A new and improved radiotracer technique provides information on both the particulate concentration and the movement during sedimentation of monodispersed and binary mixtures. In studies of sedimentation with 44 and 62 μm ion exchange particles, several solids concentrations, three fluid viscosities, and three mixtures with different ratios of the two size particles, the results all lie close to a correlation proposed by Richardson and Zaki.
