  • Impact of heating method on the flocculation process using thermosensitive polymer

     Flocculation process based on water soluble polymers as flocculating agents is still intensively researched nowadays, despite the introduction of these materials about fifty years ago. There is a need to gain the full control of this process in order to obtain high efficiency and strictly define products. For that purpose new solutions are proposed like stimuli-responsive macromolecules. In ...

  • Difference between Heated and Non Heated Carpet Shampooers

    Choosing a carpet shampooer requires more than just checking the efficiency of the machine. It’s also important to consider whether you need a heated or a non-heated unit for cleaning. Carpet cleaning units can be extremely effective for a range of different carpets, especially if they use low-water flow technology for cleaning. These units will rely more on extraction powers and less on ...

  • Biofilm control strategies in industrial processing waters

    Bacterial biofilms cause a number of serious problems for industrial fluid processing operations. Mechanical blockages, impedance of heat transfer processes and microbially induced corrosion result in billions of dollars of losses each year. In engineered systems, such as cooling water systems, food processing, and other industrial applications possible risk to public health and product spoilage ...

  • Storing Heat Underground

    Underground thermal energy storage (UTES) is a system that uses inter-seasonal heat storage, storing excess heat from the summer for use in winter heating, and the cooling potential from winter for cooling in summer. A cost-effective, low-energy and low-risk proven renewable technology, UTES reduces carbon emissions by up to 60% and is becoming an increasingly popular choice for residential, ...

  • Contrasting suspended covers reveal the impact of an artificial monolayer on heat transfer processes at the interfacial boundary layer

    The highly variable performance of artificial monolayers in reducing evaporation from water storages has been attributed to wind speed and wave turbulence. Other factors operating at the interfacial boundary layer have seldom been considered. In this paper, two physical shade covers differing in porosity and reflectivity were suspended over 10 m diameter water tanks to attenuate wind and wave ...

  • Class a biosolids production at eastern municipal water district using heat pasteurization

    Since 1998, the Eastern Municipal Water District (District) has developed and successfully operated a heat pasteurization facility to treat extended aeration waste activated sludge (WAS) from the Perris Valley Regional Water Reclamation Facility (PVRWRF). The treatment train uses hot water to sludge spiral heat exchangers and a patented continuous-feed, complete mix pasteurization vessel (heated ...


  • Food Processing: Odor Control in Edible Oil Processing

    Abstract: The problems with odor around a typical edible oil deodorizer are discussed in detail, and a three-step solution to eliminate these problems is presented. The three steps are a distillate recovery system which recovers most of the fatty acid in the deodorizer vapor discharge as a valuable byproduct, a closed loop barometric cooling water system which keeps the fatladen ...

  • Nuclear desalination by waste heat utilisation in an advanced heavy water reactor

    The use of thorium for nuclear power generation is an important element of the Indian atomic energy programme. The design and development of the Advanced Heavy Water Reactor (AHWR) is a step in this direction. Intensive design activity is underway to set up a 300-MWe AHWR. The design of the AHWR incorporates several features to simplify the design and to eliminate certain systems and components, ...

  • Forest clearing, water loss, and land surface heating as development costs

    This paper documents the effects of development in Kenya and its subsequent influence on surface temperatures. The assumption is that deforestation leads to a decrease in evapotranspiration, and causes an observed temperature increase. The study was realised in the Mau Forest of Central Kenya, where extensive deforestation over the past 20 years has caused changes in climate and hydrology. The ...

  • Recovery of Precious Metal Catalysts - A New Process Using Supercritical Water Oxidation

    Up to now, the recovery of precious metals used as catalysts in chemical processes has involved the use of incineration. Now, however, a British-Swedish joint venture has developed a process which uses supercritical water oxidation instead, which provides many economic and environmental advantages. Precious metals are used extensively in catalysts in a wide range of industrial chemical processes. ...

  • Pumps for synthetic heat-transfer liquids

    As soon as the temperature in a heat-transfer system becomes too high for water, a plant operator must choose between petroleum-based or synthetic oils as the heat-transfer liquid. When modern petroleum oils are used, systems with feed temperatures up to about 300 °C can stay in service for their entire service life with one filling and with virtually no maintenance. Once feed temperatures ...
