Perry's chemical Engineer's handbook, Section 23

Now in its 8th variation, Perry's Chemical Engineers' instruction manual deals unequalled, updated insurance of all elements of chemical engineering. For the 1st time, person sections can be found for buy. you can now obtain simply the content material you wish for a fragment of the cost of the complete quantity.

Small Ring Heterocycles

The chemistry of heterocyclic compounds is among the most intricate branches of natural chemistry. it really is both fascinating for its theoretical implications, for the range of its man made techniques, and for the physiological and commercial value of heterocyclic compounds. the purpose of this sequence is to supply professional displays of some of the branches of heterocyclic chemistry.

Synthetic Liquids Production and Refining

Availability of reasonable strength is a key consider delivering monetary progress and a stronger lifestyle. For transportation, just about all of the liquid fuels are made out of crude oil. replacement carbon assets are getting used for transportation fuels in basic terms on a constrained scale, and study efforts targeting the conversion of coal, normal gasoline, biomass and waste to liquid items (XTL conversion) ebb and move with the cost of crude oil.

Batch and Semi-batch Reactors: Practical Guides in Chemical Engineering

Batch and Semi-batch Reactors: functional publications in Chemical Engineering is a cluster of brief texts that supply a centred introductory view on a unmarried topic. the entire library offers a easy figuring out of the most issues within the chemical method industries, permitting engineering pros to speedy entry info.

No overheating or under-heating was observed. As a final check of the validity of the CFD modeling exercise, the measured furnace temperature distribution was compared with the model-predicted furnace temperature distribution after the installation was completed. Figure 10 shows that there is good agreement between the model and the measured temperature distribution after the conversion to oxyfuel operation. 28 ■ 71st Conference on Glass Problems Oxy-Fuel Conversion Reduces Fuel Consumption in Fiberglass Melting Figure 9: Combustion space temperature distribution within FGI's new oxy-fuel furnace.

In addition to installation at the time of scheduled furnace repairs, in most instances this technology can be installed on-the-fly while the furnace is in production. This paper will provide review of a fullfurnace conversion accomplished at furnace rebuild in the fiberglass industry. Since the glass company's primary motivation to convert their melting operation to oxy-fuel was fuel savings, most of the focus will be about the fuel efficiency improvement. The review will include discussion of burner features that act to maximize combustion efficiency by increasing the amount of energy transferred directly from the flame to the batch materials and to the molten glass.

The temperature distribution is shown in the plane of the burners, and the peek temperature in this plane is about 3500°F. As shown in Figure 7, the simulation faithfully revealed the temperature distribution inside the original air-fuel furnace. 26 ■ 71st Conference on Glass Problems Oxy-Fuel Conversion Reduces Fuel Consumption in Fiberglass Melting Figure 6: Combustion space temperature distribution within FGI's original air-fuel furnace.
