Title Toner ink particle morphology in air-sparged hydrocyclone flotation deinking
Date 1996
Description A series of pulping and flotation deinking tests were performed using a pilot-scale air-sparged hydrocyclone (ASH) flotation cell and a toner ink printed furnish. Microscopy studies indicate ink particles in both the flotation accepts and rejects are relatively flat. Many of the ink particles appear to be brittle and easily broken into smaller fragments. In some cases, toner ink particle softening had occurred as indicated by partial fusion of ink particles. Despite this softening, environmental scanning electron microscope (ESEM) images suggest toner ink particles were not elongated by the high shear conditions associated with the airsparged cyclone flotation cell.
