Research on the electrocoagulation (EC) of hexane extractable materials (HEM) has been conducted at the University of New Orleans using a commercial bench-scale EC reactor. A series of EC experiments were performed using a synthetic emulsion with a HEM concentration of approximately 700 mg/L−1. It was confirmed that EC of HEM follows first-order kinetics, and kinetic constants of 0.0441 s−1 and 0.0443 s−1 were obtained from applying both the dispersion and tanks-in-series (TIS) models, respectively. In both cases, R 2 was 0.97. Also, the TIS model indicated that each cell of the EC behaves as an independent continuous-stirred tank reactor.

More about this publication?
  • Original and timely technical papers addressing problems of shipyard techniques and production of merchant and naval ships appear in this quarterly publication. Since its inception, the Journal of Ship Production and Design (formerly the Journal of Ship Production) has been a forum for peer-reviewed, professionally edited papers from academic and industry sources. As such it has influenced the worldwide development of ship production engineering as a fully qualified professional discipline. The expanded scope seeks papers in additional areas, specifically ship design, including design for production, plus other marine technology topics, such as ship operations, shipping economics, and safety. Each issue contains a well-rounded selection of technical papers relevant to marine professionals.
