Vapour-liquid equilibrium measurements using a static total pressure apparatus.
A novel static total pressure apparatus was designed, built and commissioned for the measurement of VLE data at low to moderate pressures and temperatures. The apparatus of Fischer and Gmehling  was used as a basis ...
Development of novel apparatus for vapour-liquid equilibrium measurements at moderate pressures.
In this work, a novel experimental apparatus has been designed, constructed and commissioned for the measurement of VLE at pressures up to 750 kPa and temperatures up to 600 K. The project undertaken represents a complete ...
Development and critical evaluation of group contribution methods for the estimation of critical properties, liquid vapour pressure and liquid viscosity of organic compounds.
Critical properties, liquid vapour pressures and liquid viscosities are important thermophysical properties required for the design, simulation and optimisation of chemical plants. Unfortunately, experimental data for these ...
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 ...
Gas-phase ethylene polymerization studies using a magnesium chloride-supported Ziegler-Natta catalyst.
The gas phase polyethylene production process is the most recently developed and boasts many
Phase equilibrium investigation of the water and acetonitrile solvent with heavy hydrocarbons.
Thermodynamics plays an important role for separation processes in chemical industries. Phase equilibrium is of special interest in chemical engineering as separation processes such as distillation and extraction involve ...

Vapour-liquid equilibrium studies at low pressure using a static-cell cluster.
Phase equilibrium data are vital in process design for chemical industries. Development of
Systematic study of selected sorbents available in South Africa for desulphurisation of flue gas during in-bed fluidised bed combustion of coal.
Sulphur dioxide (S02) is an atmospheric pollutant that has the ability to negatively impact on local vegetation, farming activities and human health. South Africa's coal fired power stations release this pollutant into the ...
