An Improved Rotary Singulator, Burford J. Furman, J. M. Henderson Jan 1983

An Improved Rotary Singulator, Burford J. Furman, J. M. Henderson

Burford J. Furman

A new operating approach for a previously existing rotary singulator was developed which improves the versatility of the device. This was accomplished by the implementation of a modular mechanism that performed the basic functions of agitation, gating, pocket formation, and exit, all inherent in this type of singulation device.

Equation Of State Of Fluid Nh3 From P-V-T And Ultrasound Measurements To 12 Kbar, R. L. Mills, D. H. Lienbenberg, Richard Alan Lesar, Ph. Pruzan

Richard Alan Lesar

A piston-cylinder apparatus was used to measure the pressure, volume, temperature, and ultrasonic velocity (P,V,T,u) of fluid NH3 from 195 to 320 K at pressures up to 12 kbar. Over 1200 sets of P-V-T-u and P-V-T data were fitted to a Tait-type equation of state (EOS) by non-linear least-squares minimization. With quadratic terms in T for the two fitted parameters, the rms deviation is ± 0.2% in V and ± 0.9% in u, which is comparable to the experimental error. The simple Tait EOS is useful over the entire fluid range between the vaporization and melting curves ...
