ABOUT DOMINO

DOMINO is an industrial project run by BHR Group aiming to develop process design procedures based on the findings of the research programme.  You may find more about membership benefits, project deliverables and meeting, DOMINO Staff and Consultants on this website or contact us

Technical Focus

  • Incorporation of nanoparticles and nanoclays (without settling)
  • Break up of nanoparticle clusters
  • Delamination of nanoclays
  • Nanoemulsions
  • Dispersion rheology
  • Stabilisation
  • Numerical modelling (flow within the process devices and break up of nanoparticle clusters)
  • Selection of process equipment and design


Facilities and techniques

The project makes use of a broad spectrum of process devices:

  • In-line and batch rotor-stators
  • Ultrasonic disperser
  • Stirred bead mill
  • Microfluidics
  • Mechanically agitated tanks


as well as analytical equipment:


  • Particle sizers (LD or PCS)
  • Rheometers
  • Zetapotential (ELS)
  • Electron microscopy
  • Immersion tests for wettability
  • X-Ray Diffraction



Project findings and future workplans are disseminated and discussed
during

  • Project meetings held twice a year through confidential reports
  • Training seminars and sessions.
