SUBSTANCE: method for to determination of dispersants efficiency includes recording of the physical parameters when the phase of the liquid sample being examined and placed in containers is changed. During method implementation, at least four containers are filled with liquid at the same time, then oil products and a portion of dispersant applied dropwise are successively applied to the liquid surface in each container. Then the containers are shaken for a time equal to the natural dispersion time for petroleum products in the test liquid, and the contents of the containers is shock-frozen until it freezes completely. The frozen contents of the containers are then separated by two horizontal cuts into the upper, middle and bottom blocks. The middle and bottom blocks are removed from the container shell, and the resulting ice samples are melted and filtered separately. After that, the mass of the filtered residue of oil products obtained from each sample is measured. The dispersant efficiency of the is determined by the ratio of the weight of the filtered oil product to the total mass of oil products in the mixture placed in the test vessel, taking into account the natural dispersion determined at the zero stage of testing, where at the zero stage of testing, the natural dispersion of oil products in the thickness of the liquid sample to be examined is determined at least to the middle zone of test capacity and natural dispersion time.

EFFECT: increased accuracy and speed of dispersants efficiency determination.

SUBSTANCE: invention relates to machine building, in particular, to devices of safety systems. The method of multi-criteria assessment of comfort of a working area in production premises consists in determination of concentration of air-dispersed admixtures and parameters of microclimate of air volume, first they determine working area air dustiness as the first criterion of its comfort. For this purpose they prepare and tune equipment for determination of pure filter mass, then the pure filter is weighed on a scale. After this they tune a plant for forced deposition of a dust aerosol in the working area of the production room. Then air is sampled with capture of dust particles on the filter, the filter is weighed with caught particles of dust, the concentration of the dust aerosol is calculated in mg per cubic metre. Afterwards they assess dustiness of working area air, comparing the obtained concentration with the permissible value. Further they measure air temperature using a thermograph or psychrometer, air moisture using a stationary or an aspiration psychrometer, and they determine speed of air movement using a cup or a windmill anemometer. On the basis of the produced parameters - air temperature in the working area, its moisture and speed of movement, they calculate extent of comfort, afterwards they assess comfort of microclimate parameters according to the following scale: 1 - very hot; 2 - too hot; 3 - warm, but nice; 4 - feeling of comfort; 5 - cool, but nice; 6 - cold; 7 - very cold. Thenthey select an indicator powder from the entire set of sorbents, available gas analysers with account of statistic data of this or that production type, then appropriate indicator tubes are prepared for each detected air admixture, filling them with the appropriate indicator powder, and a sample is taken with the help of a gas analyser. At the same time a certain volume of air passes via an indicator tube for a certain period of time, afterwards they analyse the taken sample, for this purpose they apply an indicator tube to a standard scale available within a set of this or that type of a gas analyser, and by the length of the indicator powder that changed its colour they determine concentration of the harmful substance in the inspected air. Then actual concentration of hazardous substance produced as a result of the experiment, is compared with the maximum permissible concentration (MPC) by norms, and the comparable assessment table is filled in, then, using the tables, they detect substances with effect of summation, and perform calculations according to the following formula: C1MPC1+C2MPC2++CnMPCn1, where C1, C2, … Cn - actual concentrations of substances in atmospheric air, mg/m3; MPC1, MPC2, … MPCn - maximum permissible concentrations of the same substances, mg/m3. Then with account of the fact that whenever several substances with summation of action are jointly present in atmospheric air, the sum of their concentrations should not exceed one, the conclusion is made on compliance with norms of each of the specified substances separately and with their simultaneous action.

EFFECT: higher efficiency, effectiveness and reliability of system actuation.

SUBSTANCE: proposed method consists in defining concentration of aero dispersed impurities and air microclimate parameters. First, dust level of working zone is defined as the first criterion of comfort. For this, hardware is prepared and tuned for determination of clean filter bulk. Then clean filter is weighed to adjust the unit for forced deposition of dust aerosol in shop-floor working zone. Then, air is sampled with dust particles trapping on filter to weight filter with trapped particles so that dust aerosol concentration is calculated in mg per square meter. Note here that air volume (m3) that passed through filter should be pre-reduced to normal conditions, that is, to volume is would occupy at 0°C and 101325 Pa. Than, dust level is defined to compare obtained concentration with tolerable magnitude so that parameters of air micro climate may be estimated as second criterion of comfort. Note that, first, air temperature is measured by thermograph or dry-and-wet-bulb thermometer. Then, air humidity is defined by whatever instruments and air velocity is measured to calculate comfort level in working zone therefrom. Now, degree of comfort is estimated on the following scale: 1 - very hot, 2 - very warm, 3 - warm, but pleasant, 4 - sense of comfort, 5 - pleasant chilly, 6 - cold, 7 - very cold.

SUBSTANCE: method of determining content of water in petroleum products involves drawing a sample of the analysed petroleum product through a layer of water-coagulating material. The sample of the analysed petroleum product is then drawn through a layer of bulky water-absorbing material. Concentration of water in the petroleum product is then determined from the weight of water held in the water-absorbing material, for which a sample of the petroleum product which does not contain water is first passed through a layer of water-coagulating material and a layer of bulky water-absorbing material. The bulky water-absorbing material is then weighed and that weight is taken as the standard, and to determine content of water in the similar analysed petroleum product, the same bulky water-absorbing material with identical geometric dimensions is used and the sample has the same volume as the standard. After passing the sample of the analysed petroleum product through a layer of bulky water-absorbing material, the latter is weighed and the obtained weight is compared with the standard weight.

EFFECT: simple and accurate determination of the weight of water in an analysed petroleum product.

Preliminary calibration involves temporary connection of the outlet of the pipeline to a drain line having a control filter. The liquid with the measured volume and contaminants deposited on the control filter of the drain line and collection line are then passed through the pipeline. The compensation factor kt is determined using the formula: where m1t is the mass of contaminants in the liquid passing through the pipeline during calibration, and contaminants deposited on the control filter of the drain line; m2t is the mass of contaminants deposited on the control filter of the collection line; V0t is the volume of liquid passing through the pipeline during calibration; V2t is the volume of liquid passing through the collection line during calibration.
