    • Adsorptive Drying of Organic Liquids- An Update 

      Joshi, S.; Humphrey, J. L.; Fair, J. R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1986-06)
      Removal of small amounts of water from organic liquids is normally handled by adsorption or by azeotropic distillation. The latter method is well documented and analysis or design is straightforward so long as the ...
    • Distillation: Energy Savings and Other Benefits From the Use of High Efficiency Packings 

      Bravo, J. L.; Fair, J. R.; Humphrey, J. L. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1985-05)
      A great deal of attention has been focused lately on the use of high-efficiency packings for distillation applications. This paper discusses benefits that can be derived from the use of these devices. In particular, ...
    • Distillation: Present Status and Future Directions 

      Fair, J. R.; Humphrey, J. L. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1984)
      Distillation will undoubtedly continue to be the most-used method for separating liquid mixtures, at any scale of operation. For this reason, and also because of its recognized energy intensiveness, distillation commands ...
    • Energy Recovery By Direct Contact Gas-Liquid Heat Exchange 

      Fair, J. R.; Bravo, J. L. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.eslwin.tamu.edu), 1988-09)
      Energy from hot gas discharge streams can be recovered by transfer directly to a coolant liquid in one of several available gas-liquid contacting devices. The design of the device is central to the theme of this paper, ...
    • Energy Savings by Use of Disk/Donut Baffling in Tubular Heat Exchangers 

      Taborek, J. J.; Klein, D. E.; Fair, J. R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.eslwin.tamu.edu), 1988-09)
      The use of segmental baffling in shell-and-tube heat exchangers has become standard design practice, and process heat transfer specialists recognize that such baffling is the basis for most design procedures. Data from ...
    • Evaluation of Packed Columns in Supercritical Extraction Processes 

      Rathkamp, P. J.; Fair, J. R.; Humphrey, J. L. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1986-06)
      The purpose of the present work is to add to the base of knowledge in the use of packed columns when used in supercritical extraction service. Experimental studies were performed on a one-inch diameter supercritical ...
    • Liquid-Liquid Extraction Processes 

      Fair, J. R.; Humphrey, J. L. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1983)
      Liquid-liquid extraction is the separation of one or more components of a liquid solution by contact with a second immiscible liquid called the solvent. If the components in the original liquid solution distribute themselves ...
    • Membrane Separations Research 

      Fair, J. R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.eslwin.tamu.edu), 1992-04)
      The use of membranes for separating gaseous and liquid mixtures has grown dramatically in the past 15 years. Applications have been dominated by light gas separations and water purification. During this pioneering period, ...
    • New Energy Efficient Method for Cleaning Oilfield Brines with Carbon Dioxide 

      Little, C. T.; Seibert, A. F.; Bravo, J. L.; Fair, J. R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.eslwin.tamu.edu), 1991-06)
      Water contaminated with hydrocarbons often results during the production of oil. The polluted water, which may be naturally occurring or a result of water or steam flooding operations, must be cleaned before disposal ...
    • A State-Of-The-Art Review of Low Energy Separation Processes 

      Humphrey, J. L.; Fair, J. R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1983)
      An amount of energy equivalent to 800,000 bpd of crude oil is consumed in distillation processes in the petrochemical and petroleum refining industries in the United States. This paper reviews separation processes, including ...
