Principal of Wet Scrubbers

Siya Agarwal (3769529) writes "To remove various different types of pollutants from the stream of gases, a wet scrubber is made use of. Wet Scrubbers are used in furnaces, flue, or other such devices. These devices are heavily relied upon at facilities that process propane and other types of natural gases.This task is achieved with the help of a scrubbing liquid. In this process, the gas is moved through the liquid, allowing the gas to emerge in the process free of contaminants and pollutants which were present in them before going through the scrubber.
wet scubbers
The clearing of contaminants can be achieved in various different ways based on the design of the wet scrubber. In one such process, the cleaning solution is sprayed upon the gas that does the job of attracting the heavier pollutants. In the process, they get disengaged from the gas and attached to the liquid. The contaminants are left behind once the gas is made to pass through the stream.
In another such design, a wet scrubber design that forces the gas through a pool of scrubbing fluid. On the approach of the spray, the contaminant collects the fluid and gets bounded by it. All this action occurs while the gas passes through the filtering action of the pool. Hence, we get a system that is free of dust particles and any other contaminants which hinder the efficiency of the system and the gases as well."

Developing an app that uses facebook's api, but don't want to register a fb acct

Anonymous Coward writes | about an hour ago

An anonymous reader writes "I'm a developer and I am working on an app that would make benefit of the facebook api. I am strongly anti-facebook, but I don't see a way to avoid using it as it will provide the best data and our target audience is the average user, (most of these have fbs). Is there an alternative api or network that contains friend information, like information, and event information I can use (this information is very helpful for the app)? If not, and I have to register a facebook account what can I do to limit the amount of data that they have on me? Or should I just stop caring so much about my privacy?"

Howard Davidson is a marketing guy in Arlington, MA

Marktony0 (3770615) writes "I’m a marketing guy, occasional loudmouth and always funny. Well, I think I’m funny. Just ask. By day, I’m a marketing manager at sitecues in Cambridge, MA but at night I keep on thinking about marketing. It’s a functional obsession.

I’ve been helping companies reach and engage customers for longer than Barak Obama has been in public service, yet I still refuse to be known as one who loves an early bird special. Currently, I’m in charge of messaging for sitecues by Ai Squared, a web-based accessibility tool for people with low vision. As marketing manager, I’ve overseen the company’s rollout, design, and brand strategy for the product. I’m also in charge of Nerf guns, parties and debauchery. I water the plants too. I’ve been caught repeating jokes a few times.

Maybe it’s the caffeine and Tylenol talking, but I’ve never been content working on just one gig at a time. Heck, my dad retired at age 80. I’ve been a marketing director or consultant for more than a dozen ventures over the years, building brand, messaging, and engagement for everything from military contractors to a college laundry service. I’ve even dabbled in some pirate-themed networking event planning (#100Pirates). My highlight reel includes stints working with Gemvara, influencers@, messageAMP, and Metropolis Creative. I also love to expound on marketing trends and weird news with my blog. I talk a mean game.Before embracing my inner marketer, I was an art teacher at a middle school (marketing is much easier). It took a BFA at the Massachusetts College of Art before I could realize my true calling. Now, I don’t have to grade papers, but I do have to write white papers. Hindsight is 20/20, but student loans are forever.

My personal stats: I live in Arlington, Massachusetts near Boston and hate any type of physical exertion. I also dislike dogs and cats, even the allegedly cute ones on the Internet. I’m a creature of habits, and Starbucks is a daily ritual for me. People say “Howard Davidson loves sticking his nose into other people’s business” and I confess it’s true. I also have a habit of finding jobs for all my friends, whether they like it or not.

Crytek USA Collapses, Sells Game IP To Other Developers

MojoKid (1002251) writes | 2 hours ago

MojoKid (1002251) writes "Game developer Crytek's problems have been detailed recently from various source, and it's now clear that it wasn't just the company's UK studios that were affected. Crytek announced today that it has officially moved development of its F2P shooter "Hunt: Horrors of the Guilded Age" to a German developer, ignoring the fact that the majority of the US team had apparently already quit the company. The problem? Just as in the UK, the US employees weren't getting paid. In a separate announcement, Crytek also declared that development of the Homefront series had passed entirely to developer Deep Silver. The company has stated, "On completion of the proposed acquisition, the Homefront team from Crytek's Nottingham studio would transfer their talents to Koch Media in compliance with English law and continue their hard work on upcoming shooter, "Homefront: The Revolution". Both parties hope to finalize and implement a deal soon." It's hard to see this as good news for Crytek. The company can make all the noise it wants about moving from a development studio to a publisher model, but Crytek as a company was always known for two things — the CryEngine itself, adapted for a handful of titles and the Crysis series. Without those factors, what's left?"

Chinese government probes Microsoft over anti-monopoly issues

DroidJason1 (3589319) writes | yesterday

0

DroidJason1 (3589319) writes "The Chinese government is investigating Microsoft for possible breaches of anti-monopoly laws, following a series of surprise visits to Redmond's offices in cities across China on Monday. These surprise visits were part of China's ongoing investigation, and were based on security complaints about Microsoft’s Windows operating system and Office productivity suite. Results from an earlier inspection apparently were not enough to clear Microsoft of suspicion of anti-competitive behavior. Microsoft's alleged anti-monopoly behavior is a criminal matter, so if found guilty, the software giant could face steep fines as well as other sanctions."

