  • European waters - assessment of status and pressures

    EEA 2012 'State of Europe's water' assessments 2012 is the European year of water in which the European Commission published its 'Blueprint to safeguard Europe's waters' (referred to hereafter as the Blueprint) comprising reviews of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) (2000/60/EC), water scarcity and drought and adaptation to climate change policies. To accompany and inform the blueprint, ...

  • A CFD study of the effect of venturi geometry on high pressure wet gas metering

    Venturi meter is increasingly being preferred as wet gas flow meter because of its simple construction and ease of operation. It has been found that the performance of venturi in single phase gas is very different from that of water. In this work, with a view to optimise the design, the effects of diameter, diameter ratio and convergent angle on the performance of a venturi meter for wet gas ...

  • Use of Side Drains in Triaxial Testing at Moderate to High Pressures

    Side drains are used in triaxial tests to increase the rate of consolidation and equalize pore water pressures within the specimen. However, the efficiency of the side drains has been shown to be a function of time and effective confining pressure.This paper presents the results of (1) a mail survey on side drain practice, which indicates that many laboratories use side drains not recommended by ...

  • Replacement of Hot Caustic Paint Stripping Process with High Pressure Water Jet System: Ford Australia

    Ford Australia Ltd replaced an existing hot caustic paint stripping process, used for cleaning car skids, with a high pressure water jet system. This project has resulted in annual savings in the order of $300,000 from reduced chemical, energy and waste disposal costs. Significant improvements in paint quality were also achieved through the ability to clean the skids on a more regular basis than ...

  • A Comparison between Steam and Hot Water Pressure Washers

    Steam pressure washer machines are a gradual extension of hot water pressure washers. The main difference lies in the output temperature. While steam pressure cleaners provide an output of 330 degrees Fahrenheit, hot water machines offer an output pressure of 210 degrees Fahrenheit only. The other important specifications, such as output pressure and technologies present, do not change much ...
