Converting High-Molecular-Weight Polymer Emulsions Into Dry Form

A company that supplies chemicals, including inverse emulsions that consist of a very high- molecular-weight, water-soluble polymer dispersed in a continuous oil phase, is seeking technologies that can convert these emulsions to powdered form without losing any of the polymer properties. Known technologies include spray-drying and precipitation. Precipitation processes are based upon the water and oil being soluble in some polar solvents, while the high-molecular- weight polymer is insoluble in these solvents.
