Process and product improvisation- A perspective for polymer based industries

With the current COVID-19 pandemic situation, most of the industries and factories are looking alternatives to reduce production and operational costs through various routes. And the most common routes considered by companies are introducing pay cuts, layoffs and lowering quality of the product. But these are times where we are required to be more compassionate … Continue reading Process and product improvisation- A perspective for polymer based industries

HOW TO CALCULATE HEAT CAPACITY

Heat capacity is the amount of heat that is to be added to 1 mole of substance to increase its temperature by 1 degree Kelvin. The same can be expressed in terms of mass as the heat that is to be added to 1 gram of substance to increase its temperature by 1 degree Kelvin. … Continue reading HOW TO CALCULATE HEAT CAPACITY

MODELING AND SIMULATION OF ALGAL GROWTH KINETICS IN MATLAB.

Various models have been built to explain the growth of algal cultures. Basically, most of the models can be split into two groups. Firstly, Monod's model, that describes the algal growth based on the amount of limiting substrate or nutrient available in the media. Secondly, Droop's model that includes both internal and external nutrient content … Continue reading MODELING AND SIMULATION OF ALGAL GROWTH KINETICS IN MATLAB.

HOW TO FIND THE LIMITING REACTANT IN A REACTION

 Limiting reactant or nutrient refers to the reactant that gets consumed/exhausted first during the reaction. Limiting reactant can be estimated by comparing the stoichiometric coefficients of reactants in a balanced equation. The ratio of these coefficients are the proportions in which the reactants will be consumed. Limiting reactant can be determined by comparing the ratio of … Continue reading HOW TO FIND THE LIMITING REACTANT IN A REACTION

HOW TO CALCULATE FEED MIX COST FOR PLASTIC INDUSTRY

The quality of resin/rubber products depends on the type of additives and their quantity i.e. PHR level, in the final mixture feed. These additives are added to impart necessary physical properties like plasticity, thermal stability  and others, that aid in processing and/or improve the final product.  It is important to note that the additives come … Continue reading HOW TO CALCULATE FEED MIX COST FOR PLASTIC INDUSTRY

HOW TO CONVERT PARTS PER HUNDRED RESIN/RUBBER (PHR) TO FEED MIXTURE MASS

In plastic and rubber industry various additives like stabilizer, modifiers, dyes etc are added to the primary resin or rubber, a process called compounding. These additives generally aid in processing of the polymer and improve the quality of the finished products. For example, polyvinyl chloride based products (PVC) require plasticizer to make it flexible, stabilizers … Continue reading HOW TO CONVERT PARTS PER HUNDRED RESIN/RUBBER (PHR) TO FEED MIXTURE MASS

HOW TO DO MATERIAL BALANCE FOR REACTIONS

Material balance for a reactive systems are based on the limiting reactant of the process. It is defined as the reactant that gets consumed first during the process. For a reactor, material balance can be done as follows : 1. Write the balanced equation of the reaction that is under study. 2. Coefficients of the … Continue reading HOW TO DO MATERIAL BALANCE FOR REACTIONS

MATERIAL BALANCE – An introduction

A quantitative analysis of the amount of material that is processed in a system (manufacturing/processing unit) based on the Law of conservation of mass. In simpler terms (for continuous processes) the amount of material entering the system should be equal to the amount of material leaving the system. In batch operations, amount of material fed and … Continue reading MATERIAL BALANCE – An introduction
