Fuel Lab Prototype 2

Telly Ayangma
This is the first draft of the design of a laboratory to analyse Heavy Fuel Oil used in Power Plant to generate energy. The properties to be analyzed are Viscosity, Density, Sediments, Asphaltene, Ash, Metals( Al+Si, Ca, Zn, Na, P, V), Flash Point, Pour point, Water and Carbon residue.
Before an actual schematic of the lab is to be drawn, we need to visualize how a chemist goes about analyzing these different properties. This means taking into account; analysis methods overlaps, incompatible equipment left in proximity, substances that would need to be disposed and try to make the pathway as circular as possible to save time and energy. Avoid zig-zags.

Fuel lab steps

Telly Ayangma
The list of properties to be tested in the right order. The properties are organized in such a way that the chemist comes in one way and comes out the order. The process has to be as smooth as possible. 
The goal is to is also to make the analysis save time, energy, money and lives by watching out for the following loopholes and planning accordingly. -Watch out for analysing methods that overlap-Watch out for equipment that can produce hazards if put together-Watch out for substances that would need to be disposed of.

Fuel Transportation

Girikanth Avadhanula
Refinery products can be shipped to various destinations using multiple modes of transport. For example, a refinery could be shipping to some depots through pipeline, some through rail and some through ships. Each of these modes of transport have a particular batch size and the arrival rates could vary. Meanwhile, the refinery could be producing MS/HSD at a particular rate (and std. dev). This model simulates the impact of the inflow and outflow on the storage capacities. The assumption is that if the mean flow on inbound is balanced with the total mean flow on outbound, the storage levels would fluctuate within certain bounds. Would they? We can simulate and see. This model requires validation with the field study as well.
