Molten-Caustic-Leaching (Gravimelt) System Integration Project, Phase 2. Topical report for test circuit operation( )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of the task (Task 6) covered in this document was to operate the refurbished/modified test circuit of the Gravimeh Process in a continuous integrated manner to obtain the engineering and operational data necessary to assess the technical performance and reliability of the circuit. This data is critical to the development of this technology as a feasible means of producing premium clean burning fuels that meet New Source Performance Standards (NSPS). Significant refurbishments and design modifications had been made to the facility (in particular to the vacuum filtration and evaporation units) during Tasks 1 and 2, followed by off-line testing (Task 3). Two weeks of continuous around-the-clock operation of the refurbished/modified MCL test circuit were performed. During the second week of testing, all sections of the plant were operated in an integrated fashion for an extended period of time, including a substantial number of hours of on-stream time for the vacuum filters and the caustic evaporation unit. A new process configuration was tested in which centrate from the acid wash train (without acid addition) was used as the water makeup for the water wash train, thus-eliminating the one remaining process waste water stream. A 9-inch centrifuge was tested at various solids loadings and at flow rates up to 400 lbs/hr of coal feed to obtain a twenty-fold scaleup factor over the MCL integrated test facility centrifuge performance data

Molten-caustic-leaching (Gravimelt) system integration project. Quarterly report, October--December 1989( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Operation of the Gravimelt Integrated Test Circuit for desulfurization and demineralization of coal was completed in a previous quarter when a 48-test process matrix was performed over 750 hours of operational time resulting in the production of 3,000 pounds of treated coal suitable for further test and evaluation. Analysis of the large quantity of data collected continued during the current quarter. Assessment of trace elements in the feed and product coal for two runs (one with Pittsburgh No. 8 coal and one with Kentucky No. 9 coal) indicates that greater than 96% of the silicon, iron and aluminium was removed for both coals. A trace element analysis for 21 elements is presented in the quarterly. Selected samples of the product coal were placed in a GN₂-purged oven for six hours at 140°F to remove about 15% of the moisture from the samples. These samples were repackaged in 55-gallon drums and shipped to DoE. Data from shakedown was analyzed in detail with particular attention paid to coal product quality (sulfur and ash), carbonate and humic acid formation, particle size distribution, liquid sample analysis, and wash train performance
MHD Integrated Topping Cycle Project. Thirteenth quarterly technical progress report, August 1, 1990--October 31, 1990( )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The overall objective of the project is to design and construct prototypical hardware for an integrated MHD topping cycle, and conduct long duration proof-of-concept tests of integrated system at the US DOE Component Development and Integration Facility in Butte, Montana. The results of the long duration tests will augment the existing engineering design data base on MHD power train reliability, availability, maintainability, and performance, and will serve as a basis for scaling up the topping cycle design to the next level of development, an early commercial scale power plant retrofit. The components of the MHD power train to be designed, fabricated, and tested include: A slagging coal combustor with a rated capacity of 50 MW thermal input, capable of operation with an Eastern (Illinois {number_sign}6) or Western (Montana Rosebud) coal, a segmented supersonic nozzle, a supersonic MHD channel capable of generating at least 1.5 MW of electrical power, a segmented supersonic diffuser section to interface the channel with existing facility quench and exhaust systems, a complete set of current control circuits for local diagonal current control along the channel, and a set of current consolidation circuits to interface the channel with the existing facility inverter

As part of the MHD Integrated Topping Cycle (ITC) project, TRW was given the responsibility to organize, charter and co-chair, with the Department of Energy (DOE), an MHD Technology Transfer, Integration and Review Committee (TTIRC). The Charter of the TTIRC, which was approved by the DOE in June 1988 and distributed to the committee members, is included as part of this Summary. As stated in the Charter, the purpose of this committee is to: (1) review all Proof-of-Concept (POC) projects and schedules in the national MHD program; to assess their compatibility with each other and the first commercial MHD retrofit plant; (2) establish and implement technology transfer formats for users of this technology; (3) identify interfaces, issues, and funding structures directly impacting the success of the commercial retrofit; (4) investigate and identify the manner in which, and by whom, the above should be resolved; and (5) investigate and assess other participation (foreign and domestic) in the US MHD Program. The DOE fiscal year 1989 MHD Program Plan Schedule is included at the end of this Summary. The MHD Technology Transfer, Integration and Review Committee's activities to date have focused primarily on the ''technology transfer'' aspects of its charter. It has provided a forum for the dissemination of technical and programmatic information among workers in the field of MHD and to the potential end users, the utilities, by holding semi-annual meetings. The committee publishes this semi-annual report, which presents in Sections 2 through 11 capsule summaries of technical progress for all DOE Proof-of-Concept MHD contracts and major test facilities

Molten-caustic-leaching system integration project. Quarterly report ending March 29, 1991( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The overall strategy for the project Tasks 1 through 6 is to allow for the earliest startup of the Task 6 integrated operations with a minimum of up front costs attributed to plant modifications by deferring those modifications until necessary and by installing those modifications during planned downtime during operations. It is planned to implement only those modifications that are required in order that the plant can be operated in an integrated continuous manner and defer other modifications that will improve plant operation. The necessary modifications are those affecting the operation of the vacuum filters and the evaporator that are critical to integrated operation. When those modifications are complete, an attempt at integrated operation will be made. This short term operation will take place in May 1991 so that other deferred modifications and unforeseen problems can be resolved before going into the long term integrated test plan operations where staffing requirements more operators. During this reporting period, 30 purchase orders were submitted in January, 17 in February, and 38 in March for a total of 85 purchase orders submitted totaling $75,300. The purchase orders were for Task 1 Maintenance and Refurbishment, Task 2 Design Modifications, and Critical Parts Inventory. A work schedule was established to accomplish the Task 1 Maintenance and Refurbishment and the Task 2 Design Modifications in Sections 100 through 600 (especially the reactor, vacuum filter, and evaporator modifications) necessary for the integrated May plant test. An inventory of MCL waste drums was completed
Molten-Caustic-Leaching (Gravimelt) system integration project( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objectives of the tasks covered in this document are to design, construct, and shakedown a 20 pounds of coal per hour integrated MCL test circuit to demonstrate the feasibility of the technology for producing a demineralized and desulfurized coal that meets New Source Performance Standards (NSPS). These objectives were met with the construction and shakedown of the integrated test circuit. Although mild kiln conditions (340°C and 2 hours residence time) and a low caustic to coal ratio (1 to 1) were used, the combination of continuous operation and rigorous exclusion of air from the system allowed the production of MCL coal, from high sulfur, high ash coal, which has virtually no carbonate and volatiles loss, which does not form excessively wet cakes in during washing, and which has low alkali retention by the product MCL coal. Equipment performance was generally consistent with design requirements
Application of silicon carbide to synchrotron-radiation mirrors( )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Damage to conventional mirror materials exposed to the harsh synchrotron radiation (SR) environment has prompted the SR user community to search for more suitable materials. Next-generation insertion devices, with their attendant flux increases, will make the problem of mirror design even more difficult. A parallel effort in searching for better materials has been underway within the laser community for several years. The technology for dealing with high thermal loads is highly developed among laser manufacturers. Performance requirements for laser heat exchangers are remarkably similar to SR mirror requirements. We report on the application of laser heat exchanger technology to the solution of typical SR mirror design problems. The superior performance of silicon carbide for laser applications is illustrated by various material trades studies, and its superior performance for SR applications is illustrated by means of model calculations
