Dispersed Phase

 

the aggregate of small, uniform solid particles, droplets of liquids, or bubbles of gas that are uniformly distributed in the surrounding (dispersion) medium. The dispersed phase and the dispersion medium form disperse systems.

Moreover, the addition of SEBS could make the dispersed phase act as toughening particles of the blends, because of that SEBS was found to be compatible with PPO due to PS blocks.
2] has shown that radiative heat transfer due to clusters and the dispersed phase are the same i.
obl]) heights on time of the spontaneous imbibition in the cases of emulsions with the various dispersed phase concentrations and with/without adding of gelatine.
The method of membrane emulsification involves the use of low pressure, typically 200 kPa, to force the dispersed phase to permeate through a tubular membrane having a uniform pore-size distribution into the continuous dispersion medium.
We performed calculations taking into account the interparticle collisions with introduction of Reynolds stresses of the dispersed phase.
To describe the dynamics of the dispersed phase in a turbulent two-phase flow, some continuous-phase properties are required, such as the mean fluid velocity and the root-mean-square fluctuating fluid velocities (i.
Basic relation exists between the hold up ([psi]) (the volume fraction of dispersed phase in the system), the interfacial area per unit volume (a), and the bubble or droplet diameter ([D.
However, such inversions often occur at higher dispersed phase volume fractions, near 50 to 74 percent where maximum droplet packing is approached (Barnes et al.
This can be explained by an increase in the volume of the droplets, which translates into an increase of the volume of the dispersed phase.
More interesting show up those of viscosity (and its dependance from temperatures), and further those of presence of particulate matter: both seem to us logically related to the dry matter difference, which may well denote the presence, besides solutes, of a dispersed phase, modifier of rheologic properties.
