Coagulants are used to effectively separate fine suspended particles that cause pollution from water. Minute particles that do not readily separate from water can be separated by coagulating them into easily separated flocs. KAPL is a coagulant manufacturer/ coagulant supplier in India. CRISTOL Coagulants are recommended for use in the manufacture of Synthetic rubber such as SBR, NBR etc. These are very effective in emulsion breaking and production of rubber from latex. It is useful in coagulation of particles and clarification. It is particularly useful in the production of white rubber because of its low colour.
Synthetic rubber crumbs coagulated from latex using CRISTOL coagulant chemicals are porous in nature and hence, the mother liquor can be easily expelled. Further, the rubber crumbs can be effectively washed with minimal quantity of water.
High porosity of wet rubber crumbs obtained using CRISTOL coagulants enables the rubber to be dried at lower temperatures and at a faster rate. In the process, there is considerable energy saving and increase in the production rate.
The mother liquor after separation of the coagulated crumbs is clear and hence can largely be recycled thereby saving chemical and water consumption; and also reducing load on the effluent system. Thus CRISTOL-CPA 700 when used in the manufacture of Synthetic rubbers would give the following benefits.
• Effective separation of polymer and aqueous layers.
• Lower dosage levels.
• Clarity of aqueous layer / mother liquor.
• Effective coagulation and faster settling.
