Abstract

Indirect electrochemical oxidation of phenol and its derivatives was investigated by using MnO2 rotating cylinder electrode. Taguchi experimental design method was employed to find the best conditions for the removal efficiency of phenol and its derivatives generated during the process. Two main parameters were investigated, current density (C.D.) and electrolysis time. The removal efficiency was considered as a response for the phenol and other organics removal. An orthogonal array L16, the signal to noise (S/N) ratio, and the analysis of variance were used to test the effect of designated process factors and their levels on the performance of phenol and other organics removal efficiency. The results showed that the current density has the higher influence on performance of organics removal while the electrolysis time has the lower impact on the removal performance. Multiple regressions was utilized to acquire the equation that describes the process and the predicted equation has a correlation coefficient (R2) equal to 98.77%. The best conditions were found to get higher removal efficiency. Removal efficiency higher than 95% can be obtained in the range of C.D. of 96-100 mA/cm2 and electrolysis time of 3.2 to 5 h. The behavior of the chemical oxygen demand (COD) mineralization denotes to a zero order reaction and the rate of reaction controlled by active chlorine reaction not by mass transfer of phenol towards the anode.

Abstract

Equilibrium and rate of mixing of free flowing solid materials are found using gas fluidized bed. The solid materials were sand (size 0.7 mm), sugar (size0.7 mm) and 15% cast iron used as a tracer. The fluidizing gas was air with velocity ranged from 0.45-0.65 m/s while the mixing time was up to 10 minutes. The mixing index for each experiment was calculated by averaging the results of 10 samples taken from different radial and axial positions in fluidized QVF column 150 mm ID and 900 mm height.
The experimental results were used in solving a mathematical model of mixing rate and mixing index at an equilibrium proposed by Rose. The results show that mixing index increases with increasing air velocity and mixing time until it reaches an optimum value then decrease to an equilibrium value. The results also show the dependency of the mixing index on the particle size of the tracer component.
The statistical analysis of the obtained theoretical mixing index versus the experimental mixing index shows that the standard error is 0.92 % (about 1 %) with the correlation coefficient of 0.9857 and the total residual of 0.002 for the ninth observation of the mixing index (theoretical versus experimental) over 95% confidence level.

تم دراسة معامل الخلط عند الاتزان ومعدل الخلط لمواد حرة الجريان بأستخدام عمود هواء متميع. المواد التي تم خلطها هي الرمل ( قطر الجسيمات 0.7 ملم) والسكر (قطر الجسيمات0.7 ملم) وبرادة الحديد وهي تمثل المادة الكاشفة بتركيز 15% وزنا. معدل سرعة الهواء كان بين 0.45 و 0.65 م/ثا بينما زمن الخلط كان لحد 10 دقائق. معامل الخلط لكل تجربة كان يحسب بأخذ عشرة نماذج ذات مواقع مختلفة قطريا وخطيا من عمود التميع ذو القطر الداخلي 150 ملم وأرتفاعه 900 ملم.تم أستخدام النتائج العملية في حل موديل رياضي لمعدل الخلط ومعامل الخلط عند الأتزان مقترح من قبل Rose. النتائج التجريبية أستعملت لحل موديل رياضي لمعدل الجريان و معامل الخلط عند الاتزان أقترح من قبل .Rose النتائج بينت ان معامل الخلط يزداد بزيادة سرعة الهواء وزمن الخلط حتى يصل للقيمة المثلى ثم ينخفض الى أن يصل للاتزان. نتائج معدل الخلط بينت أعتمادها على مقدار الفرق بين حجم جسيمات المادة الكاشفة. أشار التحليل الإحصائي لكل من معامل الخلط النظري و العملي إلى أن الخطأ المعياري كان 0.92 % (حوالي 1 %) و معامل ارتباط 0.9857 ومجموع المتبقيات لتسع مشاهدات كان 0.002 لمستوى ثقة 95%.
