  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Laboratory scale tests of coal-based hydrogen production with CO2 capture in the aspect of clean coal technologies

    In the light of continuously increasing oil prices as well as stronger environmental regulations, an important issue becomes finding an alternative to fossil fuels. Scientists agree that hydrogen seems to be an ideal, price-competitive and environment-friendly future energy carrier. One of the most effective methods of hydrogen production is the process of steam gasification of coal to ...

  • 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 ...

  • MGP Testing (August 1, 2003)

    The overall objective of this project is to determine the feasibility of converting manufactured gas plant (MGP) waste to glass using an oxygen-fueled melter. The equipment used for demonstration purposes is located at the GlassPack Demonstration Facility, owned and operated by Minergy Corp of Milwaukee. Four samples of MGP waste from a Wisconsin location were provided by We Energies, also based ...

  • Advances in flashpoint testing: economic impact

    Flashpoint testing is one of the oldest methods of the ASTM D02 Committee on Petroleum Products and Lubricants, which was formed in 1904. The most prevalent standards are ASTM D56 (Tag Method), D92 (Cleveland Method), and D93 (Pensky-Martens Method). These classical techniques, commonly referred to as open-cup and closedcup methods, share a common principle: A test flame is lowered into the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Case study - Performance testing PAHs in asphalt in France

    ESITC – France: New regulations across Europe are requiring laboratory analysis for PAH content in asphalt. Researchers at ESITC’s lab are using the Sitelab TD-500D analyzer to monitor PAH levels in new, reclaimed and recycled asphalt. Maximum PAH limit for reuse is 50 ppm. In this study, three asphalt samples were ground down to different particle sizes and sent to four certified ...

  • Taking Fossil Fuels to the Next Level - Standards Underpin Extraction, Processing and Distribution

    To the average person, the oil and gas industry may appear simple — a matter of literally tapping into a natural resource and distributing it to customers. Of course the matter of extraction is rarely simple, and in the case of emergent hydraulic fracturing technology, it is particularly complex and capital-intensive. In fact, the world of petroleum and natural gas extraction, distribution ...
