The assembly of a number of individual gas pipettes of the. Hempel type for a special purpose, as in the ordinary Orsat apparatus for flue gas analysis, is familiar. 3 INTRODUCTION To have proper control on combustion process, an idea about complete or complete combustion of fuel is made by the analysis of flue gas. Determination of calorific value of a fuel by Bomb calorimeter. ➢ Flue gas analysis by ORSAT apparatus. ➢ Study of valve timing diagram of Diesel Engine.

Let C be the percentage by weight of carbon in the fuel. Let x be the excess air supplied per kg of fuel.

About project SlidePlayer Terms of Service. When the volumetric analysis of dry gas is given, then the amount of air supplied per kg of fuel can be obtained by any one of the following methods Carbon content of the fuel is not given directly: By apparstus of a rubber tubing arrangement, the gas to be analyzed is drawn into the burette and flushed through several times.

Flue Gas Analysis by Orsat Apparatus | Combustion | Thermodynamics

The three way cock is open and the sample of flue gas is drawn in the measuring bottle. Since one mole of any gas occupies the same volume under the same conditions of temperature and pressure. The illustrative examples will give the reader idea about the conversion of gravimetric into volumetric analysis and vice-versa. The unabsorbed gas is finally taken back to the burette, till the level of solution in the CO2 absorption bulb stands at the constant mark and then, its stop-cock is closed.


Orsat gas analyser – Wikipedia

The lower end of the burette is connected to a water reservoir by means of a long rubber tubing. Here the CO 2 component of the flue gas is absorbed. This equation does take into consideration the complete combustion of carbon to carbon dioxide and hence approximation.

And the percentage volumetric analysis of the dry products of combustion is given as. After writing the combustion equation, we can proceed to balance the hydrogen also and the unknown. The process is repeated to oreat full absorption.

The remainder is N 2 gas. Generally, the composition of solid or liquid fuels is expressed by weight, whereas that of the gaseous fuels is expressed by volume.

Share buttons are a little bit lower. N 2 will depend on this total oxygen required. Chemical Absorption Reaction in orsat apparatus. Now the three way cock is kept in the closed position. The burette contains slightly acidulated water with a trace of chemical indicator typically methyl orange for colouration.

Calculate the atomic ratio of C: The other end is provided with a three-way stop-cock, the free end of which is further connected to a U-tube packed with glass wool for avoiding the incoming of any smoke particles, etc. For adjusting final volume, the three-way stop-cock is opened to atmosphere and the reservoir is carefully raised, till the level ofwater in it is the same as in the burette, which stands at mL mark. Auth with social network: The same technique is repeated for oxygen, using the pyrogallol, and carbon monoxide using the ammoniacal cuprous chloride.


Orsat gas analyser

The gas in the burette is expelled to the appaeatus to remove any air left in the joints, apoaratus, etc. When H 2 O vapours are excluded from the analysis, then the products of combustion are known as Dry Products of Combustion and in practice we consider the dry products of combustion. This procedure is repeated times to ensure a right sample of the gas taken for analysis.

STEP 2 The stopper of the absorption bulb, containing caustic potash solution, is opened and all the gas is forced into this bulb by raising the water reservoir. A simple and convenient apparatus used for analysis of dry flur gases by volume is analyssi an Orsat Appartus. Their stop-cocks are then closed. Personal protective equipment PPE. For converting the gravimetric analysis of the products of combustion into volumetric analysis and vice-versa, two tables are given below:
