Coanda Research is excited to announce that one of its lead Engineering Scientists, Dr. Clara Gomez, has been invited to present at the AICHE’s 2017 Process Development Symposium Toronto Ontario, June 6-8 2017.

Dr. Gomez, who is also Vice-President of the NAMF council, will present a paper in collaboration with Dr. Barry Bara from Syncrude Canada entitled: Scale Up of Fluid Fine Tailings Flocculation Using Dynamic Mixing. This paper highlights the advantages of using a Dynamic mixer to introduce non-Newtonian polymer flocculants into Fluid Fine Tailings streams through bench scale test all the way through to pilot scale experiments.

We now have a protocol and understanding that enables us to continue the development of dynamic mixing technology for tailings flocculation at small scales. This allows for efficient and cost effective development in the laboratory rather than at field scales” Dr. Gomez, Lead Engineering Scientist.
