Method for simultaneous measurement of mass loading and fluid property changes using a quartz crystal microbalance

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A method, using a quartz crystal microbalance, to obtain simultaneous measurement of solid mass accumulation and changes in liquid density-viscosity product. The simultaneous real-time measurements of electrical parameters yields that changes in surface mass can be differentiated from changes in solution properties. Two methods to obtain the admittance/frequency data are employed.
