The effect of the surfactant hydrophilic groups and concentration of electrolyte in an internal aqueous phase on the interfacial interactions and rheology of highly concentrated emulsions
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2012)
Emulsion explosives are classified as highly concentrated Water-in-Oil emulsions with an internal phase volume fraction of approximately 94%, i.e. far beyond the close packing limit of spherical droplets of 74%. These ...
The effect of type and concentration of surfactant on stability and rheological properties of explosive emulsions
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2009)
This study investigated water-in-oil (WIG) super-concentrated emulsions used as pumpable explosives. The aqueous phase of the emulsions is a supersaturated nitrate salt solution (at room temperature), with a volume ...
