Determination of phase equilibria for long-chain linear hydrocarbons by Monte Carlo simulation.
The focus of this study was to determine the coexistence phase equilibria for three groups of long-chain linear hydrocarbons (n-alkanes, 1-alkenes and 1-alcohols) using Monte Carlo simulation. Three common transferable ...

CFD modelling of a novel clarifier design for use in sugar cane juice clarification.
The purpose of clarification in the sugar industry is to remove soluble, insoluble and colloidal matter from cane juice. Efficient clarification is required to produce high quality sugar and to prevent entrainment of solids ...
Robust equipment for the measurement of vapour-liquid equilibrium at high temperatures and high pressures.
In this work VLE data was measured on three different pieces of equipment. Measurements were undertaken in the laboratory of Professor Gmehling in Oldenburg, Germany using two different static cells and in the Thermodynamics ...
A study of the phenomenon of bridging of sugarcane bagasse
This work reports the results of a systematic study of the factors that affect the bridging behaviour of bagasse. It shows that traditional bulk solids theory is inappropriate for predicting bagasse flow mainly because ...
Vapour-liquid equilibria studies for binary systems containing 1-hexene and n-hexane
Experimental vapour-liquid equilibria (VLE) data is required for the design of separation
The separation of hexafluoropropylene and hexafluoropropylene oxide using toluene and a novel solvent.
ABSTRACT PELCHEM, the chemical division of NECSA, produces the fluorocarbon hexafluoropropylene (HFP) onsite. In 2005 PELCHEM initiated research into the wet oxidation of HFP to produce the higher value fluorocarbon ...
Modelling of the Marianridge wastewater treatment plant.
One of the consequences of the social and economIc change due to industrialisation is the generation of industrial wastewater which requires treatment before being released into the natural aquatic environment. The ...

An environmental life cycle assessment of the provision of recycled water in Durban.
This dissertation investigated the questions of sustainable development, in the context of water and sanitation provision, for the eThekwini Municipality. The Durban Water Recycling (DWR) plant, run by Veolia Water, was ...
