The percent of reduction in head coefficient at shut-off point ([phi] = 0), for the pump working with solution 1 (180 centipoise) and solution 2 (300 centipoise), relative to that of working with water, is 43.4% and 67%, respectively.
Para interpretacao das mudancas na viscosidade apos acrescimo do Bario usou-se a classificacao sugerida pela ADA (2002) [12] a qual apresenta a extensao minima e maxima em centipoise (cP) sendo que nectar e definido como liquidos espessados entre 51 e 350 cP; mel entre 351 e 1750 cP e pudim acima de 1750 cP.
A fim de determinar a concentracao de agente espessante necessario para a adicao a formulacao, a viscosidade aparente em centipoise (cP) foi medida em viscosimetro Brookfield, modelo DV-II+PRO, com diferentes concentracoes de goma de guar, variando de 0,4% a ate 2,0%, dissolvido em agua destilada.
The experiments have been conducted at room temperature of 20[degrees]C using safrasol D80 oil density 800 kg/[m.sup.3] and dynamic viscosity of 1.77centi-poise, tap water with dynamic viscosity of 1 centipoise and 1000 kg/[m.sup.3] density and air with dynamic viscosity of 0.000018 Pas and 1.3 kg/[m.sup.3] density.
Models are available to handle capacities up to 150 lit/min and viscosities up to100,000 centipoise.
The viscosities range of the products was 1.04-1.26 centipoise at 50-80 o C.
The Cyrano Oil Field, situated in only about 15m water depth, is a relatively shallow (circa 700m deep subsea), low pressure, low permeability reservoir filled with challenging biodegraded 23 degree API heavy oil with a viscosity of 3.95 centipoise (cp) and with a small gas cap.
For a 10 percent by weight solution of the polymer grouts have a viscosity of 1.2 centipoise (water: 1.0 centipoise), and densities of 1.04 and 1.08 gram per cubic centimeter (water: 1.00 gram/cubic centimeter), respectively.
Viscous products (with apparent viscosities of less than 15,000 centipoise) and suspension products can be handled by B/F/S machines with specially designed product fill systems.
The atomizing nozzles can coat, cool, treat and paint a variety of products using compressed air and liquids with a viscosity of up to 300 centipoise. Used with water, atomizing nozzles evenly cool hot items in automated process.
He has expanded the number of groups covered in the 2000 first edition, but also added a bacteriological positioning systems in which the oxidation-reduction potential (in millivolts) serves as the longitudinal x axis and the viscosity of the water within the consormial biomass, measured in log centipoise, represents the latitudinal y axis.
"Our airless pumps have proven effective at dispensing products of at least 65,000 centipoise (CPS)," she adds, referring to the unit of measure used to calculate the amount of force necessary to move a layer of liquid.
