Magnetic desulfurization of coal

IEEE Transactions on Magnetics, 1973

This work is probably the first systematic attempt at using high gradient magnetic separation techniques in coal slurries. The rationale for magnetic desulfurization of coal resides in the paramagnetism of pyrites and their liberation from the coal substance. Principles of magnetic separation are discussed. A model based on the balance of forces acting on a particle in the vicinity of ...


Threshold Selection as a Function of Region Count Stability

2004 Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Workshop, 2004

In this paper we present a novel method for threshold selection. The idea is based upon quantifying the stability of the number of regions segmented as the threshold is varied. We capture this idea using a scale-space formulation, and detect "stable" segmentations as local minima in the scale-space. This work was originally motivated by the problem of detecting some types ...

  • Magnetic desulfurization of coal

    This work is probably the first systematic attempt at using high gradient magnetic separation techniques in coal slurries. The rationale for magnetic desulfurization of coal resides in the paramagnetism of pyrites and their liberation from the coal substance. Principles of magnetic separation are discussed. A model based on the balance of forces acting on a particle in the vicinity of a magnetized strand is developed. The experimental separator consisted of a laboratory column, packed with either steel wool or screens, inserted in the bore of a solenoid magnet. Experimental results, confirmed the effects of coal particle size and slurry velocity as predicted by the model. Evidence of magnetic action was obtained from the magnetization curves of the coal minerals in the products of separation. Preliminary economic analysis shows promise for the commercial application of the process. Directions for future research are indicated.

  • Threshold Selection as a Function of Region Count Stability

    In this paper we present a novel method for threshold selection. The idea is based upon quantifying the stability of the number of regions segmented as the threshold is varied. We capture this idea using a scale-space formulation, and detect "stable" segmentations as local minima in the scale-space. This work was originally motivated by the problem of detecting some types of common lesions in retinal images (many lesions appear as abnormally bright areas), on which we show some results. We also compare our method against an approach based on saliency.

Ferric sulphate is used as the source of ferric ions along with a small amount of magnetite which is added to make use of high gradient magnetic separation.

  • Microstructure based simulation of clay composites thermal properties

    The aim of this study is to simulate thermal properties of Bensmim clay-wool composite through using microstructure based finite element modeling. These materials have been chosen due to their low cost and local availability. Cutting edge software tools that implement finite element methods will be used in order to first generate the 3D microstructure of the composites and then simulate the thermal properties as a second step. A validation of results is then performed through comparison with previous experimental studies in literature. The simulated thermal conductivity of the clay wool composite is 0.92 W/m-K which is close to the experimental value of 0.89 W/m-K. This study shows that microstructure based modeling of thermal properties of composites is a reliable way to explore new designs and get high fidelity measures of thermal conductivity.

  • A microcomputer-based speech-output system for generating automated weather reports

    The authors describe a microcomputer-based speech-concatenation system that is being developed to produce automated voice output for the broadcast of weather forecasts. The system consists of an inventory of prerecorded speech units (words and phrases of English), and the software that is necessary to translate a weather forecast from a text format into an audio format. Speech units are processed and encoded using residual-excited linear predictive coding. This method allows changes to be made to certain speech parameters without significant degradation in speech quality. Such changes are necessary to ensure that the voice output for weather broadcasts sounds as natural as possible.<<ETX>>

  • Study on Treatment of Printing and Dyeing Wastewater by Magnetic Seed Coagulation--High Gradient Magnetic Separation

    Treatment of printing and dyeing wastewater by the device of high gradient magnetic separation (HGMS) developed by author was tested. The results showed that printing and dyeing wastewater contained varied chemical composition and whose initial concentration of chromaticity and COD were 800 and 565mg/L respectively can be well cleaned by Fenton oxidation-magnetic seed coagulation- HGMS. The removal rate of chromaticity and COD was up to 92.6% and 79.5% respectively. The effluent can meet the national drainage criterion. The optimum technological parameters are as follows: pH=6, [FeSO4·7H2O] = 250 mg/L, [H2O2] = 1.3 ml/L, [PAM] = 0.75 mg/L, dose of magnetic particle W = 150 mg/L,current intensity I=8A, current velocity U=2.420L/min, packing density of stainless steel wire R=1.00%-1.43%. Recovery rate of magnetic particle was up to 90% by regenerated technique of chemistry in combination with physics.

  • Investigation of DBD for wool fabric: depending on experimental parameters

    Summary form only given. The presence of scale on a wool fiber surface introduces a number of problems such as felting and a surface barrier to dyestuffs in the wool industry. In the past, chemical methods were the major treatment for eliminating those problems. However, the effluents generated from wool dyeing and finishing processes are seriously contaminated with different kinds of chemicals, e.g. chlora-organic compounds from the anti-felt process. With the increasing of ecological and economical restrictions imposed on the textile industry, the industries were required to find environmentally favorable alternatives in wool treatment processes. Dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) is one of the treatment methods. The results of the surface treatment, using an atmospheric pressure dielectric barrier discharge (DBD), of wool in order to establish the most suitable conditions for textile treatments, are presented. Surface treatments will be performed with different frequencies, different applied voltages, different gap sizes, different thicknesses of dielectric, different pressure and different working gases. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is used to analyze the chemical elements on the surface of the wool specimens. A scanning electron microscope (SEM) is used to detect the physical surface changes on the samples. Surface luster, wet ability, dye ability of specimens are presented.

  • Detection of steady flow zone with a cooling pad using wind tunnel

    The present research work has been carried out on the effect and relation of various parameters on cooling efficiency with minimum water and power consumption by Direct Evaporative Cooler. In this paper the emphasis has been given on the steady flow zone detection in wind tunnel with wet cooling pad of wood wool. The paper presents the experimental results for a 15 and 25 mm thick wet cooling pad. The experimental result shows the steady flow of air has been 340 mm away in wind tunnel with cooling pad. The experimental results have been used to measure cooling efficiency and water consumption with respect to unsteady and steady flow zone.
