Use of clinoptilolite for odour removal from restaurant emissions

Clinoptilolite is well suited for adsorption applications due to its large amount of pore space, high resistance to extreme temperatures, chemically neutral basic structure and also its availability and low cost. In this project the relationship between odorant concentrations in the inner atmosphere of two restaurants were studied with respect to time by using a filter which has the clinoptilolite as packing material. "Olfactometer TO7" was used for determination of odorant concentrations. Results of the experiments have shown that in one of the restaurants the initial concentration was 375 OU/m(3) at the start of the experiment. As time progressed during experiments, the odour concentration decreased and after 2 hours a concentration of 100 OU/m(3) was obtained. In the second restaurant the initial odour concentration in the environment was 15000 OU/m(3) and it fell to 400 OU/m3 in 20 minutes and it continued to go down to 90 OU/m(3) in 120 minutes. The odour removal efficiencies in 2 hrs were calculated as 73.3% and 97.3% for the first and the second restaurants, respectively.


Use of Pulse Electric Field (PEF) for reduction of viable cell counts in food systems
Damar, S; Alpas, Hami; Bozoglu, F (2000-09-22)
Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) processing is a non-thermal technique offering the advantages of low processing temperatures, low energy utilization and minimum losses of flavours, nutrients and a fresh-like taste, while inactivating spoilage and pathogenic bacteria. The low processing temperatures used in this non-thermal technology allow the process to be energy-efficient, which leads to lower costs and fewer environmental impacts.
Use of Seydisehir alumina as a support for Co oxidation catalysts
Mbaraka, I; Üner, Deniz (2003-05-01)
An Al2O3 sample obtained from Seydisehir Eti Aluminyum A.S was treated and characterized for its potential use as a catalyst support. Atomic absorption spectroscopy and flame photometry characterization revealed the presence of 95.52% Al2O3 , 4.44% Na2O, and 0.043% Fe2O3 in the original sample. Both gamma-Al2O3 and alpha-Al2O3 phases were identified in the crystalline structure by X-ray diffraction analysis. However, alpha-Al2O3 was found to be the phase in abundance. The BET surface area of the original sa...
Design and development of iron aluminium intermetallic compounds for structural applications at high temperatures
Yıldırım, Mehmet; Akdeniz, Mahmut Vedat; Mekhrabov, Amdulla O.; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2014)
Fe-Al based intermetallic compounds are considered as suitable candidates for structural applications at high temperatures due to their outstanding oxidation and corrosion resistance, good intermediate temperature strength, low density, low cost and relatively high melting point. These outstanding physical and mechanical properties are mainly attributed to their long-range ordered superlattices, deviation from stochiometry and ternary alloying additions. However, poor ductility at ambient temperatures signi...
Synthesis, characterization and investigation of thermoluinescence properties of strontium pyrophosphate doped with metals
İlkay, Levent Sait; Özbayoğlu, Gülhan; Department of Mining Engineering (2009)
Strontium pyrophosphate is a promising phosphate that is used widely in the industry as a result of its luminescent, fluorescent, dielectric, semi-conductor, catalyst, magnetic and ion exchange properties. Thermoluminescent dosimetry (TLD) is one of such areas. Recent researches in METU on thermoluminescence property of strontium pyrophosphate showed that strontium pyrophosphate could give enough intensity for radiation dosimetry when doped with oxides of some rare-earth elements. In this study strontium py...
Effects of ultrasound and high pressure on physicochemical properties and HMF formation in Turkish honey types
Onur, Ipek; Mısra, N. N.; Barba, Francisco J.; Putnık, Predrag; Lorenzo, Jose M.; Gökmen, Vural; Alpas, Hami (2018-02-01)
In industrial production, thermal processing of honey at 50 degrees C commonly induces liquefaction, i.e. it reduces the crystal count and viscosity and delays any subsequent crystallization. Unfortunately, thermal treatment can generate toxic 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF), thereby resulting in quality reduction. Considering this, the present work aims at evaluating the influence of (two) processing technologies as alternatives to thermal processing of honey, namely high hydrostatic pressure (HHP; P = 220-3...
