Treatment of aqueous suspensions

(57)    Abstract

A process in which a suspension comprising dispersed particulate material in anaqueous medium is transferred as a fluid to a deposition area, then allowed to stand and rigidity, and in which rigidification is improved whilst retaining the fluidity of the suspension during transfer, by combining with the suspension during transfe r a rigidifying amount of a treatment system which comprises

i)    a water-soluble synthetic polymer and

ii)    a water-soluble natural or seminatural polymer.

Improved rigidification can be achieved, including dose efficiency especially in regard to the amount of synthetic polymer required. In addition

improvements in the clarity of liquor released from the suspension can be achieved.
