Summary

In most ceramic processes, preparation of optimum ceramic slurries becomes a critical step. Some significant factors in processing ceramic slurries include specific gravity, viscosity, pH value, mixing speed and time, and slurry temperature. Several equations have been derived to be used for precisely adjusting specific gravity. Techniques are proposed to consistently measure the time-dependent viscosity of ceramic slurries in a manufacturing environment using a clay, water-based system as an example.
