with steam or drying with air - a case study for clay
Clay is a term used to describe a group of hydrous aluminium
phyllosilicate. Phyllosilicates being a subgroup of silicate
minerals that are typically less than 2 µm in diameter...
Cells Versus Heat Engines: A Perspective of Thermodynamic
and Production Efficiencies
Fuel Cells are being developed as a powering method which
may be able to provide clean and efficient energy conversion
from chemicals to work. An analysis of their real efficiencies
for the Physical Properties of Moist Air
In a closed container partly filled with water there will
be some water vapor in the space above the water. The
concentration of water vapor depends only on the temperature.
It is not dependent on the amount of water and is only...
Ionization Plasma Sources for Enhanced Aluminum Processing
Low ionization plasma melting of aluminum is shown to
be effective due to the speed of melting and the highly
efficient nature of the process. Additionally, the input
power is low as compared to the alternatives, and it produces
no noise and no emissions...
output for Steam and Superheated steam
In engineering, steam refers to vaporized water. It is
a pure, invisible gas (not a mist) which at standard atmospheric
pressure has a temperature of around 100 degrees...
Semiconductor Gas Abatement Physics and Principles
With the ever growing menace of perflourocompound emissions,
MHI has pioneered an energy efficient way to abate these
materials through a plasma process...
convection really enhance uniformity?
Very Often the key to high productivity lies in good uniformity
in the furnace/oven. As ovens become larger this
is a key concern. Energy efficiency and uniformity are
Materials with Forced Air Convection
Material manufacturing involves several complex processing
steps, many of which use heat to accelerate drying, firing,
sintering and other operations. These processing steps
are usually performed with gas or oil-fired burners in
kilns or other types of equipment that often require a
great deal of...
Economics of MHI PC Furnaces for Aluminum Industry(requires
macromedia flash player free from Macromedia
A new PC-RAM-PLASMA method is the key to melting
aluminum, cleanly and efficiently. The low cost plasma
melting devices described in this report along with the
power concentration technology is the key to...
Heating Elements: Which are the best type for me?
Manufactures often increase their productivity and quickly
recoup their initial furnace investment by choosing the
proper heating elements... (a study
by the National Academy of Engineers condensed for your
use!!). See also another article below on Productivity
gains once you have identified the best heating elements.
What can you do more to increase productivity.
Foams for use in Fuel Cells
Fuel cells are electrochemical devices that convert the
chemical energy of a reaction directly into electrical
energy. A variety of fuel cells are in different stages
of development. They can be classified by use of diverse
categories, depending on the combination of type of fuel
and oxidant, whether the fuel is processed outside...
Heating Elements for Higher Productivity
Experiments have shown that manufacturers can often increase
their productivity and quickly recoup their initial furnace
investment by choosing higher temperature heating elements...
Die Heating Comparison: Airtorch vs. Flame
The heating of the die is often the most critical start
up procedure in forging, extrusion, and pressure die casting
operations. Improper pre-heating results in a variety
of problems, the most significant being low die life on...
