  • Real Time TOC Analysis in Steam and Condensate

    Executive Summary Steam in petro/chemical plants could be contaminated with hydrocarbons (TOC = Total Organic Carbons) from various sources. In any case this is a sign for defects in the process, whether it they occur in the heat exchanger, the blow down vessel, the condensate recovery or other parts of the system. Conventional solutions to monitor such contaminations use TOC- ...

  • Optimization of resource and water recovery from urine

    This study deals with the feasibility and practicality to recover water and nutrients from fresh urine by means of evaporation/condensation. The evaporation process generated two distinct fractions: a condensate and a concentrate. The optimal percentage of evaporation (in volume) was found to be 80%, resulting in optimal condensate quality. Higher percentages of evaporation resulted in a ...

  • Thermo-catalytic degradation of low density polyethylene to liquid fuel over kaolin catalyst

    Waste low-density polyethylene samples were subjected to thermo-catalytic degradation using kaolin as catalyst in a batch reactor at temperature range of 400 to 500°C and atmospheric pressure. The quality and yield of the condensable product has been studied as a function of temperature and amount of catalyst. Both in thermal and catalytic degradation, the condensable fraction was less ...

  • It is the law (part L building regs) that in hard water areas a scale preventer must be placed before any new boiler installed

    Not many people know that .. to coin a famous phrase, but it reflects the increased cost of energy usage arising as a result of scaling caused by hard water. Traditionally water softeners’ might have been used for this purpose but there are increasing environmental concerns about the use of water softeners .. in parts of California they are now banned. Fluid Dynamics is the UK’s ...
