Development of Methods and Practical Experience in the Preparation and Pulverized Combustion of Anthracite and Bituminous Coal Mixture at Zmiev TPP

With the decline in the supply of Donetsk anthracite and semi-anthracite as a result of fighting in the east of Ukraine, for the first time in the world it managed to solve scientific and practical problems and to organize producing of homogeneous mixture of anthracite with 27–32 % bituminous coal at Zmiev TPP fuel stock, as well as safe and effective mixture combustion in TP-100, TPP-210, TPP-210A boilers with performance characteristics and technical and economic indicators not different from those of the Donetsk semi-anthracite. For state-owned coal enterprises it gave additional volume of sales, and for thermal power plant it has significantly expanded fuel base, made it possible to reduce the night unloading unit loads of down to 65 % without oil or gas addition due to more stable ignition and combustion of coal mixture compared with anthracite.

Nanofluids Applying for Emergency Cooling of High Loaded Equipment

Based on these data and a brief literature review we have examined the principled possibility of using nanofluids for emergency cooling of high-energy equipment. With that end in view, the possibility of emergency cooling of an overheated heat transfer surface using nanofluids in the case of a boiling crisis is explored by means of synchronous recording of changes of main heat transfer parameters of boiling water over time. Two nanofluids are tested, which are derived from a mixture of natural aluminosilicates (AlSi-7) and titanium dioxide (NF-8). It is found that the introduction of a small portions of nanofluid into a boiling coolant (distilled water) in a state of film boiling (theater > 500 °C) can dramatically decrease the heat transfer surface temperature to 130–150 °C, which corresponds to a transition to a safe nucleate boiling regime without affecting the specific heat flux. The fact that this regime is kept for a long time at a specific heat load exceeding the critical heat flux for water and theater = 125–130 °C is particularly important. This makes it possible to prevent a potential accident emergency (heater burnout and failure of the heat exchanger) and to ensure the smooth operation of the equipment. It is shown that cooling of energyloaded equipment by using aluminosilicate NFs is quite realistic and cost-effective process. Bibl. 22, Fig. 4, Tab. 1.

Key words: nanofluids, heat exchange, emergency cooling, heating surface, deposits.

Research of the Technology of Carbon Nanotubes Production in Gas Mixtures Contained Carbon Monoxide

Analysis of existing methods of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) obtaining shows the advantages of the method of catalytic synthesis. This method is differed by relatively low energy consumption, use of cheap raw materials, an ability to create high-performance industrial production, relative simplicity of equipment and also by the lack of thorough cleaning of the resulting product. Catalytic synthesis methods differ one from another by use of raw carbon material type, catalyst type on which carbon is deposited and temperature regimes. As the basic technology it was used process at moderate temperatures (in the range of a netic-thermodynamic maximum of passing of Bell-Boudoir reaction). Products of air conversion of natural gas with strictly controllable hydrogen, carbon and oxygen potentials were used in a role of reactionary gas. Also, a possibility of CNTs manufacturing from a producer gas was explored. Maximum output of a final product has been achieved on an iron-ore concentrate of the Inguletsky ore mining and processing enterprise (Krivoi Rog) which used among many in the capacity of the catalyst of CNTs formation.

Comparative Analysis of the Energy Characteristics of Amine and Water Absorption Processes Extracting CO2 and H2S from Biogas

