Drying of natural zeolite powders in vibrated fuidized beds
Öcal, Cihan; Külah, Görkem; Department of Chemical Engineering (2013)
The objectives of this study were to characterize the fluidization behavior and the drying performance of a vibrated fluidized bed dryer operating with animal feed additive ‘Clinoptilolite’ bed material with a mean particle size of 3 microns, and determine the efficient operating conditions for the drying process. For this purpose, two fully equipped vibrated fluidized bed systems were designed and constructed for the analyses related to hydrodynamic and drying tests, respectively. The hydrodynamic test res...
Analysis of material collected on particles exposed to volatile matter of bituminous coal in a fluidized bed
Vural, H (1997-05-01)
The activity of fluidized bed particles towards the volatile matter of a bituminous coal was analysed by measurement of tar yield and the direct measurement of CO2 concentration in the exhaust gas from the devolatilization of bituminous coal particles in a laboratory-scale fluidized bed reactor. In a third approach, thermogravimetric analysis (t.g.a.) of the fluidizing particles was performed, indicating that calcium-containing particles exhibited the largest weight loss. In a fourth approach, a mass spectr...

Understanding the role of renewable energy in a rentier state: the example of United Arab Emirates
Atalay, Yasemin; Kibaroğlu, Ayşegül; Department of Middle East Studies (2011)
The overall purpose of this thesis can be put as the search for the prospects of the establishment of a renewable energy paradigm in a conventional example of an oil-rich state. The sample actor of the oil paradigm is chosen as the United Arab Emirates, as it represents the overall character of the Arab Gulf region, as well as being an appropriate example of what is termed as the ‘rentier state’. Within this framework, firstly it is aimed to shed light on the negative impacts of the oil paradigm in terms of...
Evaluation of an improved code for the performance of AFBCs
Selçuk, Nevin; Oymak, O (1997-03-01)
In a previously developed system model, bed and freeboard models were coupled for the continuous combustion of lignite particles of widely varied size distributions, burning in their own ash in a fluidised combustor. This was modified to incorporate a) a procedure for faster computation of particle-size distributions (PSDs) without any sacrifice of accuracy; b) an energy balance on char particles, for determining temperature variation with particle size; and c) assumption of plug flow for the interstitial g...
