Crude oil components

The Crude Oil Quality Group (COQG) is sponsoring this document as an informational tool to be usedby personnel in the petroleum industry. This document is intended to provide basic information on theeffects that certain crude oil contaminants have on refinery operations. COQG’s goal is for thisdocument to provide beneficial material to all parties involved in the crude oil supply chain - from thewellhead, to pipelines, and to the refinery gate.This initial document is intended to be the fir...

Plant Design of High Fructose Corn Syrup

This project envisages the establishment of a plant for the production of high fructose corn syrup with a capacity of 6,000 tons per annum. The country`s requirement of corn syrup is met through import. The present (2013) demand for syrup is estimated at 5,000 tons. The demand for the product is projected to reach 8,858 tones and 14,266 tons by the year 2018 and year 2023, respectively. The principal raw materials required are starch, alpha-amylase, gluco-ama...

Biodiesel produce from jatropha seed

Team Oil from [the] Soil is comprised of a group of senior chemical engineers at Calvin College who are proposing an alternative method to producing biodiesel. This alternative entails converting the oil found in seeds from the Jatropha Curcas plant into biodiesel.  Team Oil from [the] Soil plans to design and optimize a full scale plant that extracts and converts the oil found in Jatropha Curcas seeds into a usable diesel fuel substitute. In addition to this, the team plans to build a s...

A PROPOSED DESIGN FOR THE CORRECTION OF FOULING IN CONDENSERS

                                                                                  ABSTRACTThe two most common condenser tube problems faced by industrial users are internal tube fouling and tube failure. Fouling can have a major impact on the generating efficiency or the capacity of the cond...

MODELLING CREVICE COROSSION OF STAINLESS STEEL

ABSTRACTA common misconception about stainless steel is that it is not affected by corrosion. Although one of the main reasons why stainless steels are used is corrosion resistance, they do in fact suffer from certain types of corrosion in some environments and one of such types is crevice corrosion. Crevice corrosion is normally a consequence of a galvanic cell generated in specific areas with restricted flux. Crevice corrosion is a form of localized corrosion in which a metal in contac...

CONSTRUCTION OF A SIMPLE PAINT MIXER

ABSTRACTA paint mixer is defined as a pattern constructed for the production (mixing) of paint manually.  The method of fabrication of the paint mixer involved a preliminary computation of the dimensions of the standard mixer in relation to the dimension of the reacting vessel in which they will be used in marking out, cutting out to sizes, rolling, folding, welding, body-filling and painting.  The first step taken in the fabrication of this project work was the selection of materia...

CONSTRUCTION OF METAL SHARPENING AND DULLING DEVICE

ABSTRACT As  a result of modern development in Science and Technology, most of the large scale industrial used machine were now modernized to simple small and efficient machines. Some of these machines were either operated manually or the aid of electricity.    For this reason, big metal sharpening machine was here reduced to simple term, which can be operated manually such as file and grinding m...

CONSTRUCTION OF A JUICE EXTRACTOR MACHINE

ABSTRACT This project (construction of a simple size reduction machine) it was constructed locally with the use of local materials and tools in I. M. T. mechanical engineering workshop. The various parts of the equipment were constructed separately using mild steel before finally coupled.  During  the construction, the conveyors and its housing where first constructed. It consists of a shaft with helical rod wound round it. The paper was measured out and welded from a mild steel she...

CONSTRUCTION OF SOAP CUTTING DEVICE

ABSTRACT The aim of the project is to construct a soap cutting device capable of size-remaining the soap produced into regular bars and tablets without error in shapes and sizes. Soap cutting devices are used to size reduce or cut the bulk of soap produced into bars and tablets.  Soap cutting devices facilitate the process of cutting the produced soap to a required size that can be handled.  It is a kind of modern technical way of size reducing the already produced soap in a modern ...

PRODUCTION OF WOOD ADHESIVE

ABSTRACTAdhesive is a substance that holds materials together by surface attachment, while wood adhesive is a substance that is used to hold plywood for furniture works. This substance is essential and has universal applications. Thus the aim of this research work is to produce it using cassava starch as a base binder. Starch is also used in industries to produce ethanol and glucose for textile industries, laundry and paper adhesive industries.It is of great importance to paper, wood and furn...

EFFECT OF INTERFACE ON THE QUALITY OF PETROLEUM PRODUCT IN MULTI PURPOSE PIPELINE SYSTEM

 ABSTRACTInterface on petroleum product in multi-purpose pipeline system refers to as the zone of demarcation between two products where mixing occurs.  Generally, interface is a boundary layer, so the boundary between two products when they are pumped in succession is known as interface.In Nigeria Petroleum Industries like NNPC (PPMC) make use of multi-purpose pipeline system. This is where interface comes in petroleum products.  Interface as defined above plays a lot of econo...

DESULPHURISATION OF KEROSENE

ABSTRACTThis report aimed at determining  the presence and removal of mercaptan sulphur in kerosene using colour indicator method.  It is known that impurities such as free  sulphur,  sulphur dioxide, mercapters, funing materials etc. are found in petroleum products. Consequently,absorbents like molecular sieve, calcium oxide and even  activated carbon could  be  used  to trap these impurities, thereby making the  product impurity free.The afficac ...
