Product Name: Anionic Polyacrylamide (APAM) Product Introduction: Anionic Polyacrylamide (APAM) is a high molecular weight polymer produced by the polymerization of acrylamide monomers. It features high molecular weight and abundant anionic functional groups, providing excellent performance in various applications. Performance Characteristics:
  1. High molecular weight: APAM has a molecular weight ranging from millions to tens of millions, offering excellent flocculation effects and significantly improving solid-liquid separation efficiency.
  2. Strong solubility: APAM can quickly dissolve in water, forming a transparent solution with good compatibility with various water qualities.
  3. Broad application scope: APAM is widely used in water treatment, petrochemical, mining and metallurgy, papermaking, textile, and other industries.
Main Applications:
  1. Water treatment: APAM can be used in urban sewage, industrial wastewater, domestic sewage, and drinking water treatment processes for flocculation precipitation, flotation, and other processes. It effectively reduces suspended solids and pollutant content, improving water quality.
  2. Petrochemical: APAM can be used as a drilling fluid, waterproofing agent, and thickener to improve drilling fluid performance, increase stability, and reduce drilling costs.
  3. Mining and metallurgy: In mineral extraction processes, APAM can effectively improve the flocculation effect of ore slurry, increase solid-liquid separation efficiency, reduce tailings concentration, and decrease environmental pollution.
  4. Paper industry: APAM can be used as a water retention agent, anti-electrolyte agent, and strength enhancer in the paper industry, improving paper strength and smoothness and reducing water consumption.
  5. Textile industry: APAM can be used as a dyeing auxiliary, flocculant, and fixing agent in the textile industry, enhancing dyeing uniformity and color fastness.
Usage Method:
  1. Anionic polyacrylamide should be dissolved into a 0.1%-0.3% aqueous solution before use. During the dissolution process, ensure uniform stirring to avoid clumping.
  2. Adjust the dosage according to specific conditions, typically ranging from 1-10ppm. The exact dosage should be adjusted based on actual water quality, treatment process, and equipment.
  3. The solution of anionic polyacrylamide should be prepared on-site before adding to ensure its activity and effectiveness.
  4. Stirring speed and time greatly affect flocculation performance. Maintain an appropriate stirring speed after adding the anionic polyacrylamide solution to maximize flocculation. Both excessive and insufficient stirring speeds will affect the flocculation effect.
  5. Anionic polyacrylamide can be used in combination with other flocculants, coagulant aids, etc., to improve flocculation. Specific usage methods and ratios should be adjusted through testing and based on actual conditions.
  1. Anionic polyacrylamide is a fine granular solid with strong hygroscopicity. Keep it dry and moisture-proof during storage and transportation.
  2. Anionic polyacrylamide solution has a certain viscosity; avoid mixing with other high-viscosity substances.
  3. When using anionic polyacrylamide, wear appropriate protective equipment to avoid inhalation, skin contact, and ingestion.
  4. If inhaled or ingested accidentally, seek immediate medical attention and inform the doctor about the exposure.
In summary, Anionic Polyacrylamide (APAM) has advantages such as high molecular weight, strong solubility, and a wide range of applications. It is widely used in water treatment, petrochemical, mining and metallurgy, papermaking, and textile industries. During usage, pay attention to factors like appropriate dosage
