Further studies into oil droplet size manipulation

Francis, Mathew; Pashley, Richard M


Recent work has shown that heating degassed oil-in-water emulsions causes a significant reduction in the oil droplet size. The results presented here report further work on the effect of changes in salt concentration, oil/water ratio, pH and heating, on the oil droplet sizes of dispersions produced by the de-gassing process. The change in particle or droplet size for long, straight chain hydrocarbon oils, dispersed in water by degassing, is also reported here. These oils, of 20-24 carbon units...[Show more]
