Studies on sedimentation of asphaltene deposits in distillation residues

Authors: 
Aneta Lorek and Maciej Paczuski

In this work, experimental methods used for the evaluation of stability of solids in liquids dispersions, are presented. For the characterization of dispersion components, modern analytical techniques, such as tensiometry, scanning and static turbidimetry, have been applied. The influence of selected surface active substances on the dispersion stability was demonstrated.
