  • Analysis of Na, K, Ca and Mg in Mineralwater using the Microsampling Method

    Sodium, Potassium, Calcium, and Magnesium belong to the essential mineral substances in the human organism. These elements take influence in the generation of enzymes and hormones, control the osmotic pressure in tissues and body fluids and are important for the exchange procedures in the cell membranes. In this application, the control of Na, K, Ca and Mg in a variety of mineral waters has been ...

  • Comparative analysis of modern control and AI–based control for maintaining constant ambient temperature

    The objective of this paper is to study various control techniques in order to maintain constant ambient temperature by controlling the position of gas solenoid valve and expansion valve that control the volume of gas flow to the burner and volume of cool air flow into the room. In order to control the room temperature conventional P, PI, PID, model reference control (MRC), fuzzy logic control ...

  • Drosrite extensive on-site hot dross treatment tests

    DROSRITE is a salt-free process for the recovery of metal from dross. In addition to producing a salt-free residue, it does not produce any CO2 or NOx gases. The process is highly energy efficient, extracting heat from energy in the residue and, thus, it does not require an external heat source such as a plasma torch, an electric arc or a gas or oil burner. A DROSRITE pilot unit built by ...

  • How to prolong the service life of biomass fired boiler

    Because of the shortage of energy and environmental deterioration caused by the extensive use of fossil fuel,biomass fired boiler has played a more and more important role in the industrial boilers.Therefore,we need to focus on the following aspects of work to ensure its normal operation and prolong its service life: ...

  • `Sensitivity of Condensable Particulate Matter Speciation on Predicted Visibility Impacts – Case Study,` presented at the NCASI West Coast Conference, September 2005

    Introduction This paper evaluates a realistic case study for an existing major emission source that is required to evaluate visibility impacts at a nearby federally-protected Class I area. The fictitious source is a 1960's era coal-fired electric generating unit (EGU) characterized as a pulverized coal-fired, dry bottom, wall-fired boiler equipped with PM and NOx controls (i.e., ...