Currently in the world we remark wide development of biomethane from biogas production projects and it’s utilization as a universal fuel and engine fuel, it’s supply to the natural gas distribution network. The authors made a comparative assessment of energy costs of biomethane production from biogas, using common amine and waterabsorption processes of carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide extraction from biogas. For amine case, extraction of acid components process operating costs consist largely (up to 70–80 %) of the energy expenses for the regeneration of saturated amine, therefore, proposed solution is an effective absorbent — aqueous solution of methyldiethanolamine (MDEA, 40 %) (MDEA, 40 %) and monoethanolamine (IEA, 10 %), usage of which 2,3–2,5 times reduces heat load in the stripper reboiler in comparison with conventional solutions of monoethanolamine (MEA). Comparison of specific energy consumption for production biomethane using an amine and water purification technology of biogas from CO2 and H2S shows that the last has a 20–30 % lower power consumption than the amine. Our studies have shown that under comparable conditions the CO2 concentration at the outlet of the amine desorbing process is in the range of 98 % versus 80 % with water absorption, that indicates a loss of CH4 with gas desorption. Amine absorption gives an output of biomethane on average on 15 % more than water. Using this difference of produced biomethane the additional cost of the regeneration of the rich absorbent is compensated. Furthermore, water absorption requires a significant amount of water, it is connected with environmental concerns and the availability of water resources. In addition, if necessary, during the production of commercial carbon dioxide, the amine process has the advantage of CO2 concentration it is substantially higher at the outlet of the stripper. The comparative analysis of these schemes was conducted using GasCondOil and HYSYS software systems. The results and parameters of the biogas purification process from acid components can be used to calculate the carbon dioxide recovery process and to obtain biomethane — natural gas analogue.

Niobium Recycling from the Industrial Wastes

Recycling technologies of the wastes containing niobium with using various methods are considered. Advantages of the hydrometallurgical method of industrial wastes treatment are shown. Thermodynamic characteristics of the leaching process are calculated. The process parameters of niobium compound dissolution are determined. Some methods of production of metallic niobium powder of various dispersions are proposed. Niobium refining processes using oxygen-free ionic melts, which allow extraction of niobium powder or compact electrochemical niobium coatings, are investigated. The influence of current density, temperature and electrolyte components concentration on a current efficiency and characteristics of coatings are established. Increasing of current density and coating thickness, respectively, leads to the deposition of macrocrystalline coatings. Niobium deposition on copper leads to deposition of coatings with a slight interdiffusion. The proposed niobium refining methods allow receiving high purity metal in a compact or powder form. Bibl. 5, Fig. 2, Tab. 1.

Key words: niobium, recycling, industrial wastes treatment, refining, ionic melt, electrochemical coating.

Reducing the Formation of Nitrogen Oxides During the Combustion of Natural Gas

The purpose of researches, the results of which are given in the article was to determine the dominant components of ballasting gases that affect the formation of NOx during combustion of natural gas, as well as methods their feed into the combustion chamber. It is defined that most influence for formation NOx in exhaust gases derive in case is ballast gas with gaseous fuels on molecular level pre-mixed, but not with blast air. It was shown experimentally that premixing the ballast gas (CO2 or N2) with the natural gas provides reducing the formation of nitrogen oxides during combustion of the mixture. Thus, by mixing natural gas with 10 % ballasting gas ([Vá/(Vă – Vá)].100, a = 1) NOx reduction achieved in the case of using N2 52 %, CO2 — 95 %. Mixing exhaust gases (combustion products) at the recirculation ratio r = 10 with natural gas in the burner reduces the yield of nitrogen oxides by 44 %, and in case their pre-mixing with blast air on the 24 %. CO2 mixing with blast air (r = 10) reduces the yield of nitrogen oxides by 34 %. Developed and tested burners for boilers with capacity of 110 t/h of steam with added exhaust gases to natural gas in the burner. Bibl.18, Fig.12, Tab.1.

Heterogeneous Ion-Exchange Cellulose Membranes for Electrodialysis

A new method of obtaining cellulose heterogeneous ion exchange membranes was designed for an electrodialysis with the purpose of desalting of salt and brackish waters, and also for the reagentless processing of technogenic waste as weak solutions of salts with the simultaneous regeneration of acids and lyes and returning them into technological process. Influence of composition of the obtained membranes on their electrotransport characteristics was investigated. A comparative analysis of the electrical conductivity and selectivity of membranes with serial ion exchange membranes MK-40 and MA-41 was produced. It was shown that membranes samples have sufficiently high conductivity, which in some cases is higher than at the serial membranes MK-40 and MA-41 It was found that the selectivity of the new membranes is not lower than at serial ion exchange membranes. Efficiency of obtained membranes is near to serial at desalination of solution of natrium sulfate. Bibl. 8, Fig. 6, Tab. 3.

Key words: membrane, cellulose, cationite KU-2-8, anionite AV-17-8, electrodialysis, solution of natrium sulfate, conductivity, selectivity on the transfer of counter.
