Why aerogel powder has the function of separating slurry
What is Aerogel Powder?Aerogel, also known as a wet gel or hydrogel, is a porous material that can be made by removing the liquid from the gel and replacing it with air. Aerogel KNFW silica is an aerogel with low density and low thermal conductivity. It has a high specific surface area as well as high adsorption. High purity and surface activity have been used to produce building insulations, industrial insulations, polymer material, aerospace and everyday chemical industries.
Characteristics and uses of aerogel powder
Aerogel has a light, translucent blue color and is very light. People also call it solid smoke. Stephen Jones, material scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, is the man who developed this new aerogel. Its main component, silicon dioxide, is glass. But because it's 99.8% air and not glass, its density is just one-thousandth that of glass. Aerogel is a very strong material that appears "weak". It will not melt until it reaches temperatures of 1200°C. Aerogel's thermal conductivity is also low and its refractive indices are very low. In addition, it has a 39-fold higher insulation capacity than glass fiber. These characteristics have made aerogel an indispensable material for space exploration. It is used as thermal insulation for the Russian "Peace' space station and American "Mars Pathfinder probe".
In the research on fractal structure. As a controllable structure of nanoporous materials, the apparent density of silicon Aerogel depends on its scale size. In a particular scale range, its apparent density has scale invariance, that is, it has a selfsimilar structure and decreases with increasing scale. In the study on the dynamics of aerogel structure, it is also shown that the three excitation areas have significantly different dispersion relation in different scales. They correspond to the excitation phonon, particle, and fractal modes. Aerogels can be prepared in a way that changes the correlation length up to two orders of size. The best materials to study fractal structures, and their dynamic behavior, are silicon aerogels.
Prices of aerogel powder
Aergel powder's price is also affected by the size of the particles and its purity. The price of a large quantity will be lower. On our official website, you can find the price of Aerogel Powder.
