A miniaturized injection-moulded flow-cell with integrated conducting polymer electrodes for on-line electrochemical degradation of azo dye solutions

Authors: Mohammed Redha Z., Abdulla Yusuf H., Ahmed H.A., Fielden P.R., Goddard N.J., Baldock S.J.
This study investigates the effectiveness of a novel micro electrochemical flow-cell containing carbon fiber electrodes for the degradation of Azo dye solutions. The flow-cell was fabricated by an injection moulding technique, integrating three electrodes system design using an overmoulding procedure. All electrodes were fabricated from carbon fiber polymer, however, the [...]

Nonlinear autoregressive with exogenous input (NARX) modelling for fouling prediction in industrial dead-end ultrafiltration process

Authors: Shams M.B.
In this paper, a nonlinear autoregressive with exogenous input (NARX) model is developed to predict the fouling in industrial-scale dead-end ultrafiltration (UF) system. For better representation of the operating regions, experimental data for training and testing were generated using design of experiments, namely, the central composite design. The NARX model, [...]

Role of thiosulfate in susceptibility of AISI 316L austenitic stainless steels to pitting corrosion in 3.5% sodium chloride solutions

Authors: Ezuber H., Alshater A., Abulhasan M.
The susceptibility of AISI (American iron and steel institute) 316L austenitic stainless steel alloy to pitting corrosion was assessed in 3.5% chloride solutions containing various concentration of thiosulfate ions, a main sulfide oxidant product, spanning across values of 0.001, 0.005, 0.01, 0.05 and 0.1 M, at temperatures of 23, 50 [...]
