The kinetics of methane gas hydrate formation was obtained by different dual and dual mixed impeller experiments with surface baffle at 42.5 bars pressure and 2 degrees C temperature. The outcomes indicated that induction time is lower in radial flow experiments compared to mixed flow experiments due to better gas liquid contact, uniform shear stress and good pumping capacity compared to mixed flow ones with values less 15 min. Radial flow experiments showed higher values in hydrate yield although the duration of hydrate formation in radial flow experiments is less compared to mixed flow ones confirming the above outcomes with values more than 5%. Radial flow impellers indicated higher values in rate of hydrate formation compared to mixed flow impellers.


Examination of methane hydrate formation by the use of dual impeller combinations
Longinos, Sotirios Nik.; Parlaktuna, Mahmut (2021-01-01)
The kinetics of methane gas hydrates formation was obtained by different dual impeller (DI) experiments with full baffle (FB) at 42.5 bar pressure and 2 °C temperature. There were 18 (dual and dual mixed) experiments by the use of pitched blade turbine upward trending (PBTU), pitched blade turbine downward trending (PBTD), rushton turbine (RT) and new impeller design trapezoid turbine in upward trending and down ward trending, TTU and TTD respectively. There were estimations of induction time, duration of h...
Experimental investigation of carbon dioxide injection effects on methane-propane-carbon dioxide mixture hydrates
Abbasov, Abbas; Merey, Sukru; Parlaktuna, Mahmut (2016-08-01)
In this research, first, hydrate with high saturation in porous media (sand sediments) was formed in fully filled high pressure cell by using a mixture of the following gases at 4 degrees C: methane (CH4), propane (C3H8) and carbon dioxide (CO2). The feed mole percent of the gases used was selected as follows: CH4 (95%), C3H8 (3%), CO2 (2%). This selection was made in order to form natural gas hydrate of thermogenic origin (sII type hydrate). Thereafter, CO2 injection into the high saturation hydrate media ...
Kinetic investigation of chemical vapor deposition of B4C on tungsten substrate
Karaman, Mustafa; Sezgi, Naime Aslı; Doğu, Timur; Ozbelge, H. Onder (2006-12-01)
Production of beta-rhombohedral boron carbide (B4C) on a tungsten substrate by the chemical vapor deposition from a BCl3-H-2-CH4 gas mixture was achieved. An impinging-jet reactor was used to minimize the mass-transfer limitations on the reaction kinetics, which made a detailed kinetic investigation possible. Results of the XRD and XPS analyses showed that the solid product formed on the substrate is a rhombohedral B4C phase. Both dichloroborane and boron carbide formation rates were found to increase with ...

Pure and Mg(2+) & F(-) doped nano hydroxyapatites (HA) were synthesized by a precipitation method and sintered at 1100 degrees C to investigate their densification and structure. Different amounts of Mg(2+) and F ions were doped in to HAs. X-ray diffraction was used to identify the presence of phases And lattice parameters of HA and tri-calcium phosphates (TCP) present in the samples. Densification of HA was improved by the addition of these ions. In most of the doped samples, beta-tri-calcium phosphate (TC...
Influence of oxygen concentration on the sooting behavior of ethanol droplet flames in microgravity conditions
Yozgatlıgil, Ahmet; Choi, Mun Young; Kazakov, Andrei; Dryer, Frederick L. (Elsevier BV, 2007-1)
The influence of oxygen (O-2) concentration and inert on the sooting and burning behavior of large ethanol droplets under microgravity conditions was investigated through measurements of burning rate, flame temperature, sootshell diameter, and soot volume fraction. The experiments were performed at the NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC) 2.2 s drop tower in Cleveland, OH. Argon (Ar), helium (He), and nitrogen (N-2) were used as the inerts and the O-2 concentration was varied between 21% and 50% mole fraction a...
