  • Rectifier design for fuel ethanol plants reduces energy

    Plants have traditionally used trays in the distillation columns to produce fuels grade ethanol. Trays of various configurations have been adequate in this service and their technology is well founded. The ever-present desire to reduce the energy needed to produce a gallon of ethanol has opened the doors to structured packings being used in the rectification sections of ethanol distillation columns.

  • Case Study: The Solex Heat Exchanger for Cooling Polypropylene Powder

    Samsung General Chemicals manufactures various petrochemicals and polymers. The cooling step in their polypropylene line was a bottleneck that limited the amount of powder polypropylene that they could produce per year. The PP is used for a wide variety of applications ranging from packaging films to automotive components.

  • Particle Image Understanding – A Primer

    This paper will discuss the use of pattern recognition techniques to identify and differentiate different particle types contained in a heterogeneous solution. This application involves imaging the microscopic particles in real-time as they flow in a solution, segregating each individual particle as a separate image, and then applying pattern recognition techniques to differentiate the individual particle types.A framework for discussing the complexity of a pattern recognition operation in this application will be proposed, along with some specific examples showing how this framework applies.
