Abstract

This paper present experimental study conducted on rheology of hydroxyethyl cellulose (polymer) based foams. The effects of foam quality, wall-slip, and polymer concentration on foam rheology have been experimentally investigated using a circulating flow loop. Foam quality and flow rate were varied from 50 to 80 percent and 1 to 52 L/min, respectively. To identify the existence of wall-slip, tests were performed using different diameter (13.4, 19.6 and 31.8 mm ID) pipe viscometers. Experimental results show expected trends; pressure loss increased with increasing flow rate and reduced with increasing pipe diameter. Slight wall-slip was observed in the small diameter viscometer. However, the measurements obtained from other viscometers do not indicate wall-slip. All tested foams exhibited strong non-Newtonian behavior, which increases with foam quality and polymer concentration. The rheology of foams best fits the power-law fluid model. Applying regression analysis, new correlations have been developed to predict rheology of polymer-based foams.
