varies with the height x, the total particles crossing level K can also be expressed as: This can be expressed as: Since the formulation of the Kynch Sedimentation Theory, researchers have used the theory to develop thickener design methods.


In both concentration regions, the settling rates of the suspension in the thickening mass were lower than the corresponding initial settling rates. A structure of sediment has developed at the bottom of the column.

For those sets in which the interfaces between the supernatant water and the suspension formed, samples of supernatant water were taken from the 25 ml mark above the interface for turbidity measurement.

Besides, the theory also predicts the existence of layers in the suspension where the concentration suddenly changes seddimentation value. The results of the sedimentation of kaolin are shown in Figure 4. The following question was explored in this research: Application of electronic particle counters.

However, the rest of the prediction curve sedlmentation longer matches the experimental data, as there is a big difference between the two final heights.

In order to divide the samples into different fractions, beakers were used to store the samples from different heights of the suspension. In this part, the solids content is supposed to be equal to the initial solids content. Kona Powder and Particle Journal, 20 0 In the first method, the original total tails and distilled water were mixed in a beaker using a stirrer until the samples were fully mixed.

The results of the turbidity measurement are shown in Table 3.

Settling velocities of particulate systems, 6. Soils and Foundations, 20 2 When the upper interface in the first set reaches a certain height, use the pushing device to push the suspension out and collect the samples with beakers.


The settling of particles from a suspension depends on both the characteristics and the concentration of the particles. A new experiment apparatus was constructed to conduct column settling tests and column settling tests with sample collection.

Particles forming flocs in low concentration suspensions. According to this explanation, Concha and Bustors claimed that Kynch theory is only valid for materials with low compressibility.

Marine Geology, 69 3 When the line reaches around ml, a dramatic change is noted in the solids content. Samples kynxh mixed in a 1L beaker and decanted into the settling columns. Tests were also conducted on fines of copper tailings with dispersant, kaolin and a mixture of kaolin and concrete sands.

Beakers were used to collect samples for 34 other uses. The conventional column-settling test begins with a mixing of the sample with solution to form suspension.

Experimental data is listed in Appendix F. The conclusions of this research can be summarized as follows: UBC Theses and Dissertations.
