Increased Loss Expectations: Loss expectations have increased mainly as a result of performance declines for the largest loan in the pool, Empire Hotel & Retail (15% of the pool), which is designated as a Fitch Loan of Concern (FLOC).
At the lower dosage of flocculant, there was not enough positive charge to neutralize the negative E1 colloids and the collision between the polymer chain and E1 colloids was also insufficient to form large flocs. The desirable flocculation performance always occurred at a relatively high dosage because the flocculation process completely finished in this condition.
As can be seen in Table 2, flocs numbers in bioreactor was relatively stable (AE1 column), although a slight increase after Hycol addition was observed.
The nature of the flocs depends on the concentration of added demulsifier F.
The international team analyzed flocs from nine polluted streams in Germany and California using a type of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy called [sup.27]Al magic-angle spinning, which detects different types of aluminum complexes in solids.
The flocs were imaged (sized) down to a lower resolution of approximately 2 [micro]m (10xobjective) using a Zeiss Axiovert 100 microscope interfaced with a 35 mm camera.
Dye testing confirmed that the polymer added into the plant flow was inadequately mixed to develop proper floc formation.
Retail Concentration: Approximately 49.4% of the remaining pool balance consists of loans secured by retail properties, including 10 properties in the top 15, three of which have been designated FLOCs (13.8%).
The retention aids promote the flocculation of fines and large fibres and the adsorption of mineral fillers on fibres or fibre flocs. Considering the rapidity with which water drainage and web forming occur after the pulp has been injected between the two wires of modern fast twin-wire formers, the kinetics of flocculation and adsorption induced by a retention system (single- or dual-component) is of crucial importance in determining its efficiency.
Researchers at Cranfield University and the University of Melbourne investigate the optimization of conventional coagulation and flocculation processes for the treatment of waters with elevated organic content, and measure the physical properties of flocs formed with different chemical coagulants.
These microflocs provide retention but enable higher levels of drainage compared with traditional flocculants that create larger, more difficult to dry flocs.
