Search Outputs from SPIRE Projects

This new (beta) section of the SPIRE website allows you to browse and search through Outputs from projects across the SPIRE portfolio. Beyond just information on the main exploitable technologies and innovations, projects are also encouraged to use this framework to share other resources that could be of use to SPIRE stakeholders and other projects, such as education and training materials, links to published papers, demonstration photos, technology reviews, etc. Guidance for Creating SPIRE Project Output Summaries is available here

IbD - Case Study 5 Process Intensification applied at Solid Reagents

The following case study is linked to industrial process intensification of flow systems. However, traditional (single-tube) plug-flow reactors have a critical downside, being the small residence time distributions for reactions requiring fast turbulent flows for good mixing. This limitation is particularly true for reactions involving solids, as plug flow reactors generally do not have the capacity to pump at speeds to keep solids suspended, leading to sedimentation and fouling at inlets/...

IbD - Case Study 3 Process Intensification applied at Mineral Beneficiation

Mineral beneficiation processes chain incorporate several unit operations operated in continuous manner. In the crushing line the solid material (typically ore) is comminuted to the particle size of centimetre scale. In grinding line, water is added and the particles are processed further into micrometer scale using grinding mills. In this stage, the particles are classified and directed to downstream processes. Finally, the valuable material is recovered in flotation line, where chemicals...

IbD - Case Study 2 Process Intensification applied at Ceramic Powder

This case study has been focused on the intensification of the free-flowing powder preparation process involved in the very beginning of the ceramic tile manufacturing process. Nowadays, the most widely used ceramic tile shaping method is uniaxial pressing of spray-dried powder in hydraulic presses .The base case involves a wet route procedure where the initial free-flowing powder is obtained from a high solid content slurry, which itself produced by wet grinding of a mix of different solid...
