floc

(flok),
A colloquial term for the product of a flocculation, that is, the separation of the disperse phase of a colloidal suspension into discrete, usually visible particles, as in certain serologic precipitin tests.

n.
A flocculent mass formed in a fluid through precipitation or aggregation of suspended particles.

floccule

An older term for a fluffy precipitate seen in a flocculation-type antigen-antibody reaction.

The flocculation test contained a rapid mixing (200 rpm 1 min), a slow mixing (50 rpm, 15 min), and a settling (10 min) and the size of the formed E1 floc was measured using a laser diffraction instrument (Mastersizer 2000, Malvern, UK).
The results of experiments have indicated negative impact of used bioreactor construction on large flocs numbers.
The fractal dimensions were evaluated for flocs formed under the influence of low (~ 5 ppmv) and high (~ 30 ppmv) concentrations of chemical type F (Figure 9).
Table 1 demonstrates that flocs are a significant component of the MRD's SS transport regime: close to 100% (by volume) of the SS is transported as flocculated material.
At the same time, Phase II testing showed that a higher metal salt dosage was needed during the daytime "hot spot" period when floc formation was poor.
The second FLOC is Port Charlotte Town Center (5.0%), which is secured by fee and leasehold interests in a 489,695-sf regional mall located in Port Charlotte, FL.
Therefore, the particles must get closer to aggregate and thus, the flocs formed are smaller and more compact.
The largest FLOC, Vintage Park (4.8%), is secured by a 341,107-sf open-air anchored shopping center located in Houston, TX.
Fitch Loans of Concern: Fitch has designated two loans in the top 10 (6.3% of pool) as Fitch Loans of Concern (FLOC) due to declining occupancy from tenants vacating and downsizing.
The largest FLOC is the Hulen Mall (9.5%), which is secured by a 400,968-sf collateral portion of a 997,538-sf two-level regional mall located in Fort Worth, TX.
Fitch Loans of Concern: Fitch has designated four loans (11.1% of pool) as Fitch Loans of Concern (FLOCs), including three of the top 15 loans (10.6%), one of which is in special servicing (1.7%).
Early addition provides more opportunity for breakage of chemically induced fiber flocs, possibly leading to more uniform formation.
