Design Consideration

The design of an air stripper is based on the flow rate, type of contaminant, concentration, temperature, and effluent requirements. The major design variables are the type of packing, gas pressure drop, and air-to-water ratio. Given those design variables, environmental engineers can determine the gas and liquid loading rates, tower diameter, and packing height by using the following mass-balance equation (Noonan and Curtis 1990):

Solar Stirling Engine Basics Explained

Solar Stirling Engine Basics Explained

The solar Stirling engine is progressively becoming a viable alternative to solar panels for its higher efficiency. Stirling engines might be the best way to harvest the power provided by the sun. This is an easy-to-understand explanation of how Stirling engines work, the different types, and why they are more efficient than steam engines.
