• Fossil Fuel Solutions for the New Millennium

    The interconnection between fire and fuel is almost like the story of chicken and egg. If there was no fuel, how can fire burn up, but if there was no fire then how can fuel flaming. Manufacturing skill albeit on a small localized scale began soon therefore as the prehistoric precursor of Industrialization. The first […]

  • What are the types of refractory materials?

    There’re various types of refectories’ available now. They differ in the structural and chemical makeup and heat threshold capacities. When rightly used, your heating facilities reap the gifts of an effective heat containment device. The correct refectory content well makes a safe, cost efficient as well as low maintenance heating system which delivers regularly. The […]

  • Silica from rice husk ash

    New research has shown that rice husk ash (RHA), an agricultural waste product, could be used to synthesize nanosized hydroxy-sodalite (HS) particles, a type of zeolite. HS particles are a rich source of silica, which is an essential material for fabricating semiconductor devices. Rice husk is an abundantly available agricultural waste material that contains a […]

  • Benefits of Use of Rice Husk Ash in Concrete

    In this investigation, a feasibility study is made to use Rice Husk Ash as an admixture to an already replaced Cement with fly ash (Portland Pozzolana Cement) in Concrete, and an attempt has been made to investigate the strength parameters of concrete (Compressive and Flexural). For normal concrete, Indian Standard (IS) method of mix design […]

  • Effect of Rice Husk Ash on Cement Mortar and Concrete

    Work-ability, strength, and durability are three basics properties of concrete. Amount of useful internal work necessary to overcome the internal friction to produce full compaction is termed as Work-ability. Size, shape, surface texture and grading of aggregates, water-cement ratio, use of admixtures and mix proportion are important factors affecting work-ability. Strength is to bear the […]

  • Rising from the Ashes: Renewable Silica from Rice Husk Ash

    Special to The Digest At 758.8 million tonnes (503.6 million tonnes, milled basis), world paddy production in 2017 would stand 0.8 percent, or 5.8 million tons, above a revised estimate for 2016. The comparatively modest year-on-year increase mirrors constraints posed by tight margins and heightened competition with other crops, could entail a slow-down in the […]
