Question: What is a good method to determine the viscosity of an emulsion?
Keywords: 0.5,to,50,cpviscosity,of,dispersed,phase
Answer: An emulsion is defined as a two-phase fluid with a continuous phase (larger volume fraction) and a dispersed phase (smaller volume fraction). The two phases are immiscible in one another. Emulsions are commonly used or encountered in the chemical processing industry. The relation shown here is very easy to use. The range of applicability is as follows:Viscosity of continuous phase = 0.5 to 50 cPViscosity of dispersed phase = 0.5 to 100 cPVolume fraction of continuous phase = 0.1 to 1.0Volume fraction of dispersed phase = 0.0 to 0.9Relation for Viscosity Determination
