Polyacrylamide is a typically used chemical in dewatering procedures, especially in the treatment of wastewater and sludge.
It is an artificial polymer made from acrylamide monomers and can be in the type of a white granular powder or a liquid solution.
In dewatering applications, polyacrylamide is contributed to the sludge or wastewater to improve the performance of the separation procedure.
It works by forming a network of polymer chains that binds together the strong particles, permitting them to settle quicker and more effectively.
Polyacrylamide can be categorized into three types based upon its molecular weight: low molecular weight, medium molecular weight, and high molecular weight.
The kind of polyacrylamide utilized in dewatering applications depends upon the qualities of the sludge or wastewater being dealt with, as well as the specific dewatering process being used.
The effectiveness of polyacrylamide in dewatering depends on numerous elements, including the dose, the blending speed, the pH of the sludge or wastewater, and the temperature.
In basic, a higher dose of polyacrylamide causes better dewatering performance, however extreme use can cause blocking of the dewatering equipment.
Polyacrylamide is also used in other applications, such as in the production of paper and textiles, as a soil conditioner in agriculture, and as a flocculant in the mining industry
