  • What is the difference between open and closed cup flash point?

    Flash point tests are used to show the lowest temperature that a volatile substance is vapourised into a flammable gas. This is done by introducing a source of ignition, then waiting for the “flash” where the substance is ignited. There are a wide range of methods but most are available in open or closed cup formats – ...

  • Modelling oil degradation in electric transformer oil under typical loads

    In testing transformer oils for durability, it is desirable to use typical transformer operating conditions with appropriate allowances for factor of safety against temperature and voltage. The kinetics of degradation of used type II transformer oil with original flash point of 148?C, pour point of 51?C, and water content of 4 ppm was investigated. Assuming that the oil temperature in models Pr01 ...

  • Chemical storage buildings isolate hazardous liquids and minimize damage from spills

    The improper storage of corrosives and flammable liquids is the leading cause of spills that can result in damage to facilities and impact worker safety. One of the most effective practices to help minimize damage from chemical spills is to isolate the various chemical hazards. Since knowledge of chemical compatibility is critical, it is important to understand that there are two major types of ...

  • Advances in desalination technology

    Seawater desalination has been the cornerstone of the Middle East's water supply strategy since the mid-1950s, and most of the installed desalination capacity is still provided by multistage flash evaporators. But, desalination is changing. In fact, the term "desalination" is no longer limited to seawater applications; desalination technologies are now routinely employed to desalinate brackish ...
