Optimization of the locations of side streams in a filter cake washing process

A macroscopic model was developed to perform optimization studies for countercurrent, nonequilibrium, displacement filter cake washing on a belt filter with incoming side streams. Each washing stage was assumed to contain a number of perfect mixing cells connected in series. The optimum locations of the side streams, which yielded the minimum exit solute concentration for the washed cake, were evaluated. Three cases were considered: Incoming side stream added to the wash liquor flow, incoming side stream added to the cake flow and incoming side streams added to both flows simultaneously. A parameter study was performed systematically to determine the effect of washing parameters on the optimum side stream locations.


Mathematical modeling of thermal decomposition of coal
Guruz, GA; Uctepe, U; Durusoy, T (Elsevier BV, 2004-06-01)
Pyrolysis, as a first step in all thermochemical coal conversion processes, has been investigated in detail over the years in order to evaluate the kinetic data and to establish reliable models for the complex reaction scheme. Since coal pyrolysis is not a single reaction but rather a multiplicity in different time intervals for isothermal pyrolysis, or in different time and temperature intervals for the case of heat-up, any set of parameters cannot be expected to represent data accurately over a wide range...

A data reduction technique is introduced for the evaluation of second virial coefficients of gases at subcritical temperatures. The method makes use of the vapor-liquid equilibrium data, i.e., temperature, saturation pressure, liquid and vapor molar volumes and can be used to obtain second virial coefficients of a wide variety of fluids including polar, associating and quantum gases. The calculated second virial coefficients are in good agreement with their counterparts from literature, which are obtained f...
Critical analysis of Zwietering correlation for solids suspension in stirred tanks
Ayrancı Tansık, İnci (Elsevier BV, 2014-03-01)
Design specifications for solids suspension (just suspended speed-N-js) in stirred tanks are currently based on the original form of the Zwietering correlation. There are several limitations of this correlation which can lead to poor predictions. The limitations, however, are not clearly defined. In this paper we review the reported limitations of applicability of the Zwietering correlation in detail, and propose ways to predict N-js which extend some of these limits. New data is reported and a detailed ana...

In this study, supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO(2)) deposition was used to prepare vulcan-supported Pt (Pt/Vulcan) electrocatalysts for proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs), and the effects of process variables on the properties of the electrocatalysts were investigated. The two different methods used to reduce the organometallic precursor were thermal reduction in nitrogen at atmospheric pressure and thermal reduction in scCO(2). In the former method, the maximum Pt loading achieved was 9%, and t...

The effect of coupling of unalloyed Mg and Mg-alloys (AZ91 and WE43) with Ti6Al4V alloy on corrosion and degradation behaviours of produced composites has been investigated in simulated body fluid (SBF) by hydrogen evolution, and surface and electrochemical characterization techniques. Combining of unalloyed Mg with Ti6Al4V intensified galvanic corrosion and catastrophic failure occurred by initiation of microcracks formed by sudden hydrogen gas evolution. In contrast to other composites, Ti6Al4V-AZ91 compo...
