Determination of the Viscosities and Specific Gravities of the Oils in Samples of Athabasca Bituminous Sand

The difficulty of making viscosity and specific gravity determinations on the oil in Athabasca bituminous sand is that there is no method available for getting the oil out of the sand without altering it. A method of extracting the oil from the ... Show Abstract

The Role of Very Fine Mineral Matter in the Hot Water Separation Process as Applied to Athabasca Bituminous Sand

The clay present in bituminous sand as a natural constituent plays a key role in the hot water separation process. Some clay is necessary for satisfactory results; more than enough decreases the yield of oil. When bituminous sand is mixed and ... Show Abstract