Cards rooting regarding burst regarding brilliance coming from Masterson super b

An anonymous reader writes "It continues to be both any precipitous and also expeditious tumble from grace for your former ace with the Indians as well as the newest member of the Cardinals.

Simply months in the past, the Indians have been publicly derided regarding backing over option regarding extending Masterson using a fairly short-term package worth concerning $17 million annually (my partner and i. e. Homer Bailey funds). Today, Masterson is two months away coming from his initial
saints superbowl ring free agency without clear notion of his open-market benefit except the particular discernible conclusion which it, like his / her velocity, provides dropped significantly.

Masterson themselves acknowledged just what he referred to as the "pessimistic/realistic" view Wednesday, inside the wake with the trade.

"[Some people will say,] 'Hey, he failed to perform in which well like we were holding hoping regarding, so possibly they dodged any bullet, '" Masterson mentioned. "But I anticipate coming out the others of this kind of month, next month and subsequent year carrying out great items. "

The Cardinals will need their chances around the once-Nasty Masty and also, frankly, they're spending handsomely for your risk. They failed to just stop trying outfielder David Ramsey, who was
super bowl rings simply regarded simply by MLB.com as their sixth-best prospect, but they also surrendered the remaining $3 million or so on Masterson's expiring contract.

But any need can be a need, as well as the Cards would, indeed, use a need. That they had a nonincome producing starting slot machine for Weekend, specifically, and also, more typically, an shortage in top quality innings from other starters given that Michael Wacha proceeded the impaired list.

Chinese anti-satellite test?

schwit1 (797399) writes | 5 hours ago

schwit1 (797399) writes "The U.S. State department is claiming that China completed a “non-destructive” anti-satellite test last week.

The State department also demanded that China refrain from further such actions. That 'oughta do it. Thanks very much, Ray.

China in turn said that the test was for a a ballistic missile defense system. According to these Chinese reports, the test was of a land-based missile designed to intercept an incoming rocket, much like Israel’s Iron Dome and the U.S. SDI systems. Such a system, however, is in many ways indistinguishable from an anti-sat system.

In the case of last week’s Chinese test, the interceptor did not apparently impact anything but instead demonstrated its ability to hit a prearranged simulated point in space."

Google, Linaro develop custom Android edition for Project Ara

rtoz (2530056) writes | yesterday

rtoz (2530056) writes "Google is working with open-source development organization Linaro to develop a special edition of Android for the Project Ara customizable smartphone.

A special edition of Android had to be created for the unique customizable design of Project Ara, said George Grey, CEO of Linaro.

  Android can already plug and play SD cards. But Grey said additional OS functionality is needed for storage, cameras and other modules that are typically inside smartphones, but can now be externally added to Project Ara.

A lot of work is also being done on UniPro transport drivers, which connect modules and components in Project Ara. UniPro protocol drivers in Android will function much like the USB protocol, where modules will be recognized based on different driver “classes,” such as those for networking, sensor, imaging, input and others.

Some attachable parts may not be recognized by Android. For those parts, separate drivers need to be developed by module makers through emulators. “That will be need to be done in a secure system so the device can’t do damage to the system,” Grey said.

Project Ara is a very disruptive concept, and it turns around conventional thinking on how to build phones, Grey said."

SpaceShipTwo flies again

schwit1 (797399) writes "The competition heats up: For the first time in six months SpaceShipTwo completed a test flight today.

The article above is from NBC, which also has a deal with Virgin Galactic to televise the first commercial flight. It is thus in their interest to promote the spacecraft and company. The following two sentences from the article however clearly confirm every rumor we have heard about the ship in the past year, that they needed to replace or completely refit the engine and that the resulting thrust might not be enough to get the ship to 100 kilometers or 62 miles:

In January, SpaceShipTwo blasted off for a powered test and sailed through a follow-up glide flight, but then it went into the shop for rocket refitting. It’s expected to go through a series of glide flights and powered flights that eventually rise beyond the boundary of outer space (50 miles or 100 kilometers in altitude, depending on who’s counting).

Hopefully this test flight indicates that they have installed the new engine and are now beginning flight tests with equipment that will actually get the ship into space."

Student Uses Oculus Rift and Kinect to Create Cool Body Swap Illusion

kkleiner (1468647) writes | 12 hours ago

kkleiner (1468647) writes "Using an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, Microsoft Kinect, a camera, and a handful of electrical stimulators, a London student's virtual reality system is showing users what it's like to swap bodies. Looking down, they see someone else's arms and legs; looking out, it's someone else's point of view; and when they move their limbs, the body they see does the same (those electrical stimulators mildly shock muscles to force a friend to mirror the user's movements). It's an imperfect system, but a fascinating example of the power of virtual reality. What else might we use VR systems for? Perhaps they'll prove useful in training or therapeutic situations? Or what about with robots, which would be easier to inhabit and control than another human? The virtual body swap may never fully catch on, but generally, virtual reality will likely prove useful for more than just gaming and entertainment."

“While other teams are also working on respectable projects in 3D printing construction technology, I have developed a product that is ready for actual-size construction rather than miniature prototypes,” Rudenko told 3DPrint.com.
