  • How conditions affect cookies and air pollution control solutions

    Chocolate chip cookies are one of my favorite treats. Butter, sugar, eggs, flour, vanilla, and, of course, chocolate chips. Combine the ingredients together and you get a delicious cookie. Somehow, using the same ingredients the cookies do not always turn out the same. Sometimes they are thinner and crispier. Other times, they are soft and chewy. After watching cooking shows, I have come to ...

  • A quick guide to oil analysis for engine test applications

    Reliability testing is a very important component of new engine development. Engineers need to fully understand and chart the engine lifetime performance under a variety of conditions before mass production may be considered. Many important performance data parameters are collected in real time through the many different types of sensors that are connected to the engine in the test cell and oil ...

  • Influence of the Stirring Mechanism on the Precision of the Fusion for VITRIOX GAS and ELECTRIC

    Introduction Homogenization of the melt is an important aspect of sample preparation for X-ray fluorescence analysis using fusion. Whether the fused bead breaks or remains mechanically stable after cooling, depends largely on the homogenization. Once a stable fused bead has been obtained, it is only possible to judge if the sample is truly homogeneously dissolved in the flux by way of ...

  • Effects of meteorological conditions on concentration of air pollutants in Delhi

    Air pollution in Delhi is a serious environmental problem. In this paper, the effects of meteorological conditions on local air quality are quantitatively assessed by determining the relationships between concentrations of Suspended Particulate Matter (SPM), Respirable Suspended Particulate Matter (RSPM), sulphur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) with meteorological parameters on monthly ...

  • Daytime ventilation conditions in Buenos Aires city, Argentina

    From routinely available observational data, the daytime ventilation conditions in Buenos Aires city have been studied. The climatological behaviour was analysed. The study included the effects of local conditions, such as the coastal location, the urban features and the influence of air humidity on the characteristic parameters of the dispersive capability of the atmosphere. The frequencies of ...

  • Valves in Water System of Heating Air Condition

    Common valves in water system of heating air condition include gate valve, globe valve and butterfly valve.   Gate vale For its moderate length, rotary adjusting rod and good regulating performance, gate valve is widely utilized in large caliber pipes.   Globe valve Globe valve is suitable for small caliber pipes for its long length, ...

  • Thermal comfort study of air-conditioned university laboratories

    In tertiary education institutions, good indoor air quality (IAQ) provides a conducive environment for teaching and learning activities. A field study on the environmental conditions and occupants’ comfort was carried out in six laboratories at Universiti Sains Malaysia. The study evaluates the current thermal comfort conditions using objective measurement and subjective assessment. The measured ...

  • What`s cool about air conditioning

    Conservationists often mock Americans for their love affair with the car. But the air conditioner appears to be a growing rival for our affection. Twenty years ago only about one-quarter of US residences had central air conditioning; by 2005 it was up to 62%, according to the United States Census Bureau. ...

  • Exergy analysis of advanced transcritical CO2 air conditioning cycles

    The energy and exergy balance methods were performed on two advanced transcritical CO2 air conditioning cycles presented in the literature. In addition to the basic transcritical CO2 air conditioning cycle which has five main components, compressor, gas cooler, evaporator, expansion valve and internal heat exchanger, two advanced cycles are investigated; both have two-stage compressor (low stage ...

  • Performance evaluation of multi-passive solar applications of a non air-conditioned building

    This paper describes the performance evaluation of solar passive cooling techniques such as solar shading insulation of building components and air exchange rate. Thermal performance of the non air-conditioned building is predicted by analysing a one-dimensional numerical model. Numerical calculation has been made corresponding to three different climates, viz. composite, hot and dry and warm and ...

  • A life cycle greenhouse gas assessment of remanufactured refrigeration and air conditioning compressors

    Remanufacturing can importantly reduce the resource intensity and increase the eco-efficiency of product systems by utilising recovered end of life (EOL) parts. A life cycle assessment (LCA) has been carried out to determine the greenhouse gas emissions from the production of a remanufactured compressor vs. a new original equipment manufacturer (OEM) compressor. The remanufacturing consisted of ...

  • Exergetic performance of a cylindrical methane–air microcombustor under various inlet conditions

    The entropy generation analysis is performed on a methane–air cylindrical microcombustor. The combustor is studied under different fuel–air equivalence ratios and two different inlet velocities. The results reveal that entropy generation due to heat transfer has the highest contribution to the total exergy destruction. Besides, the chemical and mixing entropy generations have the next greatest ...

  • Model and experimental analysis of the dynamic behaviour of air conditioning plant pipelines

    This paper presents a model to describe the transmission of vibrations through the pipelines of automotive air conditioning plants. It is known that vibration propagating from the compressor to the other system components can affect both acoustical and structural behaviour. In this study a frequency domain description is purposed, using a transfer matrix formulation to study the pipe dynamics. ...

  • Policy influence of formaldehyde exposure risk in air-conditioned office environment

    Long-term measurement of indoor air quality (IAQ) over a general community could be a good approach to evaluate the influence of policy on pollutant exposure levels. However, this approach requires considerable measurement efforts and in many circumstances an updated data set will not be available. Formaldehyde is an indoor pollutant that presents a health hazard to building occupants in the long ...
