  • Mathematical modelling of thin layer drying of fresh green pea (Pisum sativum) husk

    Thin layer green pea husk (pericarp) drying characteristics were evaluated in a laboratory scale tray dryer. The drying experiments were carried out at 65, 70, 75 and 80°C. Mathematical models were tested to fit drying data of green pea husk. The drying process of green pea husk occurred mainly during a falling rate period except for a very short accelerating period at the beginning. ...

  • Effect of mixing, tempering and multistep thin layer drying on milling quality of parboiled paddy

    Convective air drying studies were conducted on a laboratory model thin layer dryer. The parameters studied were 70-150°C drying air temperature, 0.5-2 m/s air velocity and 5-20 cm grain bed depth. The effects of mixing, tempering and multistep drying process on milling quality were evaluated. Mixing, tempering, multistep drying and control of grain temperature enhanced the milling quality while ...

  • Exergetic performance assessment of plug flow fluidised bed drying process of rough rice

    Exergy analysis of rough rice drying process in laboratory–scale plug flow fluidised bed dryer was carried out. The drying experiments were conducted to assess the effects of inlet drying air temperature, feed mass flow rate and weir height on energy efficiency, exergy destruction, exergy efficiency, entropy generation, improvement potential rate and sustainability index. The energy and exergy ...

  • Case study - Keeping ethanol production green

    OVERVIEW Originally published in Pollution Engineering Magazine. In an effort to reduce the world’s dependence on fossil fuels, there has been a major push towards alternatives. Ethanol has been at the forefront of this movement because it reduces greenhouse gas emissions from automobiles and its production has a positive net energy balance. The homegrown fuel also ...

  • Case study - SP, Technical Research Institute of Sweden

    Customer: SP, Technical Research Institute of Sweden Project: WetESP for Fire Laboratory Many fire tests are made in full scale. Example for fire tests can be engine rooms, vehicles, store houses, compartments etc. Most of the tests will include ignite phase, full fire and extinguishing. The ignite phase is sooting, full fire will give high temperatures ...

  • Remediation of mercury contaminated industrial site for future expansion - case study

    70,000 tons of mercury contaminated soil and building rubble have to be cleaned in an industrial facility in the south of France until 2013. For the realization of this remediation work, an econ industries VacuDry® 12,000 has been in operation since early 2011. After the treatment the mercury free soils can be re-used on-site as building material. A similar but smaller econ industries ...

  • Vaccu.Lan for Green

    You're building a 'green' science building, and some of your laboratories require vacuum support. How do you provide vacuum for those labs? You can't use an oil-sealed rotary vane vacuum pumps in the labs. The oil mist would contaminate the laboratory air, and the noise pollution makes the working environment unpleasant. The pump oil would quickly be contaminated by biological and chemical ...

  • Top 10 residential green building trends to watch in 2012

    Here's a list of some top trends that will help accelerate growth in the residential market, as compiled by the Earth Advantage Institute. Urban density. Filling in the spaces is the name of the game as homeowners and builders opt to create more living space through the construction of accessory dwelling units (ADUs), laneway homes (bordering the back lane behind the main house), ...

  • Photovoltaics: Basic Design Principles and Components

    If you are thinking of generating your own electricity, you should consider a photovoltaic (PV) system—a way to generate electricity by using energy from the sun. These systems have several advantages: they are cost-effective alternatives in areas where extending a utility power line is very expensive; they have no moving parts and require little maintenance; and they produce electricity ...

  • Energy Efficiency, Pollution Prevention, and the Bottom Line

    Introduction For many years, efforts to promote energy efficiency and pollution prevention (P2) traveled on parallel paths. Most energy efficiency advocates considered only the energy savings aspects of their projects and most proponents of P2 did not include energy on their list of sources of pollution. More recently, the two groups promoting energy efficiency and P2 have begun to realize the ...

  • What is the difference between Rotary Vane and Diaphragm vacuum pumps?

    Most laboratories will have a vacuum pump. They are widely used across labs of all disciplines for a range of tasks from basic filtrations or evacuating a desiccator right up to use with large equipment such as vacuum ovens or rotary evaporators. The two most common types are rotary vane or diaphragm pumps – but ...
