Abstract

In this study, the growth and dissolution rates of closely sized KCl crystals that were classified with respect to their separation voltages in an electrostatic separator were investigated in the presence or K2SO4, CH3COOK, NH4Cl and BaCl2 additives, having common cations or anions. Separation voltages were taken as a measure of surface potential. The experiments were carried out in a typical stagnant medium type single crystal measurement system.
