  • Moisture in Oils: The Three-Headed Beast

    Abstract Moisture contamination in in-service lube oils is perhaps one of the most destructive forms of engine corrosion second only to particle contamination.  Water contamination in oil can be categorized into three forms of water; Free, emulsified, and dissolved.  All forms of water have direct consequences to the oil and gears of the engine, but indirect consequences as ...

  • Analysis of fire behaviour simulations over Spain with WRF-FIRE

    Wildland fire spread and behaviour are complex phenomena owing to both the number of involved physico-chemical factors, and the non-linear relationship between variables. Spain is plagued by forest and brush fires every summer, when the extremely dry weather sets in along with high temperatures. The use of fire behaviour models requires the availability of high resolution environmental and fuel ...

  • Argon and Nitrogen in Glove Boxes and Blanketed Chambers case study

    Application Moisture is measured in argon or nitrogen when it is used as a blanketing gas in glove boxes and other blanketed applications. Problem The presence of moisture in the blanket gas for a glove box causes serious contamination problems especially when welding or conducting moisture-sensitive chemical reactions. Moisture causes product contamination, ...

  • Hydrogen annealing ovens case study

    Application Moisture is measured in hydrogen annealing ovens. Problem Hydrogen gas is used in annealing furnaces manufacturing stainless steel and other metal parts. High-moisture concentrations in the hydrogen will oxidize the metal, resulting in an unusable product with a surface finish that is too dark. Equipment Any ...

  • Heat treatment of steels and other metals case study

    Application Moisture is measured in the blanketing gases that are used in the treatment of steel. Problem Inert blanketing gases are required during the heat treatment of steels to prevent oxidation of the metal product. At heat-treating temperatures, moisture and oxygen will readily react with the metal to form an undesirable metal-oxide coating on the ...

  • Hydrogen-cooled electric generators case study

    Application Moisture contamination is measured in the hydrogen gas used to cool large stationary electric generators. Problem Hydrogen is used to cool the bearings and other rotating parts of large stationary electric generators. Hydrogen is the best choice for a cooling gas because of its unique combination of high thermal conductivity and low viscosity. In ...

  • 10 things you need to know about EPDM waterproofing membranes

    Waterproofing membranes or strips of EPDM rubber used on cladding, facades and for isolating joints around external window frames and doors of buildings, both commercial and residential. The rubber membrane works by keeping rainwater, damp and moisture ...

  • Moisture Audits & Analyser Performance Assessments at Woodside, Karratha - Case Study

    Woodside had been experiencing intermittent blockages in 4/5 S1406 LNG trains since September 2008 and had been unable to pinpoint the source of the problems. Repeated hydrate formations were leading to reduced productivity and the existing process monitoring instrumentation had failed to confirm moisture breakthrough on the beds. The site's existing Panametrics portable moisture analysers had ...

  • Northern Gulf Coast Government Building case study

    Client: Federal Courthouse Location: Northern Gulf Coast  Completion: Sept 2005 thru Dec 2005 Corrections Cost: $4 Million+ Key Project Team: Timothy Toburen, Don Brewer IET worked with two different restoration and remediation contractors to develop procedures allowing efficient  ...

  • Modeling the effect of extrusion parameters on density of biomass pellet using artificial neural network

    Abstract Background The relationships between the density of the biomass pellet and the related variables are very complicated and highly nonlinear, which make developing a single, general, and accurate mathematical model almost impossible. One of the most appropriate methods to solve these problems is the intelligent method. Shankar and Bandyopadhyay and Shankar et al. successfully used genetic ...

  • Continuous monitoring of moisture present inside a process chamber

    Problem Statement Moisture inside a process chamber is a big silent killer during wafer production. When production yield goes down, it is hard to pinpoint the source of the problem. Most of the time wafers need to be sent to labs for analysis, while production is stopped. If the problem is related to a high level of moisture inside the reactor, there are several factors that can cause ...

  • Measurement of moisture in HBr

    Introduction Moisture in corrosive gases will accelerate the rate of metal corrosion in gas supply systems which, in turn, can lead to their premature failure. For this reason, it is important to monitor moisture levels in these gases. FTIR is an effective way to monitor for moisture in these corrosive gases. In order to determine low levels of moisture in corrosive gases, it is ...

  • Monitoring the performance of moisture purifiers for process gases

    Problem Statement Moisture purifiers are a big aid in keeping moisture levels under control inside a process chamber. They are provided by manufacturers with certain life expectancies, which vary depending on the moisture content of the gas being purified. As a result, it is difficult to determine which gases have a high moisture content and which moisture purifier is becoming ...

  • Determining levels of moisture permeation through Kalrez and Chemraz o-ring material

    Problem Statement As the manufacturers of corrosive resistant gas cells we are often called upon to design a system for the detection of moisture in various gases. Most of our requests are to detect moisture in the low ppb levels. This can be a rather difficult task to accomplish when the surrounding environment has high levels of moisture (humidity). There are several steps that we ...
