Properties of Polyimides

Poly(ether)imides (PEI) Properties Poly(ether)imides (PI PEI) are high performance engineering thermoplastics of amber to transparent color They have outstanding thermal mechanical and chemical properties and are often the best choice for the most demanding applications where very high mechanical strength in combination with high temperature corrosion and wear resistance is required

10 Properties of Concrete and their Uses

One of the chief characteristics influencing durability of concrete is its permeability to increase of water and other potentially deleterious materials The desired low permeability in concrete is achieved by having adequate cement sufficient low water/cement ratio by ensuring full compaction of concrete and by adequate curing

Solar drying and organoleptic characteristics of two

This study was done to evaluate the drying performance efficiency and effectiveness of five different types of improved low-cost solar driers in terms of moisture loss from two tropical African fish species Clarias gariepinus (African sharp tooth catfish) and Oreochromis niloticus (Nile tilapia) and testing the organoleptic characteristics of the dried samples

PETG Plastic Properties

PETG has outstanding thermoforming characteristics for applications that require deep draws complex die cuts and precise molded in details without sacing structural integrity It is used often in the OP market for fabricating face masks burn management devices and check sockets

Solid Waste Characteristics

Dec 03 2014The major physical characteristics measured in waste are: (1) density (2) size distribution of components and (3) moisture content Other characteristics which may be used in making decision about solid waste management are: (1) colour (2) voids (3) shape of components (4) optical property (5) magnetic properties and (6) electric properties

Burning Characteristics and the Fuel Properties of the Dry

Dec 06 2018As an alternative treatment to hydrothermal carbonization sewage sludge (SS) was subjected to dry carbonization at temperatures of 200–700 C to produce pyrochar The fuel properties of the obtained chars were characterized and their combustibility was checked by thermal

The Types of Coal: Composition Usage and Energy Value

Jan 29 2020The stored energy potential within coal is described as the "calorific value " "heating value " or "heat content " It's measured in British thermal units (Btu) or millijoules per kilogram (MJ/kg) A Btu is the amount of heat that will warm approximately 0 12 U S gallons—a pound of water—by 1 degree Fahrenheit at sea level

Freeze Drying / Lyophilization Information: Basic Principles

The drying portion of freeze drying is actually a two part process consisting of Primary Drying and Secondary Drying The bulk of water removed from the product during freeze drying is via sublimation of all of the free ice crystals during the primary drying step Organic solvents are also removed during primary drying


Drying has a number of close synonyms Dehydration is the process of depriving a material of its water or the loss of water as a constituent The term is often used in food-drying operations to describe processes which strive to expel moisture but retain other volatile constituents in the original material and which are responsible for valuable aromatic and flavoring properties

2 1 Silicon Dioxide Properties

Table 2 1 shows some important properties of silicon dioxide It can be noted that oxides grown in a dry atmosphere have a higher density which implies less impurities and a better quality oxide than when grown in a wet atmosphere Thermal expansion refers to the oxide's volume expansion or shrinkage when exposed to a range of temperatures

Grain storage techniques

Comprehensive data on the numerous physical and thermal properties of grain are available in texts such as Brooker et al (1974) and Brook Foster (1981) Moisture Content Convention dictates that moisture contents of grains are usually measured on a wet basis ie the mass of moisture per unit mass of wet grain and written as X % (wb)
