  • Remote metallographic examination of mixed carbide fuel of fast breeder test reactor in radiometallurgy laboratory

    Fast breeder test reactor (FBTR) uses unique, indigenously developed mixed carbide of plutonium and uranium (70% PuC + 30% UC) as fuel. The performance of the fuel was studied at different burn-ups by carrying out post-irradiation examinations (PIE) to facilitate prediction and extension of life for the indigenously developed fuel. As a part of PIE, remote metallography was carried out to study ...

  • Fuel Economy Guide

    How to Use this Guide How we get the fuel economy estimates The fuel economy estimates are the average of test results conducted for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The vehicles are driven by professional drivers in controlled laboratory conditions. The results are adjusted to account for differences between the controlled laboratory conditions ...


  • Methods of oil/fuel analysis

    PC GlobeCore can propose you to make a reclaiming test of yours example of fuel (oil) to verify the possibility of clean it. If the oil is contaminated and not suitable for use, filtration can be recommended. Or, you can also make this test by yourself using our laboratory/test-bench transformer oil vacuum regeneration system UVR. The regenerated samples exceeded yours expectations. Average ...

  • Vibration testing of fuel probes

    Aerial Refuelling The American Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey is a multimission, military, tilt rotor aircraft with both a vertical and short takeoff and landing capability. It combines the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the high-speed cruise performance of a long-range turboprop aircraft. But even though it is long-range, some missions require in-flight refuelling. The V-22 Osprey can ...

  • Aviation fuel cleanliness

    This autumn sees the launch of the second edition of the EI’s handbook, 1550; a title which has become a key industry reference for everyone involved in handling aviation fuel since the first edition was issued in 2007. Martin Hunnybun, EI Technical Team Manager – Fuels & Fuel Handling, describes the new content. With over 20 specified performance parameters, jet fuel is one of ...

  • Methanol blending is alternative fuel of the future

    The main objective of “alcohol fuel power” field is increase of fuel resources for transport by using right alternative  such as ethanol and methanol blending with gasoline, which unlike pure oil fuel, are characterized renewable and have unlimited sources of raw materials. Margin of oil (valuable hydrocarbonic raw materials for petrochemical productions) and also a power ...

  • Case study - EPH in soil with No. 6 fuel oil

    No. 6 fuel oils (heavy fuel oil, bunker C oil) is often used in industry for heat, steam or power generation. A consultant used Sitelab to investigate two different spill sites contaminated with subsurface plumes of NAPL resulting from leaking underground storage tanks (USTs). Soils were collected from borings using a drill rig and field screened for their EPH aromatic content. Split samples ...

  • CH#955 - Fuel Remediation, Difficult Location

    SITE OWNER: A Petroleum Jobber SITE SURVEY: Site and geological surveys had revealed a contaminated area down a gradient from the existing fuel tanks. If was further determined that the contamination was not from the existing tanks through precision testing. The borings described the contamination as resting between the 14 and 20 foot level below the ...

  • Bioremediation of Kerosene and Diesel Fuel in soil case study

    The United States has a large hazardous waste problem that is threatening both human health and the environment. Current analysis of the nearly 1,200 National Priority List (NPL) sites reveals that about 80% of the sites are contaminated with organic compounds. Clean-up of hazardous waste sites, as a national priority has accelerated the development of bioremediation technologies. Environmental ...

  • Co-firing Solid Recovered Fuels (SRFs) with brown coal in large-scale pulverised fuel power plants – a simulation approach

    The results of the numerical simulations performed in a pulverised fuel boiler co-firing coal and Solid Recovered Fuels (SRFs) are presented. SRFs are initially modelled as a mixture of two different fractions (biogenic and plastic) and further simplifications are proposed to save computational expenses. The SRF submodels are validated with available data obtained from a laboratory-scale ...

  • Explaining vehicle emissions – why do laboratory and road measurements differ?

    The road transport sector is a major contributor to Europe’s emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollution. For certain pollutants, vehicles can emit substantially higher emissions on the road than official emissions tested in laboratories. A report released today by the European Environment Agency (EEA) provides a non-technical guide that describes the reasons for these often significant ...

  • Technical note: An approximate examination of the effects of esterification on the EROEI of biodiesel fuels

    Heat balance calculations on esterification of plant oil to make biodiesel are performed using recently published information from a laboratory reactor. It is concluded that such energy is relatively small and that attempts to improve the EROEI of biodiesels should not focus on the esterification process. [Received: January 8, 2009; Accepted: September 25, 2009]Keywords: biodiesel, ...

  • Landfill leachate treatment and energy generation using microbial fuel cell

    The objective of this study is to investigate the feasibility of the usage of microbial fuel cell (MFC) technology for landfill leachate decomposition and power generation. Landfill leachate collected from landfills located in Northwest Florida was tested in a laboratory scale MFC to provide evidence that landfill leachate can be decomposed and electrons released from leachate decomposition in ...

  • Preliminary studies of lignocellulosics and waste fuels for fixed bed gasification

    This study was carried out to understand the decomposition behaviour of a range of biofuel and waste feedstock during gasification in a downdraft gasifier. A laboratory scale large sample thermogravimetric analyser (LSTA) is used which allows the data on burn-out characteristics of different fuel particles to be measured under agitated conditions. The conditions chosen simulate the combustion ...
