AIR TRAVEL – 04/10/17

Growth in business and a countries GDP is often directly proportional to growth in air passenger traffic. Domestic air passenger traffic in India grew by 21.6% in 2015-16 over 2014-15. So things must be going well! This was probably the last thing the Wright Brothers envisaged when they made their first flight at Kitty Hawk in December 1903. The basis of flight being an extension of the principle first framed…

PA Hilton’s Combustion Unit

Fuelling Our Future – Part One Certainly for the short term we are stuck with traditional hydrocarbon based fuels. Scientists apply ever more complex solutions to gaining just a few more metres from every drop of precious fuel. The dynamics of development make these incremental performance gains limited. Traffic growth and all this brings to society as a whole makes the need for transition to safer, long-term fuels more relevant…

Studying Continuous Distillation By Operation Training Plant

STUDYING CONTINUOUS DISTILLATION BY OPERATION TRAINING PLANT
May 8, 2017

Distillation is the separation or partial separation of a liquid feed mixture into components or fractions by selective boiling (or evaporation) and condensation. Distillation is mainly characterized in two types, Continuous Distillation and Batch Distillation. Continuous distillation, a form of distillation, is an ongoing separation in which a mixture is continuously (without interruption) fed into the process and separated fractions are removed continuously as output streams. Whereas, batch distillation is, where the mixture is added to the…

November 2, 2016

There was a time, not long ago, when employers could rely on new hires to possess rudimentary knowledge of basic assembly methods, schematic diagrams, and proper use of hand tools. These skills were the result of individuals who grew up maintaining their cars. Yet that way of life is largely a thing of the past, much to the dismay of employers. The current focus on advanced technologies and high-end skills…
