  • Experts in combustion control - Expert Paper

    Fired heaters are integral to hydrocarbon processing (HP). Specifically designed for the reaction of fuel and air to produce extremely high gas temperatures, heaters transfer this energy to potentially highly flammable process fluids via heat exchangers. They consume large quantities of fuel, produce large quantities of emissions and are a potential safety hazard to personnel and plant. However, ...

  • Taking matters into hand - Case Study

    Biofuels must be up to scratch as contaminated or improperly blended fuel can damage a  company’s bottom line. To ensure product quality several options exist including laboratory analysis, field test kits and portable lab instruments.  Laboratory testing would be the ideal solution if everyone had the budget and the time to wait for the results.  But in a market where time ...

  • Biodiesel dispersion replaces diesel fuel

    Is that possible to find substitution to traditional diesel fuel? Until recently these question were asked by ecologists and diesel cars owners who are taking hard time in periodic rises in price of fuel. With the event of the biodiesel development the situation cleared up. It became clear to all that cheap, qualitative and environmentally friendly biodiesel was born and started winning surely ...

  • Refined augmented Lagrange Hopfield network–based Lagrange relaxation for hydrothermal scheduling

    This paper proposes a refined augmented Lagrange Hopfield network–based Lagrange relaxation (ALHN–LR) for solving short term hydrothermal scheduling (HTS) problem with pumped–storage hydro units. ALHN–LR consists of improved Lagrange relaxation (ILR) and augmented Lagrange Hopfield network (ALHN). For solving the HTS problem, the proposed method applies enhanced ILR for finding thermal unit ...

  • KBR - Joint Operational Fuel System (JOFS)

    In 2009 DESMI was approached by KBR in the U.K, KBR being a prime contractor to the U.K Armed forces with a specification for the supply of ATEX marked pump units for pumping fuel in ‘Theatre’ as it is known. Theatre being the ‘battlefield’. We had supplied pumps previously direct to the end user (UK MoD) so the decision was taken that it was a worthwhile exercise to bid ...

  • Making biodiesel blends fuel is simple

    Biodiesel is made in the process of transesterification of vegetable oil by methanol, although sometimes ethanol or isopropyl alcohol are used instead. The ration is approximately 200 kg of methanol per 1 ton of oil (plus potassium or sodium hydroxide). Process temperature is approximately 60°С, no pressure increase is required. After the transesterification reaction, the content of ...

  • Performance and emissions of a dual fuel operated diesel engine

    Vegetable oil and its esters (biodiesel) are the renewable alternative fuels that can be used as a substitute for diesel in the diesel engines. The vegetable oil fuelled diesel engine results in lower efficiency and higher smoke emission. Hence in this work, an attempt has been made to use inedible and under utilised mahua oil (MO) as a substitute for diesel by fumigating liquefied petroleum gas ...
