SAIT Polytechnic, also known as The Southern Alberta Institute of Technology is a polytechnic institute located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The post-secondary institution is commonly referred to by its acronym SAIT. SAIT Polytechnic offers more than 100 career programs in technology, trades and business. SAIT Polytechnic is a member of Polytechnics Canada and one of Alberta's Top 50 Employers Established in 1916, it is Calgary's oldest post-secondary institution and Canada's first publicly funded technical institute.SAIT's main campus overlooks the downtown core of Calgary and is served by the Calgary C-train light rail system. In addition to the main campus, SAIT has three other campuses located in Calgary: Mayland Heights, the Culinary Campus located on Stephen Avenue and the Art Smith Aero Centre for Training and Technology.SAIT is a member of the Alberta Rural Development Network.

By using Huabei liquefied petroleum gas as a feedstock, the effects of reaction temperature and weight hourly space velocity on the aromatization product yield, conversion, motor octane number (MON), research octane number (RON), and liquid product compound were researched in a confined fluidized bed reactor. The experimental result showed that the yield of off-gas, liquefied petroleum gas, and coke increase with the increase of reaction temperature, but the yield of gasoline and diesel oil decrease with the increase of reaction temperature. The conversions of Huabei C4 liquefied petroleum gas are above 97%. The MON and RON of liquid production reach the maximum at 430°C. With increasing weight hourly space velocity, the yield of off-gas and liquefied petroleum gas increased, but the yield of gasoline and diesel oil dropped; conversion of C4 liquefied petroleum gas is about 97% and its yield first increased and then decreased with increasing weight hourly space velocity. The MON and RON of solvent production first increased and then decreased with the increase of weight hourly space velocity, and these had a maximum from 1 to 9 h-1. The optimizing operation condition would be confined when the reaction temperature is 430-450°C and weight hourly space velocity is from 3 to 5 h-1. The gasoline, diesel oil, and the aromatics contents of liquid production before entering gasoline and after entering liquefied petroleum gas are higher than these simultaneously entering gasoline and liquefied petroleum gas and before entering liquefied petroleum gas and after entering gasoline. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

This article introduces the source and utility circumstance of the C3 source (propane and propylene) in China. The utility circumstance of the C3 is discussed in detail. For example, the C3 source is used to fire as the fuel; it is applied to inhibit the polymerization reaction as the polymerization inhibitor; the C3 source is produced in the processing of acetonitrile; the C3 source is used to generate acraldehyde and propylene. According to the full utility of the C3 source, their good economic and social benefits are obtained. Copyright © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. Source

This article introduces biodiesel's characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages. The principle and influence factors for biodiesel are discussed. Biodiesel's appliance scene and practical appliance are explained. Biodiesel is made from recycled materials, is clean, and safe. It can be gradually developed to decrease dependence on the petroleum resources. There are economic and social benefits for chemical plants and the public by using biodiesel.

Rates of mass transfer were measured at the inner surface of an annular duct by an electrochemical technique under developing flow conditions with superimposed pulsating flow. Variables like the frequency and amplitude of the pulsating flow, steady flow velocity, and annulus height were studied. The pulsating flow was found to enhance the rate of mass transfer by a factor ranging from 1.2 to 5.5 compared to the steady laminar flow value. The superimposed pulsating flow had only a minor effect on the rate of mass transfer under steady turbulent flow conditions. The pulsating flow reactor offers the advantage over steady flow annular reactor in that it can be operated at low flow rates to increase the residence time. The high residence time and high rate of mass transfer resulting from pulsation together increase the degree of conversion per pass as well as the reactor productivity. Rates of mass transfer were electrochemically measured at the inner surface of an annular duct under developing flow conditions with superimposed pulsation. The pulsating flow enhanced the rate of mass transfer compared to the steady laminar flow. The high residence time and mass transfer rate resulting from pulsation increase the conversion degree per pass. Copyright © 2011 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim. Source

A well-exposed section in an esker near Ryssjön (S Sweden), strongly affected by several phases of glacitectonism, showed two phenomena that are uncommon and that seem to have a causal relationship. The first phenomenon is the occurrence of a load cast consisting predominantly of gravel in deposits formed just inside or outside a tunnel mouth. The load cast is over 3. m high and 8. m wide, a size that has previously not been described from unconsolidated sediments. Two nearby, somewhat smaller load casts consisting mainly of sand also have dimensions of over 2. m, indicating that the formation of huge load casts was apparently a feature related to the special conditions under which loading could develop at this site.The second remarkable feature is that not only is a till present in the succession above the load cast, thus indicating re-advance of the ice, but deposits overlying this till are also deformed by glacitectonism, proving that at least a second phase of ice re-advance must have occurred. This situation has not previously been documented. It is concluded that the varying differential overburden of sediment and particularly the retreating and re-advancing ice in this area were responsible for the formation of the extremely large load casts, possibly triggered by seismic shocks related to isostatic adjustment caused by oscillations of the ice front. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.
