|Issue Date: ||Oct-2006|
|Abstract: ||The present study involves the deodorization of kerosene using sawdust as adsorbent.
The adsorbent was developed in the laboratory, using ammonium sulphate as the
activating chemical. The sample was carbonized at a temperature of 550°C for sixty
minutes, after which water was used to wash as well as to recover the activating
chemical, and then it was oven dried for twenty-four hours.
The sample was subjected to some physico-chemical analysis namely: pore volume
analysis, ash content determination, moisture content determination, volatile content
determination, bulk density determination, and surface area determination.
The following results were obtained for the deodorized kerosene: a density of 800kg/m
specific gravity of 0.82, flash point of 44°C, smoke point of 21mm|
