Anionic Polyacrylamide (Emulsions)

Water-soluble, linear anionic polymer emulsion.

Anionic polyacrylamide is a synthetic, water-soluble polymer compound forming part of an emulsion, consisting of long, linear chains with negatively charged anionic groups. This emulsion-like property enhances its ability to mix thoroughly with water, making it an effective flocculant in water treatment, mining, and papermaking industries. Furthermore, its unique characteristics are beneficial in soil conditioning and oil recovery processes, where its emulsion nature helps in stabilizing mixtures and improving process efficiency.

Energy Sector

In the energy sector, anionic polyacrylamide, serving as part of an emulsion, is commonly utilized as a viscosity modifier in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) operations. It can elevate the viscosity of injected water, forming an emulsion that sweeps more oil from the reservoir, thereby boosting oil recovery rates. Moreover, as an emulsion, it acts as a friction reducer in the pipeline transportation of crude oil and natural gas, diminishing pumping costs and improving flow efficiency. In geothermal energy production, anionic polyacrylamide helps in forming emulsions that reduce the amount of suspended particles in geothermal fluids, thus enhancing heat transfer efficiency and protecting equipment. For oil field cementing, it serves as a fluid loss additive within an emulsion, minimizing water loss from cement slurries to surrounding formations. This application bolsters the integrity and strength of the cement sheath, ensuring zonal isolation and support for the well casing, thereby enhancing the well’s durability and safeguarding against fluid migration and collapse.

Water Treatment

Anionic polyacrylamide, integral to emulsion-based systems, is extensively deployed in water treatment as a flocculant to purge suspended solids, turbidity, and various contaminants from water. By promoting particle aggregation into larger clumps, it simplifies removal, enhances water clarity, alleviates filtration system burden, and uplifts water quality. This polymer emulsion also excels in treating industrial and municipal wastewater from sectors like papermaking, mining, and food processing. It boosts the performance of settling tanks, augments solid-liquid separation, and minimizes sludge volume, rendering wastewater treatment more efficient and economically viable.

Pulp & Paper

Anionic polyacrylamide, functioning as part of an emulsion, is widely utilized in the pulp and paper industry as a retention and drainage aid throughout the papermaking process. This emulsion enhances paper strength and curtails production expenses by elevating the retention of fine particles and fillers within the paper sheet. Furthermore, it accelerates drainage rates and slashes water use by boosting water removal efficiency from the paper sheet. Anionic polyacrylamide, in its emulsion form, also serves as a flocculant in wastewater treatment from paper mills, facilitating the elimination of suspended solids and mitigating environmental impact.
