Aircraft Gas Turbine Engine Technology provides a comprehensive, easy-to-understand treatment of the background, development, and applications of the gas turbine engine it its various forms, such as turobjet, turbofan, turboprop, and turboshaft powerplants. Designed primarily as a resource for technicians preparing for the FAA aircraft powerplant mechanic certification, Aircraft Gas Turbine Engine Technology also may be used a reference. The text also discusses the changing maintenance and overhaul procedures and philosophies and the role of fuel metering in engine operation....
The Rectisol process uses methanol as wash solvent. The
methanol has many benefits, is globally available and is a low-cost washing
agent. Furthermore, methanol is chemically and thermally stable and
will not change its behavior and structure over a long service life.
The Rectisol wash unit operates at temperatures below 0°C. To lower
the feed gas temperatures, it is cooled against cold-product streams
before entering the absorber tower. At the absorber tower, CO2 and
H2S/COS are removed.
Natural gas is a vital component of the world's supply of energy and an important
source of many bulk chemicals and speciality chemicals. It is one of the cleanest, safest,
and most useful of all energy sources, and helps to meet the world’s rising demand for
cleaner energy into the future. However, exploring, producing and bringing gas to the
user or converting gas into desired chemicals is a systematical engineering project, and
every step requires thorough understanding of gas and the surrounding environment.
Gas chromatography has been and it still is, one of the key tools in analytical
techniques in many of the advanced research carried out over the globe. This
technique has contributed tremendously and was once the main technique in the
analysis of specific compounds like volatile compounds, certain pesticides,
pharmaceuticals and petroleum products. The advance of this technique has resulted
in several tandem instruments with application of other techniques to enhance the
results obtained by gas chromatography.
This book is dedicated to the rapidly grown field of microporous ceramic membranes
with separating layers of pore diameter less than 2 nm. In spite of the recent rapid growth
of the research effort directed towards the development of microporous ceramic
membranes the field is still considered to be at its infancy and exhibits a significant future
It is very important to make the specific difference between biotechnology as a distinct
science of getting valuable products from molecules, cells, or tissues of viable
organisms, and any other applications of bioprocesses that are based on using the
whole living plants or animals in different fields of human activities such as
bioremediation, environmental protection, organic agriculture, or industrial
exploitation of natural resources.
