Linde plans to present on its atmosphere control technology at POWDERMET 2017, taking place from 13-16 June in Las Vegas, USA. The presentations will be of interest to manufacturers involved in PM sintering and metal injection molding (MIM) sintering processes. They are scheduled for the Furnace Atmosphere & Control technical session on 15 June. ‘Carbon Control: PM Industry Challenges and Practical Solutions in the Sintering Process’ by Akin Malas, head of applications technology, metals, Linde LLC, will discuss how process control of hydrocarbons can improve the quality and consistency of parts, and is now a benchmark for automotive and aerospace applications. ‘Protection of Sintering Furnace Equipment Against Corrosion and Carburization’ by Grzegorz Moroz, program manager, metals, Linde LLC, will detail the impact of high-temperature corrosion and carburization on parts and equipment. This story is reprinted from material from Linde, with editorial changes made by Materials Today. The views expressed in this article do not necessarily represent those of Elsevier.

Although remote sensing technology has been widely used to monitor inland water bodies; the lack of suitable data with high spatial and spectral resolution has severely obstructed its practical development. The objective of this study is to improve the unmixing-based fusion (UBF) method to produce fused images that maintain both spectral and spatial information from the original images. Images from Environmental Satellite 1 (HJ1) and Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) were used in this study to validate the method. An improved UBF (IUBF) algorithm is established by selecting a proper HJ1-CCD image band for each MERIS band and thereafter applying an unsupervised classification method in each sliding window. Viewing in the visual sense-the radiance and the spectrum-the results show that the improved method effectively yields images with the spatial resolution of the HJ1-CCD image and the spectrum resolution of the MERIS image. When validated using two datasets; the ERGAS index (Relative Dimensionless Global Error) indicates that IUBF is more robust than UBF. Finally, the fused data were applied to evaluate the chlorophyll a concentrations (Cchla) in Taihu Lake. The result shows that the Cchla map obtained by IUBF fusion captures more detailed information than that of MERIS.

Carbon anodes are consumed in electrolysis cells during aluminum production. Carbon consumption in pre-bake anode cells is 400-450 kg C/t Al, considerably higher than the theoretical consumption of 334 kg C/t Al. This excess carbon consumption is partly due to the anode manufacturing processes. Net carbon consumption over the last three years at Emirates Aluminium (EMAL, also known as Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) Al Taweelah) was analyzed with respect to anode manufacturing processes/parameters. The analysis indicates a relationship between net carbon consumption and many manufacturing processes, including anode desulfurization during anode baking. Anode desulfurization appears to increase the reaction surface area, thereby helping the Boudouard reaction between carbon and carbon dioxide in the electrolysis zone, as well as reducing the presence of sulfur which could inhibit this reaction. This paper presents correlations noted between anode manufacturing parameters and baked anode properties, and their impact on the net carbon consumption in electrolytic pots. Anode reactivities affect the carbon consumption in the pots during the electrolysis of alumina. Pitch content in anodes, impurities in anodes, and anode desulfurization during baking were studied to find their influence on anode reactivities. The understanding gained through this analysis helped reduce net carbon consumption by adjusting manufacturing processes. For an aluminum smelter producing one million tonnes of aluminum per year, the annual savings could be as much as US $0.45 million for every kg reduction in net carbon consumption. © 2016 by the authors; licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.

Patent
Carbon Control | Date: 2010-02-12

The present invention discloses a vegetable tower, which comprises a main body. A main spiral slide guide is disposed inside the main body and vegetable growing bins can be hung on the main spiral slide guide via a plurality of chains and then slipped downstream along the main spiral slide guide by means of gravity. The vegetable growing bins further comprises several supply tubes and supply inlets. A main control module is built inside the main body, and it can automatically ascend and descend inside the main body to perform identifying, feeding, catching images and measuring functionalities. The main control module can feed the vegetable growing bins with water, fertilizer, CO_(2). The central management module and the main control module are integrated to be an automatic planting-care system to make the growths of the vegetables under well control.


The present invention discloses a supply chain digital map management system, which comprises a site database comprising basic records of vendors and an environment database comprising geographical features and atmosphere conditions that correspond to locations of the vendors. The supply chain digital map management system further comprises a processor which communicates with the site database and the environment database. As BOM tables, the vendor lists of a production are inputted into the processor, the supply chain structure is transferred and shown on the digital map. The supply chain digital map management shows the potential risks on the digital map with different colors/types of marking lines.


Patent
Carbon Control | Date: 2011-03-30

Disclosed herein are a device and method for accurately extracting individual organic acid and/or Total Volatile Fatty Acid (VFA), ammonium (NH_(4)^(+)) and buffering inorganic carbon compound or hydrogen carbonate (HCO_(3)^()) concentrations trends from an active Anaerobic Digestion (AD) process. The substantially real-time individual and/or total VFA, NH_(4)^(+) and HCO_(3)^() information allows the AD operator to effectively operate the system at optimal efficiency and ensure that VFA and NH_(4)^(+) concentrations do not reach toxic levels that can potentially cause the AD process to fail. The general health of an AD digester and process may be determined by using a ratio of total organic acids to total inorganic carbon as determined by the method.
