    Abstract: Industrial production of vegetable oil from palm kernel seed operational process was analysed in this research study with the extractor unit as the main focus of the study. The extractor unit consist of nine operational stages, which was modeled by applying the principle of the law of conservation of mass and energy respectively. The developed mode... Show More

    Abstract: Engine corrosion has been a long prevalent problem which is further aggravated by acids produced during combustion of fuels. Sulphur containing fuels produce sulphuric acid which must be neutralized in order to prevent corrosion at the engine cylinder lining and piston rings. In order to prevent this corrosion, lubrication oil used in combustion en... Show More

    Abstract: Coal tar pitch is broadly classified into two kinds based on their properties: Binder Pitch for aluminum and Graphite Industry Impregnated Pitch with less than 0.5% QI (Quinoline Insoluble) used in the graphite industry. To maximize value realization through downstream processing of coal tar, proposal was made to explore the feasibility of conversi... Show More
