Heat Transfer

Conduction Calculation Example – 1

After getting a brief knowledge of conduction heat transfer, we can go further to understand how we can calculate the conduction heat transfer. We also may modify the equation thus the thickness of medium or insulation can be calculated. For better understanding, several examples of heat transfer calculation are provided. Read more…

Heat Radiation

Radiation heat transfer or simply called as thermal radiation occurs without the necessity of any medium even in vacuum space. Or, when a medium is available, the transfer process does not depend on the medium itself. The radiation will be transferred limitless if there is no obstruction. A classic example Read more…

Heat Convection

Convection heat transfer can be simply described as the transfer of heat along with the movement of its medium. However, convection process is a complex mechanism which involves heat conduction, energy storage, and mixing/agitation especially when the heat transfer occurs between a solid surface and fluids body. It is important Read more…

Heat Conduction

As discussed in another article, conduction is heat transfer from particle to particle inside one medium or several connected mediums without any movement from its particle. How can we quantify the heat transferred by this method? Quantification might be needed if we want to install new heat insulation for our Read more…

Heat Transfer

What do you feel in summer, hot or extremely hot? Whatever your answer, whether it is hot or cold, it refers to the same measure. When a substance is called hot, it means the level of heat is high. While if it is called cold, the level of heat is Read more…

Coal Liquefaction

Methods of Coal Liquefaction

Extraction with solvent and catalytic hydrogenation are the general division of coal liquefaction process. Each process can be described as following. In the extraction process with the solvent, the coal is extracted and dissolved at a temperature of 625 – 725 K with a hydrogen donor solvent. During the dissolution Read more…

Coal Liquefaction

Introduction to Coal Liquefaction

Coal is a heterogeneous rock that is infiltrated by substances derived from natural organic materials derived from millions of years ago. The organic part contains elements of Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Sulfur, and Nitrogen. Coal is not a mixture of chemical compounds such as petroleum but rather a mixture of various Read more…

Water Treatment

Equalization Pond

In water and wastewater treatment system, the stability of flow entering the system is required. The objective of the equalization pool is to minimize or control fluctuations of wastewater characteristics to achieve optimum conditions in subsequent processing. The variation of the liquid waste stream determines the size and type of Read more…
