Production of Bio-Gasoline with High Octane Number, as a Renewable Transportation Biofuel, via Thermochemical Conversion of Castor Oil

R. Parvizsedghy; M. Alibolandi; S. M. Sadrameli

Volume 17, Issue 3 , September 2020, Pages 3-23


  Vegetable oils are proved as valuable feedstocks in the biofuel production. Some common issues of cracking of vegetable oils–as an effective method for the biofuel production- are related to the glycerol decomposition during the cracking process. Transesterification, which can remove glycerol from ...  Read More

Demuification of Water-in-Oil Emulsions by Means of Dielectrophoresis

M. Mozafari; A. Ganjizade; .S. N. Ashrafizadeh

Volume 17, Issue 3 , September 2020, Pages 24-40


  In this work, the demulsification of water-in-crude oil emulsions by dielectrophoresis via applying a non-uniform electric field in a lab-scale cylindrical cell was studied. The stability of emulsions was assessed through monitoring the size distribution of water droplets at 0, 3, 6, and 24 hours after ...  Read More

Effect of Electrohydrodynamic (EHD) on the Drying Rate of Polymer Films Based on the Heat and Mass Transfer

N. Mirhoseini renani; N. Etesami

Volume 17, Issue 3 , September 2020, Pages 41-52


  The electrohydrodynamic (EHD) drying of Poly (vinyl acetate) latex films was experimentally investigated in a wind tunnel. The influence of various conditions such as the air temperature, air velocity, and concentration of the latex solution, in the presence and the absence of a high electric field, ...  Read More

Modification of Mixed Matrix Membranes' Famous Permeability Prediction Models by Considering the Formed Voids Around Nonporous Fillers

N. Sadeghi; O. Bakhtiari

Volume 17, Issue 3 , September 2020, Pages 53-73


  New promising generations of mixed matrix membranes (MMMs), which potentially have better separation performances than the neat polymeric membranes, are prepared by the incorporation of proper filler particles within polymeric matrices. However, some undesired phenomena like the void formation around ...  Read More

Experimental Study of Attrition in the Spouted Bed and Spout-Fluid Bed with a Draft Tube

A. Alipour; R. Sotude.Gharebagh; M. Koksal; G. Kulah; R. Zarghami; N. Mostoufi

Volume 17, Issue 3 , September 2020, Pages 85-97


  The attrition of 300 µm natural zeolite particles was studied in a laboratory scale draft tube spouted bed (DTSB) and spout-fluid bed (DTSFB). It has been shown that the attrition rate decreases with time and reaches to an almost constant value. The results show that the prevailing attrition mechanism ...  Read More
