However, because no gas pressure sensor can withstand the melt at a high pressure above 100 MPa, we investigated the change in gas pressure in the pipe that connects the gas vent to the vacuum pumping system.
1 show a schematic flow in a gas vent with a rectangular channel (height: H, width: W, H<<W) while flash generates.
In the other mechanism, flash generates when material flows into small chinks in a mold such as a gas vent. The latter mechanism is predominant in the molding of smaller products like electrical parts.
During the trial, methane gas from four identified gas vents, already installed at dumpsite, was collected and transported through 900 feet long gas pipeline to one point for testing and flaring.
