  • Evaluation of groundwater quality and assessment of scaling potential and corrosiveness of water supply networks, Iran

    The aim of this study was to determine the corrosion and scaling potential of water supply sources in a province in eastern Iran. In this cross-sectional study, 879 samples were taken to evaluate the water quality characteristics during 12 months (2013–2014). Five indices, Langelier, Ryznar, Puckorius, Larson–Skold, and Aggressiveness, were programmed in Microsoft Excel. The results ...

  • The Evolution of Collector Monitoring Systems

    The vast majority of chain and flight collectors in operation throughout the world do not have any form of monitoring system installed to protect against operational failure. Traditional safety devices consist of a shear pin sprocket device, with a limit switch, designed to protect the drive system if a load or torque exceeds the working load of the  ...

  • Impact of Corrosion on Electronic Equipment

    Corrosion is the destruction of metals through reaction with compounds in their environment. It is a natural process because compounds such as oxides, sulphides and chlorides are formed and these are stabler than pure metals. Electronic circuits and components are omnipresent in our environment. Until recently, the thousands of soldered joints that an electronic circuit contains were ...
