|Title: ||KEROSENE DESULPHURIZATION BY ACID TREATMENT|
|Authors: ||NDAGANA, MOHAMMED GIMBA|
|Issue Date: ||23-Jul-2013|
|Abstract: ||This work useJ Chemical Engineering Unit Operations anJ processes tt) carry out
J es ulphuri zation of kerosene using JitTerent concentrations of tetraoxosll ,lphate (V I) aciJ
(75, 80, 85, 90 and 95 percent) at various contacting times of 10, 20, 30,40, and 50 minutes.
The amount of Sulphur removal was determined for each concentrated acid with time using
Sulphur in oil Analyzer. The result shows that the highest amount of total sulphur content
removal was achieved with 95 percent of tetraoxosulphate (VI) acid at the best contacting
time of 30 minutes.
Characteristics of treated kerosene like flash point, smoke point, specific gravity and
colour of ~ome treated samples were determined to ch~ck the consistency of treated kerosene
